Come celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Student union of the University of Helsinki!

The HYY150 Anniversary year culminates in an unforgettable Anniversary weekend, starting with a magnificent dinner party at the Old Student House on Saturday 24 November 2018.

To celebrate the Anniversary year, the entire building is filled up with an academic dinner party with its songs and a memorable programme. The Anniversary begins with a cocktail event at 4.00 pm. The Anniversary dinner is served in the Great Hall, Balcony, Music Hall and Gallery of the Old Student House at 5.30 pm.

After the dinner party and the Anniversary Ball, the party continues at The Circus in the form of the HYY150 Birthday Party – the most legendary party of the Anniversary year which you simply cannot miss. The Birthday Party is open to all HYY’s members and starts at 10 pm. Ticket sales open in October, stay tuned!

The Anniversary weekend is crowned by the epic, unbridled and delightful sillis on Sunday 25 November. You can look forward to good food, music, completely novel programme and, of course, glorious company.
