Tampereen ylioppilastalosäätiö (also known as the YO-talo Foundation) a joint foundation of the student unions in Tampere. For decades, the main duty of the Foundation was the management of the YO-talo building at Kauppakatu 10. Built in 1901, the building was donated to the student unions in 1968 by the City of Tampere. The Student Union of the University of Tampere held their office on the second floor of the YO-talo building up until mid-2013 after which the building was given back to the City. The highest decision-making body of the Foundation is the delegation nominated by the councils of Tamy and TTYY, which in turn chooses the Foundation board. At the moment, Tamy’s Secretary General acts as the delegation’s secretary. After giving up the YO-talo building, the Foundation has been investigating substitute opportunities.
