Forssa campus

Our Forssa campus is located in an 1850s cotton mill, which has been renovated with respect for cultural history.

The vibrant campus area is close to the city centre and other services. The campus park area, the Loimijoki River and the old red brick buildings combine to create one of the most beautiful campus areas in Finland.

The study facilities are bright and comfortable. The campus offers teaching and independent study facilities of different sizes. Social and health care students have access to a variety of simulation classes, which aim to create the most authentic learning environment possible, for example in a hospital or home care setting.

In addition to the Häme University of Applied Sciences, the spinning mill area has become a centre for culture and education and is home to the Wahren School, Pikku-Wahren kindergarten, Axelin Eskari, a fine arts school, a music school, museums, businesses, a library, a bowling alley and a restaurant. In Forssa, campus cooperation is carried out with the Forssa Vocational Institute and the upper secondary school.
