By bus to Linnanmaa

The easiest way to get to the Linnanmaa campus is by bus. You can take buses number 1, 2, 3 and 8 from center to Linnanmaa. The journey takes around 15–20 minutes. Convenient bus stops in downtown are Toripakka, Kaupungintalo and Pokkitörmä. We recommend that you exit the bus at the bus stop Yliopisto P  when heading to the university.

If travelling from Nallikari to the university, you must first take bus number 15 and change buses in Tuira on Merikoskenkatu. Cross the street for buses to the university (bus stop: Merikoskenkatu P2).

You can see the bus connections between the center and university here.
