University of the Arts Helsinki is developing its spaces and the Academy of Fine Arts is moving to the new premises next to the Theatre Academy. The newly forming Sörnäinen campus will also have a new Sörnäinen Campus Library, where the emphasis is in Fine Arts and Performing Arts.
The new campus library will have working spaces, and places to relax and unwind oneself among collections related to arts. The new campus library will open in autumn 2021.
KuvA and TeaK libraries close for summer
The library units in Theatre Academy in Haapaniemenkatu and in the Academy of Fine Arts in Elimäenkatu will be closed from April 30, 2021, due to the moving. Please borrow all the material you need in advance. During the summer 2021 the collections will be merged, and the library space in Haapaniemenkatu will be furnished in the advent of opening in autumn 2021.
In April the libraries are accessible only to Uniarts Helsinki students, researchers and staff members with a personal access key on a self-service basis. Please see the library website for up-to-date information on our opening hours.
Academy of Fine Arts and Theatre Academy libraries’ loan due date is October 1, 2021. During the closure, the Sibelius Academy library is open with restrictions that are subject to change due to the corona virus situation. The summer opening hours at Sibelius Academy library will be communicated in May.
