Did you know that you can continue to use the University’s library services after graduating?

The Helsinki University Library provides a range of resources to enhance your professional skills. You can access the electronic material and printed books and journals in your field at all of the Library’s branches. You can also book the alumni room on the 2nd floor (room 2024) of Kaisa Library for a meeting, group work or open discussion. You can book the alumni room for two hours at a time on Mon-Fri between 4 - 8 pm and on Sat 11 am - 5 pm by sending email to alumni(at)helsinki.fi

After you graduate from the University of Helsinki or end your employment with the University, you will no longer be entitled to use your helsinki.fi email.

If you register as an alumnus or alumna, you can start using the alumni email address, which is of the format firstname.lastname@alumni.helsinki.fi. Please note that the alumni email address is a redirection address and it is not connected to your helsinki.fi address: it does not contain a mailbox, and your old emails will not be forwarded there.

If you are applying for a new address you must meet the following criteria:

  1. You are a current or former University of Helsinki degree student or a former University of Helsinki employee.
  2. You have registered as an alumnus or alumna.
  3. You agree to adhere to the alumni email address terms of use. Read the terms of use here.

We will inform you when your alumni email address is ready to use.
