The HAMK Hämeenlinna Library is open to everyone! We serve HAMK students and staff on all seven campuses, and other customers mainly in the library of the Hämeenlinna University School Centre.

In the campus libraries of Evo, Forssa, Lepaa, Mustiala, Riihimäki and Valkeakoski, we serve via Libgo video equipment and we are present at varying times depending on the needs of each campus.

All materials of the HAMK library can be found in HAMK Finna. Our collection includes both print and electronic material. Our collection focuses on the fields taught and studied at HAMK. Our collection is also available outside HAMK via remote access.


Welcome to Nipsula’s open early childhood education! Nipsula is located at the Hämeenlinna University Centre, in connection with the School of Wellbeing. We offer twice-weekly open early childhood education activities for children of early childhood education age and their families.

Nipsula is a meeting place for caregivers of children of early childhood education age, and at the same time it serves as a learning environment for HAMK’s social and health students.

The activities are led by Johanna Nieminen, Social Services Coordinator. Families can participate with a service voucher, and families from neighbouring municipalities can join in on a self-pay basis.

Open: Mondays and Thursdays 9-12 

Location: the Hämeenlinna University Centre, Vankanlähde 9, S-building, 1st floor. Entrance through the inner courtyard.

SIMHE guidance

We offer personalised and free career guidance in Finnish and in English to immigrants living in Finland who already have a university degree. We also serve immigrants who are eligible to apply to Finnish higher education institutions.

In SIMHE (Supporting Immigrants in Higher Education), you can consider your options and strengths in different fields with a mentor. In a mentoring meeting, we can discuss your situation further in confidence. The mentoring session lasts 30 minutes and takes place in Teams or on-site at HAMK’s Visamäki campus in Hämeenlinna.

Rahtijärvi cabin at Evo

Our Evo campus offers idyllic accommodation in the setting of Finland’s oldest forest school.

The Rahtijärvi hut is the last clay hut in the area, where the lumberjacks and drivers who collected war reparations lived. Today it is a lodging and meeting building located 3.5 km north of the Evo campus on the shores of Lake Rahtijärvi. The complex includes the main building Ukkoherra, the accommodation building Jätkälä, a wood-fired lakeside sauna for 8-10 people in Majajoki, an electrically heated sauna for 3-4 people in Jätkälä and a large courtyard with fireplaces. The two buildings of the cabin accommodate 26 people.

The location is quiet and there is a road to the house.
