Summer School


In the summer season, Finns flock to the countryside for quietness and relaxation at cosy hideouts.

Accommodation during the Summer School

There is a large variety of accommodation possibilities available in Jyväskylä. Limited number of rooms are reserved for summer school students in the following hotels. If your research group or some other sponsor is paying your accommodation costs please consider if it’s possible for you to stay in hotel Alba or some other hotel. Hotel Alba is situated next door from the Mattilanniemi and Ylistönrinne campuses. The other hotels are situated in the city centre within 15-30 minute walking distance from the venue.

For alternative accommodation the Jyväskylä Regional Tourist Information website is a good place to start looking. It also pays to consider traditional Finnish summer cottage-style accommodation. If you prefer to stay somewhere else during the Summer School than the options above, you have to arrange the accommodation yourself. Please note that in this case the Secretary of the Summer School will not be responsible for making an accommodation reservation for you. Please reserve the hotel room by contacting the hotel directly.
