How to reach Odeion

TUAS-building is marked with number 37 in the Map of Otaniemi. Odeion is situated on the 2nd floor, right next to the bridge connecting the CS (number 30) and TUAS buildings. You can either use the bridge from CS building, or the stairs coming from the TUAS main lobby, next to the restaurant.

By public transport: You can use the HSL route planner to find the best public transportation method from your current location into the TUAS building. The nearest bus stop is in the corner of Otaniementie and Konemiehentie/Tietotie. Here are the timetables from there to the West (Espoo/Kehä I) and East (Helsinki/Länsiväylä).

By car: the TUAS building is easily accessible from the "Kehä I" ring road. There are three free parking lots available nearby (see the map). Please note, that the ring road is typically quite congested between approximately 7:30-9:30 and 14:30-18:30, especially in bad weather.
