Students, please participate in the idea contest New Forms in Student Living and create new ideas for housing! The contest is looking for user-oriented visions on future student housing that is communal, diverse, environmentally-friendly and comfortable.

In addition to new concepts,the contest is looking for solutions to convert a building’s function to student housing. The contest entries have two specific locations: a new location in Aalto Village in Espoo and a building used by Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki. Entries are evaluated by the panel consisting of representatives from student organisations and various specialists. The top three teams will be awarded!
