Metropolia campus to reshape Myllypuro

The Myllypuro campus of Metropolia, Finland’s largest university of applied sciences, is under construction to be completed in 2018–2019.

The foundation stone of the Myllypuro campus of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences was laid in the autumn of 2016. Currently the foundations of a cover for the metro deck are under construction – part of the campus is built on metro train tracks. The work is largely carried out at nighttime in order not to disrupt metro service.

The frame of the campus building is under construction. The first section of the building will be completed in the summer of 2018 and the whole campus in August 2019.

The campus is built for Metropolia by the City of Helsinki. The project is divided into two separate contracts comprising construction and building technology. The main contractor is YIT Rakennus Oy.

Campus to increase Myllypuro occupants by half

The Myllypuro campus will house Metropolia’s operations in the fields of social services, health care, construction and real estate, as well as university management and centralized services. All in all, the campus will bring to Myllypuro 6,000 students and 500 employees. Myllypuro is today home to 12,000 people.

The campus will create an open network of learning in the area.
