Aalto chaplains, Fridays 12.30-15
Studying is a lot to handle and of course there is more to life than just studying. If you need someone to talk to, you can turn to the Aalto chaplains. The cornerstones of our work are being present, listening and keeping all student discussions strictly confidential. We want to promote our students’ holistic wellbeing. Why not come meet us and hear more about booking a counselling appointment as well as the online chat service, discussion groups, brunches and other activities we have to offer.
AYY, Friday 9-11.30
The Aalto University Student Union AYY: You can talk to the AYY harassment contact person if you have experienced harassment or misconduct. The appointments are confidential and no measures will be taken without your consent, but if you wish, the harassment contact persons can help you sort out the situation. In addition to individual students, the harassment contact persons provide guidance to student organisations.
