HYY 149th Anniversary


We have the great pleasure of inviting You to celebrate the 149-year-old Student Union of the University of Helsinki!

The Anniversary is held on Thursday 23 November 2017 on the impressive premises of the Crowne Plaza hotel!

The Anniversary begins with a cocktail event at 4.30 pm, and the Anniversary dinner is served at 5.45 pm. The stunning dinner party culminates in an academic Anniversary Ball.

After the dinner party and the Anniversary Ball, an atmospheric birthday party that is open to everyone begins. Starting at 10.30 pm, you can look forward to superb music, an epic programme and, first and foremost, a spectacular party you simply cannot miss. Ticket sales for the birthday party start at the beginning of November.

At the birthday party you can look forward to a legendary programme and mind-blowing atmosphere that fills up the party space and goes beyond disciplinary borders. Epic party band Spruce and We Love Helsinki dj's will be getting people to dance. Besides some bubbly drinks with student-friendly prices, we will also have a surprise drink on offer, launched during the party. What could it be? Come and find out and be among the first to taste the anniversary drink!
