The Communications Department

The communications department at Arcada handles e.g. internal and external communications, marketing of the UAS, student recruitment and graphic planning and design. An important part of the work consists of maintaining and developing Arcada’s identity, image and profile – Arcada’s brand.

Since student recruitment is one of our most important tasks we handle recruitment campaigns, fairs and study visits. We also update Arcada’s web pages and social media with both text and pictures. Many of Arcada’s news are written by us at the communications department. Besides the fairs we also organize Arcada’s events, such as the opening of the academic year, the graduation ceremonies, My Future Work and alumni events. We also develop web services such as Start, our external web page and the blog platform Inside Arcada.

We also handle contacts and relationships with alumni, media and other interested parties.

The Arcada building is a popular place for companies and organizations to arrange conferences, seminars and meetings. This is handled by Arcada Congress and Event, which is a part of the campus team.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact our info desk on the second floor. The communications department can be found in F3.

Social media channels maintained by the communications department


Arcada’s official Facebook page is followed by more than 7 000 people. We consider the page to be an extension of our campus, and we inform about upcoming events and write news that are of interest to both current students and potential applicants.

At Arcada’s own blog portal Inside Arcada you find more than 30 blogs written by students, co-workers and alumni. All of our live-streamed events are presented here. Remember that you are more than welcome to start a blog about your studies and work practice (home or abroad) or interesting projects that you are part of! Contact us via and we will help you get started.


The idea behind Arcada’s Twitter account is to serve media, decision makers and co-operation partners with the latest news, press releases and other current information.


Our pictures at Instagram give our followers a peak behind the curtains at Arcada.


At Arcada’s LinkedIn page we open our doors towards working life, co-operation partners and organizations, our alumni and future lecturers and colleagues. Here we publish the latest news for external groups interested in Arcada on a professional level.

Arcada's LinkedIn page


Arcada has its own YouTube channel where e.g. our recruitment and marketing videos are published.
