Saunas to reopen on 1st of March

On 1 Mar 2023, saunas in the rental facilities of Aalto University Student Union will reopen and the residents’ sauna reservations will continue as usual. Previously, AYY decided to close the saunas for energy saving and cost reasons from 1 Jan to 31 Mar 2023. The previous decision was based on the uncertainty about the adequacy of electricity during a potentially cold and windless winter. In addition, a cold winter could have significantly increased the upkeep costs. 

However, early winter 2023 was mild, and the worst scenarios of the increase in electricity prices did not happen, which is why AYY decided to review the decision. Saunas in rental facilities will reopen and the residents’ sauna reservations will be available as usual from 1 Mar 2023 onwards.

The change does not affect the current reservations and prices, and those who have booked rental facilities for March can use the saunas if they wish. The residents can start to use their previously made sauna reservations, or cancel their reservation for March.

The reeds are buzzing… Are YOU ready??

The Munajahti of Hankkijat is coming back on March 29, and it’s

bigger than ever! The mythological pike chicken has once again laid her

orange eggs in the warmth of pubs and bars near the orange-colored tracks

The location of the eggs can only be found out by solving mysterious clues,

so get your cognition in order! Waiting at the checkpoints are the ‍Pike

Chicken Envoys‍, who will offer a hint to the next checkpoint,

although only after the team has completed a task ever so whimsical.

Munajahti is also a team sport where Wonderful Prizes are awarded. So

  1. a) the fastest and b) most inventive team gets a chest full of glittering

gold… or at least something equally great!

The event includes, of course, a good old ‍Afterparty @OK20

downstairs.‍ Otakaari 20 also serves as the starting point (the first

clue can be fetched between 16-18) and as the finish line.


Ticket sales (6€ / 8€ with overall badge) start on 6.3. at 12:00 at So remember to stalk like a preying

hawk, or the ticket may be out of your reach… Attention! All team members

must buy their own ticket!
