6. Apply for furniture purchasing grant!

HYY supports furniture puchases for organisational premises. The grant is intended for organisations which primarily operate in HYY premises and the grant is mainly directed to purchasing tables, chairs, cupboards with locks and other decoration supplies. This grant has no deadline. It can be freely applied for through the Secretary for Organisational Affairs when necessary.

The aim is that furniture would increase the cosiness of organisational premises and the willingness of organisations to look after their premises even better.

Applications which specify the need for furniture and the formalities connected with purchases can be sent by e-mail to jarjestosihteeri(at)hyy.fi or by mail to Helsingin yliopiston ylioppilaskunta, PL 1099, 00101 HELSINKI.


7. Arrange a HYY150 X Organisation party and win a sauna night at Sivistys!


 
The HYY150 Anniversary year culminates in the unforgettable Anniversary weekend on the 24th and 25th of November. We encourage every organisation to join us for the most epic weekend of all time. Celebrations begin on Saturday with the dinner party at the Old Student House, continue throughout the night with the HYY150 Birthday Party at the Circus and conclude on Sunday with the HYY150 Sillis, where students and alumni celebrate together in a relaxed atmosphere.
 
Each HYY member and organisation within HYY should be able to take part in this great celebration, but unfortunately there is only a limited number of seats at the dinner party. By organizing a personalized HYY150 X Organization party for members of your organisation, we can all celebrate our 150-year-old student union everywhere around Helsinki simultaneously. Celebrations do not have to be formal – they can be whatever suits you best: a cocktail party, sitsit or a casual get-together while playing some Anniversary bingo? You decide!
 
You will also be able to follow a livestream of the Old Student House anniversary celebrations and attend the party from wherever you celebrate. Short video greetings from all the different celebrations will be shown at the Old Student House in true Eurovision Song Contest fashion. Each of the HYY150 X Organisation parties will be placed on a map so we can all follow how, where and by whom HYY’s anniversary is being celebrated. Sign up your organisation’s party here: https://www.lyyti.in/HYY150XOrganisations

By arranging a HYY150 X Organisation party your organization participates in a raffle and has a chance of winning a sauna night at Sivistys in spring 2019.
 
After the HYY150 celebrations, the evening continues with the sparkling HYY150 Birthday Party at the Circus. Organisations can buy more affordable ticket packages for the Birthday Party on the 17th of October and onwards.
