How do I get to Joensuu?

See Getting there -website of the city of Joensuu

From Helsinki you can get to Joensuu by an airplane. The flight takes about an hour.

Some airlines:

By train your journey from Helsinki to Joensuu takes about five hours.

There is also a bus connection from Helsinki to Joensuu. This is perhaps not the most comfortable way to travel such a long distance, but if you have an early morning flight to catch on your way back, it might come out handy. Link to the timetables and fares at Matkahuolto's website.

Also other major cities like Tampere and Turku have good train and bus connections to Joensuu. If you fly with Ryanair you might like to come via Tampere and continue from there by train. Ryanair also has flights to Lappeenranta, which lies closer to Joensuu than Helsinki but is on the same train route.

How do I get to the University Campus or to my accommodation once I have reached Joensuu?

The blue pins on the map mark the Joensuu airport, the Joensuu railway station and bus station. The light pink area is the University campus and the red pins are different university buildings.


The bus station and the railway station are on the right hand side of the river. First, walk across the bridge. Then follow the street called Siltakatu until it takes a slight turn to the right. The University is right there on your left! The first University building you see is called Aurora. Our meetings will be held in a building called Agora, in the center of the campus area (see the dark red pin on the map).
