We provide the organisations operating under us with different facilities they can use. The New Student House and Domma both have facilities for organising meetings, parties, academic dinner parties and sauna evenings. Some of the facilities can be reserved when needed, whereas for others, reservations are allocated during specific reservation rounds. Organisations operating under us can also apply for their own organisational premises. This guide includes information on the facilities we provide and how to reserve them.
Alina Hall is a suitable location for your organisation when you are planning academic dinner parties or other large parties. Alina features a well-equipped kitchen where it is possible to prepare a reasonably large menu. The sound system and light table of the hall help you keep the party going and the atmosphere high. Alina is located on the third floor of the New Student House. Organisations operating under us may reserve Alina Hall for their own use during the reservation rounds that are held twice a year. Alina is very popular, which means that you will need to be alert when the rounds take place!
Mannerheimintie 5 A, 3rd floor
€70 / reservation. We also collect a user deposit of €100, which is returned if everything goes well during the reservation.
When you reserve Alina Hall, the reservation includes the hall itself, a kitchen and a lobby. The hall has tables and chairs for an 80-person dinner party and also features loudspeakers, a mixer and lighting equipment. The kitchen has two stoves and ovens, a coffee maker, a kettle, a heating cabinet, a fast dishwasher, a fridge and a freezer.
There is no wheelchair-accessible entrance to the premises, as they can only be accessed by stairs. The premises have a wheelchair that can be borrowed as well as the opportunity to use an induction loop that can be borrowed from our Services Office. The premises also have an accessible toilet. Theatrical smoke is not used in Alina, but blinking lights may be used. It is possible to bring an assistance or guide dog into the premises.
The premises can accommodate 80 people for academic dinner parties and 100 people for other types of events. To ensure the safety and smooth flow of parties organised in Alina, there must be four security persons in each event and at least one of the security persons must have attended the annually organised user training for Alina. We require the security persons to sign an agreement that is returned to our Services Office when collecting the keys.
Does your organisation need a meeting room to organise a seminar or your autumn meeting, for instance? We provide organisations with meeting facilities that can accommodate even larger groups. The facilities are located in the New Student House and Domma, and all facilities feature the usual meeting technology as well as a coffee maker and a kettle.

We also provide organisations with premises for more permanent use. In their own premises, organisations can freely organise activities that reflect their own nature. Some wish to offer their members a collective living room where their members can spend time together, while others need flexible multipurpose facilities for various events. The organisational premises are located in the New Student House and Domma, and organisations can apply for them during the allocation process for premises organised every other year. In the allocation of premises, the organisational premises are always allocated to organisations for two years at a time.
Keys for reservations taking place on weekdays are collected from the Services Office during its opening hours on the day of the reservation. For reservations during the weekend or on a public holiday, the keys must be collected by 3 pm on the previous working day.
The keys are returned to HYY’s Services Office by noon on the first working day after the reservation.
You must ensure that the facilities are suitably clean and the trash taken out after use. Additional instructions on cleaning Alina Hall can be found in Alina’s instructional booklet.
The user fees for Alina Hall and Sivistys are paid at our Services Office when collecting the keys. Card is the only accepted payment method.
Our facilities are meant to be used by organisations operating under us, which unfortunately means that private events cannot be organised in them.
We organise an extensive allocation of organisational premises every other year. Applying for premises for your organisation is possible during this process. In addition to this, we organise a supplementary allocation process twice a year. We announce all allocation processes both in our newsletter for organisations and on our website.
Absolutely! You can furnish the organisational premises granted to you in the allocation of premises to make them truly reflect your organisation. You can also apply for a furniture purchasing grant for purchasing fixed furniture at any time during the year. Further information on grants for organisations is available in a separate guide.
Our organisational premises follow the principles of safer space, which are drafted in cooperation with all organisations that use the same premises.
