Saunas

General info

As of 1.1.2018 tenants may book a laundry or a sauna turn in TOASbooking which is available at myTOAS.

There is a sauna in every building, located on the ground floor! Tekniikantornit ABC, DEF and Tieteentornit form three separate key groups, where tenants can access all saunas and laundry rooms in that key group with their apartment key. The saunas have a rotating schedule, so tenants can always use at least one of the saunas in the same key group. All laundry rooms are available every day.

One sauna turn is 40 minutes long. The turns can be booked one at a time, a maximum of one week in advance. In case there is availability on the current day, you may book two turns for the current day.

There are shared sauna turns for everyone (marked as MIXED in booking) at 18.00—18.40 hrs (on saturdays 16.00—16.40 hrs) and 21.20—22.00 hrs. Please do not lock the changing room doors during shared turns!

Common room facilities next to the changing room and saunas are not included in the sauna booking.

Most saunas have room for 3-5 persons to bathe comfortably at once. Larger groups are recommended to use the saunas at Tekniikantornit A1, E2 and Tieteentornit B2 as these saunas have larger changing rooms and more efficient sauna stoves.

The changing room doors lock automatically at 22.00 hrs (10PM) sharp. Make sure you (or your clothes, towels or keys) don't get locked out! Tenant Committee members with the maintenance key may volunteer assistance in lockout situations. The maintanance company charges money for the lockout service.

If you discover any fault, please submit a fault report. In the urgent matters such as water damages or vandalism, you must call the maintenance company's 24h service number: 010 3950 395.

The saunas are available 18.00—22.00 hrs on weekdays and sundays, 16.00—22.00 hrs on saturdays.

If you notice discrepancies in the schedules (e. g. sauna doors locked when they should be open, sauna stove not properly hot) please submit a fault report and notify Tenant Committee about the problem. Based on previous experiences, daylight saving time clock shifts on the last sunday of March and on the last sunday of October have caused problems with the schedules.
