Arcada opens campus gradually 

According to the government’s decision, the universities will open their campuses starting 14.5. Arcada will carry out the re-opening in phases and the spring semester will be completed online. The staff will follow the government’s recommendation of continued remote working. Please read the guidelines for each phase below. 

The planned phases and guidelines will be adjusted if necessary if new national restrictions or instructions are given. Compass Group that runs our student restaurant will not open until mid August. 

Arcada’s remote support and services

Although the campus is closed, support and services for Arcada's students are offered remotely. Please feel free to contact them, either if you need any support with your studies or classes, if you have any practical problems or if you are experiencing e.g. anxiety or stress. Below is a summary of all the services offered by Arcada remotely. Don't know who to contact? Please contact communications@arcada.fi and we will guide you to the right service.

Green Office was audited and granted a new certificate

Today, Arcada was audited and we passed the audit. We received a renewed certificate and can continue to work for a better environment and sustainable development. We will get a report later that shows our strengths and what still could be improved.

Have a nice summer and hope to see you in August!
