The Student Union Houses

Kåren in Åbo

Kåren is not only the shorter Swedish name for the Student Union of Åbo Akademi University, it is also the name of the Student Union’s own building that is located at Tavastgatan 22.

Many student parties are organised in the Kåren building, either in the great hall or in the pub on the ground floor. If you have any questions concerning your stay in Finland, you can always turn to the Student Union offices. The Student Union office in Åbo is located in the Student Union’s own building Kåren on the second floor and is open weekdays noon 12 to 3 pm.

Havtornen in Vasa

The students at Åbo Akademi Vasa have a unique Student Union house, Havtornen “The sea towers”. Havtornen was officially inaugurated in 2007.

Havtornen is a lively meeting point where you can find conference rooms, general facilities, a sauna, a kitchen and even a large terrace facing the sea. All students and associations at Åbo Akademi University have the right to use Havtornen free of charge, and this possibility is often used by our active student associations who use the building for all kinds of parties and get-togethers. The Student Union Office is located in Havtornen and is open Monday through Thursday, noon 12 to 3 pm.
