The University rents out spaces for companies and academic communities as well as public and non-profit organisations, associations and non-governmental organisations. Facilities are not rented out for political party or religious events or for commercial events that compete with the University’s activities, such as seminars and training courses subject to a fee.
The Centre for Properties and Facilities has a web page describing the capacity, equipment and price for each teaching facility (link in Finnish). This page lists the contact details for booking each room. Teaching rooms are typically rented during the opening hours of the building, for periods of time beginning on the hour. Bookings can usually be made only for the ongoing academic term. Bookings for the following academic year are accepted from the preceding June. For example, bookings for the academic year 2015-2016 can be made beginning in June 2015. Rooms in the Main Building and Porthania, however, are unavailable for the day on which the new academic year begins or during the University’s annual celebrations. Examples of the lecture rooms >>
The university buildings are closed on Sundays and on public holidays.
In addition to teaching rooms, the University has other facilities, such as the biological stations in Kilpisjärvi and Lammi, as well as the Tvärminne zoological station, Kaisa House, LUOMUS and the Observatory. Venues in the research stations, libraries and museums are booked through the unit in question. The relevant contact details are available from the website of the unit.
