Flora

This year, we will get to celebrate Flora’s Day, the joint springtime celebration of the students and personnel of the University of Helsinki, on the Viikki campus on Friday 12 May!

Flora 2023

This year, Flora’s Day takes over the Viikki campus, specifically the lobby and courtyard of the EE building. During the event, you will get to enjoy music, food, drinks and diverse activities! If you want, you can also explore the interesting facilities of the Viikki campus and learn about the disciplines taught on the campus on campus tours. The campus tours have separate registration, and you can take part in them even if you are not coming to the Flora’s Day celebration itself.

Flora’s Day is jointly organised by HYY, the University of Helsinki and the faculty organisations of Viikki, which means that the day will be filled with all kinds of interesting activities all around the event area. Various musical performances will be seen on the stage, with a surprise artist to cap off the evening! We will be serving a diverse selection of food and drinks – there will definitely be something for everyone!
