HOW TO GET THERE
Welcome to Dipoli! Dipoli is Aalto University’s main building. During decades the building has seen a lot: art, science, innovations and true student culture, like parties and music events – and now it’s hosting Europe’s biggest hackathon (again!). We have written a longer piece on the history of the building, which you can read here!

BUSES FROM FINLAND AND RUSSIA

The doors to the venue and registration open at 16.00. The registration happens at the tent right outside the actual venue.
You will also be able to register throughout the day on Friday already at Terminal 2 in Helsinki Airport.
The venue does not have designated parking. There are some parking areas around Otaniemi but it’s more reliable to arrive by using public transport.

Helsinki metropolitan area public transportation is arranged by HSL. You can find schedules, route information and more from https://www.hsl.fi/en. The two best alternatives for journey planning are https://reittiopas.hsl.fi/ and Google Maps.
