The matter was decided on 29 October 2018 by the JAMK University of Applied Sciences Ltd. Board of Directors. The School of Health and Social Studies was reserved premises with more than 3,000 m2 of space in the Hippos centre. JAMK’s Sport Business School would also be transferred to Hippos.

“Hippos and the new Nova hospital built near it provide JAMK with a unique opportunity to carry out concrete co-operation with operators in the well-being and health sector,” says Rector Jussi Halttunen from JAMK.

The School of Health and Social Studies can be moved to the new premises as soon as the first stage of Hippos is completed, presumably during the spring of 2022.

The Dynamo unit on Piippukatu will remain a JAMK facility and host the IT Institute, the Teacher Education Collage and the Team Academy in the future.
