For who?
UCS student hub is a co-working space for university students and researchers studying in Tampere University, the University of Helsinki, the University of Vaasa or the University of the Arts Helsinki.

What is UCS?
UCS stands for University Consortium of Seinäjoki. The University Consortium of Seinäjoki is a networked community of 80 multidisciplinary experts from four Finnish universities. The University Consortium is formed by Tampere University, the University of Helsinki, the University of Vaasa and the University of the Arts Helsinki. Our partners include the University of Turku, the Natural Resources Institute Finland, the Migration Institute of Finland, and the University Association of South Ostrobothnia (Epky).  

For the first 20 years the collaboration has been focused on research and development activities relevant to the region, continuous learning services, artistic activities, and the promotion of our societal impact. However, the autumn 2023 is the beginning of a new era as we are developing the degree program study possibilities at your Seinäjoki Campus, including the study facilities such as the hub.
