Representative Council Elections voting is on!


Whether you are satisfied with your Student Union’s current direction or ready to change course, use your right to vote at

Elections are conducted on 31st of October to the 2nd of November and  5th-7th of November.

The policy decisions made by the Representative Council affect every single one of the around 27,000 students of the University of Helsinki, whose voice HYY’s Representative Council is elected to represent. By voting in the elections, you are having your say on what kind of issues the Student Union focuses on and how it uses its funds. As HYY cooperates closely with the City of Helsinki, your vote also affects developments related to student housing and public transport. In other words, these are elections you should vote in!
