Former Congress Centre Dipoli will serve as Aalto University's main building from autumn 2017 onwards. As a building, it represents a new type of multi-purpose design that showcases the University's expertise, activities and people.
Dipoli will offer the entire Aalto community and its stakeholders meeting places and work spaces as well as event and exhibition facilities. The building will also house several cafeterias and restaurants that will be open to all.
The four Aalto University schools of technology are based in Otaniemi in Espoo, 10 km from the center of Helsinki, on a campus designed by Alvar Aalto. Otaniemi has the highest concentration of high technology in the Nordic countries. A unique combination of education, study and business is densely packed into this small area.
Aalto University campus in Espoo and its venues are easily accessible by public transportation and by car. Helsinki Airport is only half an hour drive away and bus journey to Helsinki takes just 15-20 minutes. By the end of 2017 Espoo will have its own underground connected to Helsinki network.
