Towards a four-campus Metropolia


Metropolia will in the future operate from four campuses instead of the current 20 premises. The campuses are situated in Leppävaara in Espoo, Myyrmäki in Vantaa and Arabianranta in Helsinki, with a new campus to be built in Myllypuro in Helsinki. The campuses are concentrations of many fields of expertise, and networks of open learning that radiate new vigour around them.

The Myllypuro campus will be built partly over the metro, next to the Myllypuro shopping centre and Liikuntamylly gym, with excellent connections. Planning is in progress for the design on the massive campus that will cater for the needs of some 6,000 students. The City of Helsinki will decide on the implementation in the autumn of 2014.

The first students, lecturers and staff should be able to move in to Myllypuro in the autumn of 2017. The alteration and repairs of the Myyrmäki campus should be completed in the same timetable.

As part of the development of the Leppävaara campus, we are going ahead with the idea of a double campus in cooperation with Laurea University of Applied Sciences. Work is in progress in Leppävaara to survey what kind of premises are required in order to plan the alteration work. The campus group is also looking into alternatives for the Arabianranta campus solutions.

"Metropolia will in the next few years turn into four centres of learning and development that will develop the urban culture. This is something in which we want to the local stakeholders and resident to participate, too," says Seija Ristimäki, project manager of the Metropolia campus project.
