Skinnarila, the neighbour of the campus area, is known as a lush and lively district. All basic amenities as well as the campus area are just a short walking distance away. Would you like to take an evening walk at the shore of beautiful Lake Saimaa? You can do.
It’s a short walking or cycling distance from Skinnarila to the educational institutes and campus area, which is also served by the city’s best public transport connections. You can take a bus to the city centre in just 10-15 minutes.
Apart from the beach and stunning outdoor routes, there is a padel field, mini stadium and diverse outdoor gym equipment at the local Tervahaudanpuisto leisure park in Skinnarila – available to everyone free of charge.
