The Old Student House

The Old Student House

Event house in the heart of Helsinki

The breathtakingly beautiful banqueting hall and the magnificent music hall are great settings for events such as seminars, spectacular gala dinners and trade fairs. You can also hold your event in one of four adaptable, unique meeting rooms. The house can host events for more than a thousand guests. 

Our high-end restaurant cuisine combined with great facilities will guarantee your event to be a success, and our central location at Mannerheimintie 3, close to many city centre hotels, makes access to the premises easy for your guests. 

Opened more than 140 years ago, the Old Student House (usually just ‘Vanha’ in Finnish, meaning ‘the old one’) is perhaps the most legendary events venue in Helsinki.
