There are approximately 70 parking spaces for customers at street level on the southwestern side of the shopping center at Biologinkuja. You can drive to the parking spaces from Ring Road I (from the direction of Keilaniemi or northern Tapiola) by turning to Tekniikantie and then to Tietotie. From Tietotie turn right to the back side of the shopping center just before the Maarintie crossing. Parking is free of charge.
There are many frame-mounted bicycle parking racks close to both main entrances of A Bloc. There is also a city bike station approximately 50 meters from the shopping center.
The bottle recycling point and Otto ATM are located on floor 1 of the shopping center.
Customer toilets are located on floor 2 of the shopping center.
In the shopping center, there is a 12 m² pop-up space that is rented out for changing entrepreneurs and experimental concepts. The space is located along the main passage by the second entrance from the Korkeakouluaukio, next to Alko. Due to its central location and glass walls, the space offers good visibility in the center. The pop-up is rented out from two weeks to two months.
