The journey of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences to move its operations from 20 locations to four campuses will advance significantly after the turn of the year.
The second phase of Metropolia’s new campus in Helsinki’s Myllypuro, completed in the autumn of 2019, will open doors to students and to the public after Epiphany, that is, after 6 January 2020. Metropolia will close operations at three locations in Helsinki on 19 December, moving out of locations at Mannerheimintie 172, Ruoholahdentori 6 and Vanha viertotie 23.
The ongoing expansion of Metropolia’s Arabia Campus proceeds according to plan. A new building for music studies at Hämeentie 135 D will be completed at the end of 2020. Other new spaces for Metropolia at this block, for example, for the extended reality meeting place Helsinki XR Center, will be completed in 2021.
The operations at Metropolia’s Mannerheimintie and Vanha viertotie locations to be closed will be moving to the Myllypuro Campus from January onwards. Thus the university of applied science’s all social services and healthcare studies, comprising the most extensive offering of these studies in Finland, will be located at the Myllypuro Campus. In addition to social services and healthcare studies, the Myllypuro Campus, called the Campus for Builders of Well-being, will be home to Metropolia’s real estate and construction–related studies as well as all innovation activities.
