If you wish to cancel your booking, let us know by email at tilavaraukset@hel.fi(Link opens default mail program). You can cancel single bookings free of charge 14 days before the start of the booking. 

It is not possible to cancel a single booking or make changes within a series of booking (i.e., recurring booking with several dates, for example once a week). However, the entire booking or all the remaining single bookings can be cancelled free of charge within the cancellation period of 14 days. 

Changes to start and end times of bookings or facilities must always be made as new requests.

During the booking, you must have an adult person in charge of the group’s activities and behaviour in the school facilities. 

Details

Most of our school facilities require evening supervision. The evening supervisor opens the door 15 minutes before the start of the event. The Education Division’s Facility Services assign an evening supervisor when the booking is accepted. 

Some of our facilities can be reserved for independent use without the presence of city staff or a city representative. In this case, the person making the reservation commits to seeing to the safety, supervision and the final cleaning independently. Facilities for independent use are listed in the Timmi calendar, in which case the name of the unit/facility is followed by the marking “Itsenäinen käyttö”.

You are responsible for the safety of your event. The Education Division as the holder of the facilities and the owner of the facilities are responsible for the safety of the facilities.

Smoking, the use of alcohol and other intoxicants on school facilities and in the school premises is prohibited.
