Sign up for the Opening Carnival!

The Opening Ceremony of the academic year and the Opening Carnival will be celebrated on Monday, 5 September. According to the Rector's decision, teaching has not been organised in the afternoon of the opening day in previous years, and this will probably be the case this year, too. Therefore everyone at the University can participate both in the Opening Ceremony at 12noon and the Opening Carnival from 2pm to 6pm if they wish to do so. The more specific programme of the opening day will be published on the HYY website at the end of August.

The organisations within HYY and university units can introduce their activities for thousands of students during the Opening Carnival. This is an excellent opportunity to gain new enthusiastic members for organisational activities! You can register with the following form by 12noon on 8 August:


Do you want to host a checkpoint in the Freshman Adventure?

To sign up to host a checkpoint, fill in the form at Please sign up by 31 July.

We want to exhibit the diversity of HYY’s organisations and by giving our Instagram account to you for a week! The account has a thousand followers, so this is a great opportunity for you to reach new people, gain new followers and make yourselves known!
