Weekly Digest 15/2020




Dear friends,

Within a short period of time, our entire daily lives have changed completely, and our everyday student life has turned upside down. Our studies with high attendance have suddenly turned into remote learning, and we shouldn’t go anywhere unless it’s necessary. The events of the Guild have been canceled or postponed, which is sad, but on a scale of the current situation very small.

The most important thing right now is to take care of ourselves and therefore of our loved ones and other people.



🔴 An important website: 



 Library: closed, but you can get books by booking it from Finna and then getting it from the lobby!

 Aalto Takeout: closed, but the necessary tools for studying can be borrowed (contact your course teacher)!

 Study and career counselling psychologists, student counselors and Aalto chaplains: can be reached by telephone and possibly remotely.

 KELA and student financial aid: If it has not been possible to study, payment of the student financial aid can still continue even if the study progress has not been sufficient. The maximum period of payment of student financial aid can also be extended.

 YTHS (Student health services): If you do not have corona symptoms, you can go to the appointment for other reasons. Remote appointment is also possible 💛 Cancellation: 1h before at the latest, otherwise you will have to pay cancellation fee!

 UniSport: closed but different remote trainings are provided.

 Student Service Points: Closed, but can be contacted by mail or phone.

 Remote connections, applications and IT services: help for VDI and VPN, remote access to programs, Adobe applications free for students until 31.5.

Our goal is to provoke conversations about students’ mental health and to invite everyone to support the cause of mental wellbeing. In 2020, the campaign theme is friendship. With the #letsdosomething campaign, we want to highlight the significance of friendship to students’ wellbeing and mental health.
