Heart of a Living Village turns 50 years

Restaurant Rentukka – the name of which was chosen from almost 500 proposals in the title competition – opened to the public for the first time on June 3, 1972. Rentukka, renovated in 2018, will thus reach a respectable age of 50 in June.

Today, Rentukka serves as a communal meeting place, where in addition to the restaurant, there are plenty of different spaces for studying, hobbies, meetings and parties. During the summer, you can get to know the history of Rentukka and Kortepohja Student Village through pictures, posters, memories and stories in an exhibition divided into different facilities in Rentukka.

In honor of the birthday, Rentukka will be filled with communal activities for all tenants of the area on Friday 3rd of June. Live music, games, dance, new friends, good food and spending time together. There are several clubs and communities gathering at Rentukka and their activities can be explored on a low threshold on Friday as well. The restaurant is open until late night.

A warm welcome to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the heart of a living village!
