The Faculty of Educational Sciences is located in Siltavuorenpenger in Kruununhaka district near the city centre of Helsinki. Siltavuorenpenger is a traditional university area. The newly renovated faculty facilities were previously facilities of Departments of Anatomy, Medical Chemistry, Physiology, High Energy Physics and Physics. In the middle of old atmospheric buildings is Minerva building that was completed in 2005.

The learning centre Minerva administered by university's library offers excellent facilities for active group or individual study either at the computers or in the silent reading rooms.
