Alvar Aalto received the assignment to develop the University of Technology student housing as a part of the comprehensive plan for Otaniemi campus in 1950. He drew up several plans but only one of his plans was realized.
In 1962-65 Aalto designed the student dormitory TKY 2. It consists of two red-brick wings joined to form a V figure. At the juncture is a one-storey entrance hall with glazed facade and barrel skylights. One of the wings has five storeys and a serpentine facade reminiscent of the MIT dormitory. The other wing has only three storeys. The buildings contain a total of some 200 rooms grouped to provide one kitchen per between seven and eleven rooms.
