Welcome to Finland! 

What is a sitz? How many student organisations are there at the University of Helsinki?

The Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY) is arranging a welcome event for new international students. Come to try different Finnish snacks, test your knowledge of Finnish life and get to know other international students! 

The event will be held on 11 September at 5-7 am at Wilhelmsson Hall, New Student House (5th floor). New Student House is located at Mannerheimintie 5A. 

Sign up by September 10 at 8 am.

Wilhelmsson Hall is accessible by lift. The doorways are narrower than 90 cm in some places, so the space is not fully accessible. There is an accessible toilet. 

At HYY’s events, you can participate in discussions and activities without fear of inappropriate treatment or harassment. Safe space is created in the interaction between people, and each one of us is responsible for this.
