First Aid

AaltoAPUA helpline 050 46 46 462

The AaltoAPUA number 050 46 46 462 (+358 50 46 46 462 from abroad) can be contacted whenever in need of assistance.

The helpline is open 24/7 year-round and provides assistance in both Finnish and English.

The helpline will pass on your request for assistance to the correct people or organisation: the university service unit in question, property maintenance company, guards, etc.

When calling the helpline, please

  • state your name
  • give your location
  • give your unit’s or your supervisor’s name
  • give a clear explanation of why you are calling
  • do not hang up the call until you are directed to do so.

Please note that the helpline is not a replacement for Finland’s national emergency number, 112. In emergency situations that require immediate attention (fire, sudden bouts of illness, etc.) the fastest way to get assistance is to contact the national emergency number.
