Have a peaceful, merry Christmas!

HYY’s office is closed from 21 December to 1 January. HYY thanks all organisations for the past year and wishes all organisational actors a peaceful and carefree Christmas!

Organisations operating in HYY’s premises: please remember to redirect or cancel any subscriptions to papers you may have for the duration of the Christmas holidays. Please also make sure that all windows are closed and waste containers emptied.


Save the dates: Seminar for Chairpersons I on 29 January and Tuning Day on 22 February

Year 2018 kicks off with the Seminar for Chairpersons organised by the Student Organisations Committee on Monday 29 January. The seminar offers a generous dose of training and meeting your fellow chairpersons. The programme and schedule will be published later, but now is the time to mark the date on your calendar!

When the chairpersons have been trained for their tasks, it is time to offer support and knowledge to all organisational actors and anyone else interested in the contents of the Tuning Day programme! The Tuning Day is a training day for HYY’s organisational actors, featuring training, inspiration and discussions on themes that interest organisational actors. The Tuning Day is held on 22 February in the Main Building of the University. The programme includes at least training sessions for treasurers, persons in charge of equality, event organisers and communicators.


Wish international students welcome!
