Important information

There are parking places (2 h/ 4 h) at the University of Oulu, but you need to be early to get a spot (usually all of them are taken at 9 am). We recommend using public transport (busses) to get to the University from the city center.

The main bus stop in the city center of Oulu (when travelling towards the University) is called Kaupungintalo P (behind the City hall of Oulu) and the busses that go to the University are 1, 2, 3 and 8. The travel is about 20 minutes. Other alternative bus stops in the center are called Pokkitörmä (busses 1, 2, 3, 8, 48) and Kuvernööri P (bus 48).

When travelling back to the City center from the University the bus stop is called Yliopisto E. All the bus stops can be found from Google maps.

In the bus you can pay only with cash or with a mobile ticket (app available in Google Play & App store: “Oulun joukkoliikenne”).
