Vanha ylioppilastalo – the Old Student House

The ”nightspot” is an after hours venue where congress attendees can meet and mingle. It houses a pub, café, and an event hall with a stage. In Helsinki, the “nightspot” location will be at the Vanha Ylioppilastalo—the Old Student House. It is a historical building built and owned by the student union of the Helsinki University, but managed by a separate entity. It is well known within Finland and it is a very popular meeting place and event venue.

During the week of the IFLA WLIC 2012, Vanha will be open to the general public, but Congress attendees will be especially welcomed there. It will be open each day of the Congress except for Monday, 13 August, when it will host a private event. The venue will host various events that might be arranged by the National Committee. Further information can be obtained at the Information Desk in the registration area.
