You can now book cubes for group work and media production

On the Linnanmaa and Kontinkangas campuses, several workspaces containing the latest technology have been opened for the use of students and staff. The cubes, located in the lobbies and hallways, are intended for group work and media production. In the premises, it is possible to implement high-quality media content and utilize them in multi-location working and studying.

On the Linnanmaa campus, the cubes are yellow and placed at three points between the central hall and the main building. The media production cube is called Media Cubica and the group work cubes are called Civitas and Commercium.

On the Kontinkangas campus, a group work cube Cogitare and a media production cube Media Digital can be found in the main lobby, and the color is grey.

The cubes are for 5 people at a time. Students and staff can book cubes through the Outlook calendar of O365 service.

The facilities transform into many and support multi-location work

The cubes are soundproofed, and it is possible to frost the glass walls to make working in cubes more private.

The technology of group work cubes enables multi-media work, and the premises have high-quality audio and video. The facilities are well suited for research and teaching, as the AV technology is compatible with hybrid lecture halls, group teaching facilities and research infrastructure.

In the media production cubes, it is possible to produce high-quality digital content, such as instructional videos, podcasts and digital work related to studies. The facilities are equipped with video and podcast mixers that allow the student and staff to produce various audio, video or hybrid productions. The premises have equipment for three participants, which makes different interviews and group assignments easy to implement in a soundproof media cube.

The cubes are a joint demo project between the University of Oulu and the University Properties of Finland (SYK), carried out in collaboration between the Faculty of Education and Psychology, the Department of Architecture of the Faculty of Technology and Campus Services.
