Use of school premises by Espoo residents

Classrooms, auditoriums, dining halls and entrance halls at Espoo-based schools are available for Espoo residents to rent outside school hours, basic education afternoon activities and other operations of the City of Espoo itself. This website contains instructions on the use of these premises.

The sports facilities of Espoo-based schools are also available for use but a separate set of instructions applies to them.

Both recurring and one-off (max. 3 times) time slots are available for reservation. Recurring time slots for an entire season need to be applied for in the preceding spring. The application period for one-off and complementary recurring time slots is always open.

Some premises are supervised, while in other premises the users commit to self-supervision and take care of certain supervision and cleaning tasks independently. To apply for the use of supervised premises, always use the resource booking system of the City of Espoo. To apply for self-supervised use, please submit an application directly to the school. The applicant must also sign a commitment to perform self-supervision.

Instructions for the users of school premises:

A document called General Principles of the Use of Education and Cultural Services’ Premises by Espoo Residents describes the grounds on which time slots in the premises are granted and the way fees are determined, among other things.
