Aalto University campus

The campus of the educational institution is suburban. It combines the features of a rural and urban campus. Students live separately from the city and create a close-knit community. At the same time, they are not very far from the city and have access not only to urban entertainment, such as cinemas and restaurants, but also to outdoor activities. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. Aalto University regularly accepts students for international exchange programs, providing both local and international students with the opportunity to come into contact with different cultures and gain unique experience.
