Evo campus

Come and study at Evo’s unique forest campus!

Our unique forest campus offers students high quality forest studies in Finnish and English, both in the classroom and in the forest.

The Evo campus is a centre for forest education and research with a history dating back to 1862. Its long tradition provides a solid foundation for an education that looks to the future and meets the changing needs of the forestry sector.

Our main learning environment is the approximately 1 800 hectares of observation forest surrounding the campus, which allows for a natural transition from classroom teaching directly into the field. In addition, Evo campus has a close-knit and welcoming community where fellow students and staff are sure to get to know each other.

Among other things, the campus has a wonderful lakeside sauna, which is heated by students every night at best. The campus and the educational forest are part of the national Evo hiking area. So nature is a real presence throughout the campus and a wide range of hiking trails of different lengths are just around the corner. The nearest services, such as a grocery store, can be found a few tens of kilometres away.

The campus is also home to the Häme Vocational Institute’s forestry education, which contributes to the education in forestry. In addition, there has been a lot of cooperation with the Finnish Natural Resources Institute (LUKE) over the years. LUKE is an important research partner for Evo and students are constantly working on theses for the evolving forestry sector.
