Students at Evo campus


Evo Campus

  • Around 230 HAMK students
  • 17 staff members

Evo campus is the heart of forestry education and has been established already the year 1862. The campus’ long traditions give a solid base for education aiming to answer the changing needs of the forestry field in the future. In forestry education, practical learning methods and utilization of modern techniques are highlighted. The most important learning environment is a demonstration forest of 1800 hectars which surrounds the campus and enables natural transitions from the indoor classrooms to the outdoors, where students get to put theory into practice. Häme Vocational Institute operates on the same campus and brings not only more students to the campus but livelihood and resources to the university-level education as well.

At the center of the campus area you can find Evokeskus, the main building built in 2010. In addition to the classrooms and other study environments, there are café-services, student restaurant and a library in the main building.

Evo Campus is situated in the village of Iso-Evo in the Lammi area. Lammi is a rural district and part of the city of Hämeenlinna. It takes about 40 minutes by car from Hämeenlinna to Evo.
