3. Aalto, studies and work opportunities

Survey about the university’s learning environment

Share your opinion on the university environment, affect the development of your learning environment and win a great prize!

Our annual campus survey measures how well the current university environment supports your learning at Aalto University. By taking the survey, you can contribute to the wellbeing and comfort of all students on the campus. Based on previous years’ results, we have developed and modified the university’s indoor and outdoor facilities to better meet the users’ needs and have diversified the range of services available on the campus. Most recently, we have improved the outdoor areas on the campus.

Your responses will be processed anonymously. The survey takes around 5-8 minutes to complete.

Among the respondents from the school with the highest response rate, we will raffle five one-week lunch packages (each worth around EUR 60) for the campus, so encourage your friends to take the survey as well! If the response rate to the student survey exceeds 10%, we will also raffle other great prizes.

Survey link: https://aufs22.leesmanindex.co.uk/en/c43Q2WuksgnaVsBt

The survey is open until 9 November 2022. The survey can be taken in Finnish and English.
