Helsinki campus

Diak Helsinki is located in the regenerated Kalasatama district of Helsinki, at the campus centre of Arabianranta, northern Kalasatama and Kumpula, close to the amenities of the Arabia shopping centre.

The building was completed in 2015 and designed with environmental values and accessibility in mind.

The design was inspired by the themes of digital openness, user focus, internationalism and community.

Our Helsinki campus is home to a total of 1,700 students studying in our social services, health and interpreting programmes.

Our lecture halls feature recording technologies and solutions which enable us to offer remote access to our lectures from all our campuses across Finland. Student services, library and information services and the student union’s facilities are located centrally on the second floor.
