Finlandia University’s Lily I. Jutila Center, located at 200 Michigan street on the banks of Portage Lake less than a mile from the main campus, was opened in 2005. The Finlandia University Jutila Campus is located on the banks of the Portage Waterway, five blocks from Finlandia’s Quincy St. campus.
Formerly a hospital, the renovated building now houses Finlandia’s International School of Art & Design (ISAD), the Reflection Gallery, and the Lily I. Jutila Center for Global Design and Business that houses various independently owned businesses. The various new studios and labs are expansive and professional in both appearance and equipment. As a result, we have created a “community” where students, faculty, and business people interact and collaborate – sharing ideas, equipment and workspace.
The Finlandia Reflection Gallery, located on the second level of the Jutila Center Campus, was established to give the students of Finlandia University’s International School of Art & Design department, as well as local artists, the opportunity to display artwork in a professional manner in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Over 30 service and retail businesses occupy the Jutila Center. From wellness and design services to insurance, engineering and software development, these innovative businesses are here to serve you. Stop by the Jutila Center at 200 Michigan Street Monday through Friday and visit Hancock’s popular Kangas Cafe overlooking Portage Lake.
The building also houses several University departments including University Relations, Marketing Communications, Human Resources, Advancement and Alumni Relations
