Alina Hall can be booked during the booking rounds organised twice a year. There are two booking rounds and during both rounds the organisation can apply for one date. The organisation which makes the booking must have participated in the user training for Alina Hall during the year 2014 or participate in a separately organised additional training event. If the organisation does not participate in the training, the booking will be cancelled.
Bookings are made through an electronic form.
Advance booking period is 25 March - 31 March. During this period, the organisation can book festive premises in advance before the beginning of the actual booking rounds if the organisation has a well-justified reason (such as the anniversary) to apply for a certain date. Advance bookings
are submitted by email to the Chair of the Committee for Organisational Affairs Aarni Suvitie to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advance booking must include:
- name of the organisation that makes the booking
- contact person and telephone number
- event for which you want to book the premises and the nature of the event
Decisions on advance bookings are made by the Committee for Organisational Affairs together with the board member in charge of organisations and the organisation specialist 5pm - 7pm on 1 Apr.
Actual booking rounds
Bookings are made during two rounds. On both rounds, the organisation can apply for one date. Organisations should check the vacant dates from the Student Union's electronic calendar at http://hyy.helsinki.fi/varaukset/. Booking rounds are organised on 3.4.-7.4. and 10.4.-14.4. The arrival time of the booking does not affect the status of booking but incomplete or late applications will not be processed. If there are overlapping reservations, the organisations in question are offered other available dates through mediation. If the agreement is not reached, the matter is settled by drawing lots. The chair of the Committee for Organisational Affairs together with the Committee is responsible for the mediation and drawing lots.
NB! The contact person designated by the organisation should be reachable by telephone after the end of booking rounds when bookings are processed. In this way, the mediation of overlapping bookings is possible. Organisations should also consider alternative dates in case the original booking overlaps with an event of another organisation. Please make sure before each booking that the requested date is available.
Booking period: 12 noon on 3 Apr – 10pm on 7 Apr. Bookings are made through the form

Prioritising of bookings
Advance booking particularly concerns anniversaries, the after parties of anniversaries and events with a specific date. During the regular booking rounds, the greatest emphasis has traditionally been on the organisations' cooperation events. Prioritising is decided by the Committee for Organisational Affairs together with the board member in charge of organisations and the organisation specialist.
