The Student Union is looking for Accessibility Tutors


The Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY) is in search of four ACCESSIBILITY TUTORS to act at each of the University of Helsinki’s different campuses at the City Centre, Kumpula, Viikki and Meilahti.

Accessibility tutoring began with a pilot run in autumn 2015. The concept was a success, and now it is time to expand it. For each campus, HYY is primarily looking for someone who studies at the campus in question and has experience of the situation and problem areas regarding accessibility at that campus. Accessibility tutors are expected to for example help students and student organisations with their accessibility problems and to offer answers to their questions that may sometimes be quite tricky. The chosen tutors will be remunerated with 100 euros.

Free-form applications addressed to HYY’s Member of the Board Antti Pollari (in charge of tutoring) should be sent to the following address: Student Union of the University of Helsinki, Mannerheimintie 5A, 2nd floor, 00100 Helsinki. Applications can also be sent electronically to by 30 April 2016 at noon. In your application, please specify the campus where you would like to act as an accessibility tutor.

For more information on the position, please contact HYY’s Member of the Board Antti Pollari, tel. 050 543 9611, email
