Major overhauls and other renovations:

Välkkylä Student village’s sites are going through complete renovation one at a time. The major overhaul of Ylioppilaantie 4 was completed in January 2024.

Sampola in Kajaanintie 40 will be completely renovated starting September 2024. The existing apartments will be remodeled into 18 studios, 18 one-bedroom family apartments and six three-room family apartments. The shared spaces on the ground floor will be renovated as well. There will be a children’s playroom serving all Välkkylä tenants on site.

Seppo Valjus Oy is in charge of the architectural and master planning of the project and Insinööritoimisto Putkonen Oy is responsible for the structural design. The estimated completion of the basic improvement is in September 2025.
