  • Diverse sports, athletics and exercise possibilities
  • Modern, hybrid, ergonomic workspaces

Sports centre

The sports centre will have facilities for around 20 different sports such as athletics, gymnastics, martial arts and team sports. There are hybrid training facilities, which can be adapted to the needs of different sports. The centre also includes an indoor game arena for about 2,000 spectators and multi-purpose courts for different ball games. The sports centre also houses a playschool, restaurants and a supermarket.

Science and business centre

At Hippos, the science and business centre is the heart of R&D and innovative business derived from it. The Faculty of Sports Science of the University of Jyväskylä and the Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences both have teaching and research facilities at the centre, such as the Training Room and the Kihu Research Laboratory. There is also plenty of office space in the building.

There are several other business premises, restaurants and cafés next to the business and research centre as well.

The existing Hippos ice rink will be renovated and expanded to create a new ice arena. It can be a sports auditorium for 6,000+ people or an event auditorium for 7,000+ people. In addition to the main ice arena, three training ice rinks will be built. The third one will be built once the rest of Hippos is in operation.

Outdoor spaces

A new pesäpallo stadium and an outdoor sports park will be built on the Hippos campus for common use.
