A ‘truly international campus’ is often regarded as an ideal environment for institutions of higher education (HE). The term appears frequently in university strategies, mission statements and promotional materials. But what does the notion actually entail? This article sheds some light on the expectations different actors have of an international campus as a physical and social space-place in Finland. Our study is based on policy documentation, interviews of HE staff members, student representatives and other relevant stakeholders. Using thematic and content analyses of the data the characteristics of an ‘international dream campus’ are described and problematised.
