Building a diverse Otaniemi

Our aim is to create an internationally known, interactive and versatile campus that supports cooperation with the businesses and other operators in the area. We want to create a campus that is more than just a place for studying and working.

Otaniemi has developed into a concentrated and versatile campus area, where students, researchers and businesses innovate together. The Aalto University campus is an excellent environment for lifelong learning.
