Metropolia will in the future operate from four campuses instead of the current 20 premises. The campuses are situated in Arabianranta in Helsinki, Leppävaara in Espoo and Myyrmäki in Vantaa, 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 spring of 2015. The first students, lecturers and staff should be able to move in to Myllypuro in the autumn of 2017.
User-Centered Campus Design project (Käyttäjälähtöinen hybridikampus in Finnish) brings the view-points of students, staff, local residents and entrepreneurs into the discussion when planning a new Myllypuro campus and developing the campus in Arabianranta. The project gathers experience based information from the stakeholder groups and turns them into service and spatial ideas to be implemented on the campuses.
