The sports center opened officially in 2019. The new student apartments were also presented during the opening ceremony. This unique building project is the result of a partnership between Hanken and Arcada University of Applied Sciences. For the first time, Hanken has student housing to offer its students. The Student Union of Hanken School of Economics, or SHS, was founded in 1909. During the years, the union has carried a great variety of names and been engaged in many different fields of activity. In the process of university reform, SHS received its current status as a veritable students’ union in 1975. The union is today an independent public juridical entity, regulated by the decree on students’ unions.
