1. 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.

6. The maximum amount of reservations to HYY's meeting rooms has changed


HYY's Financial Committee has decided that the maximum number of bookings to HYY's meeting rooms is from now on 3 at a time. This change is due to the fact that HYY gave up 2 of its meeting rooms at the end of April. By setting a lower maximum, HYY wishes to ensure that all organisations will be able to use the meetings rooms when needed.
