Renting facilities

Outside customers can book University lecture rooms, auditoriums, seminar rooms, and lobby and corridor spaces at the University of Oulu.

The University’s own needs have priority in the use of facilities and rooms

Renting rooms and facilities to outside parties must not hinder the University’s own activities. When facilities are rented to outside parties, the brochures and advertisements related to the event must indicate the party arranging the event.

The facilities available for rent

There are rooms in the following properties: Linnanmaa, Linnanmaa main building, primary school of the Oulu University Teacher Training School, Faculty of Medicine. For more information on facilities and prices, please contact

Reservations and invoicing

Reservations are to be done by e-mail:

When booking facilities, a responsible person must be named who will ensure that the doors are locked and the facility is used appropriately. The reservations are invoiced monthly, based on use. Reservations made by outside parties are always confirmed in writing.


Reservations may be cancelled free of charge if the cancellation is made in writing at least one week before the start of the reservation. The full fee is charged for cancellations made less than a week before the start of the reservation.

Attendant services in connection with room reservations

Attendant services are provided by the University’s own attendant, whose services are charged separately. The parties hiring facilities may also use their own staff, for example for cloakroom services or as guides. The use of any own staff must be agreed on separately when making the reservation.

AV and other equipment

Use of the AV equipment already present in the rooms is included in the rent. If additional equipment has to be brought to the rooms or facilities, a price will be charged according to a separate price list.

Other costs

Other additional costs (e.g. additional cleaning costs) are charged separately.
