Booking rounds for Alina Hall begin March 13th

The booking rounds for Alina Hall for fall 2017 begin March 13th. The booking period
begins from the 4th of September. The reservations are made through an electronic form during the booking rounds. There are two official rounds: First booking round (21 - 27 March) and second booking round (29 March - 4 April). There will also be an advance booking round (13 - 20 March). Each organisation can obtain a maximum of two (2) reservations to Alina for fall 2017.  More specific information on the booking rounds as well as the links to the electronic forms will be sent out closer to the booking rounds.

NB: The staircase A of the New Student House will be under piping renovation during the summer. The renovation is due the 1st of September but in case it is not ready by then, we might be forced to cancel some of the reservations. If that should happen, representatives of the student union will contact the organisations during the summer.

Your organisation to provide picture of the week for HYY’s Instagram?

Do you want to offer a picture or video of your organisation’s epic event or some other fantastic activity for HYY’s Instagram, but do not have enough material for the entire week?
This is now possible with HYY’s Picture of the Week campaign!
Organisations operating under HYY create lots of unbelievable events and activities, and we want to feature them on our Instagram. Send a message containing a picture of the activity of your choice to HYY’s Facebook page and include the following information:
- Name of the organisation
- What is happening in the picture
- Anything else you want us to mention about the picture
(- Information about the photographer)

Your picture just might become the picture of the week in HYY’s Instagram! The picture of the week is published on Mondays in HYY’s Instagram (@hyy_hus).

HYY retains the right to use the picture later in its own communications. We will, however, separately negotiate with the photographer/organisation in case of other uses, such as commercial use with external partners.

Do not forget the takeovers of HYY’s Instagram either! During a takeover, your organisation can take over HYY’s Instagram for the entire week! Read more here.
