Sign up for the Opening Carnival is open!

HYY, student organisations and the University combine their strength at the Opening Carnival. The 2017 Opening Carnival is held on Monday 4 September from 2 pm to 6 pm in the Main Building and Porthania as well as on the streets near the buildings! The detailed programme and schedule of the event will be published in late August.

Now you can register your organisation for the event through Lyyti: With the form, you can sign up your organisation for a stand at the Opening Carnival. Signing up end on 13 August 12 pm. This year, organisations are positioned in a new way: stand location is not dependent on the type of organisation anymore. If you want to have certain kinds of organisations neighbouring your stand, please let us know in the form.
If your organisation is interested in performing at the Opening Carnival, please visit HYY’s Specialist–Producer Arttu Lehtinen to discuss what kind of performance you could organise. This meeting is held on 15 June at 3 pm–5 pm in HYY's office (at Mannerheimintie 5 A, 2nd floor). For more information:

Invite international students in your activities – Welcome Fair on 29th and 30th of August

In August it is possible for associations active within HYY to present your activities for international degree and exchange students. Welcome fair takes place at the Language Center of the University of Helsinki on 29th of August 10 and 17 p.m. and 30th of August between 10 and 16 p.m.

International students can arrange their affairs for their stay at the Welcome fair. Fortunately there’s more to study life than just applications, forms and service. Go international and invite international students in your activities! The amount of places is limited, enrol your association soon enough. We will confirm the visiting hours for groups of students from different faculties in August.
