The TOKYO Association is a student organization which aims to bring together students of Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architechture as well as its former students, the alumni. TOKYO supports the goals of the students by taking an active role in public discourse in and out of Aalto University.
The association carries on the traditions of the former Student Union TOKYO which was founded to serve the same purpose in 1961. Both organizations have and continue to organize all kinds of events and parties. More information of TOKYOs history can be found here.
The membership of the association costs 8€ per year for all students of Aalto ARTS (alumni’s of TaiK/ARTS 15 €). Upon joining you will immediately gain access to all of TOKYO’s membership benefits including the design calendar, which is published annually. You can join and pay the membership fee at the service point (with cash or a card) or online when you register your attendance for the academic year in WebOodi (this does not apply to all international students). You can also join electronically in here, but then remember to pay the membership fee to TOKYOs account and inform the executive manager with your receipt of the payment.
At the moment TOKYO has been busy dealing for example with our school moving to Otaniemi. Over and above that TOKYO also arranges events for everyone, such as Rousette Skating, the Christmas & Spring Sales, annual trip to Lapland and Arabia Maskerad. More specific info about the events you can find here. You are warmly welcomed!
