Office hours


The main officers (päävirkailijat) – Director, Secretary and Treasurer – and the Membership Officer have regular office hours at the office in the 3rd floor of the house during the semesters (see the calendar below).

Apartment-related questions? Contact HYS

No one of the four abovementioned officers deals with apartment-related matters in any way.

Summer and winter vacations

There are no regular office hours from late-May to late-August or the winter vacation of the University (approximately mid-December to mid-January). In case you are unable to visit the office during the hours (or your matter is urgent and it is summer or winter vacation), you can contact the officers and, possibly, agree on a visit: if you need to register, please contact the Membership Officer, and on other matters, contact the main officers.
