Presenting Helsinki XR Center


Helsinki XR Center

Helsinki XR Center (HXRC) is a unique extended reality centre that combines design and technology in a new way. It is located in conjunction with the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences’ Creative Campus. HXRC is the biggest virtual reality centre in the Nordics and aims to be a global market player through partners, multiple projects, events and the XR Design option in Metropolia’s design degree programme.


On the Arabia135 block, creative fields and new technologies come together in an amazing way. The different user groups that operate in the spaces gain synergy benefits. The urban arena offers commercial potential especially to start-ups. There is room to think on the block.

Meet and globalise

The Arabia135 block comprises diverse players, companies and organisations, and this in itself creates an authentic cultural environment. The physical location of the block is very conducive to a variety of encounters. For Helsinki XR Center, this is a great springboard for exploring the international market. 

Get to know the arena of stories

Metropolia’s Arabia Culture Campus is an arena of stories. The area boasts a strong, fascinating and traditional history of art and design, and this is something we at Helsinki XR Center do not want to forget.
