The station was opened on 1 March 1983, designed by Eero Hyvämäki, Jukka Karhunen, and Risto Parkkinen. It is located 1.2 kilometres (0.75 mi) from the Ruoholahti metro station, and 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) from the Central Railway Station. The station is the deepest of the Helsinki Metro stations, at a depth of 31 metres (102 ft) below ground level[2] and 15 metres (49 ft) below sea level. It was built with a secondary platform located perpendicularly under the one in use, reserved for a future metro extension.[3] Like other underground metro stations in Helsinki, Kamppi metro station was designed to also serve as a bomb shelter.[4]

A new eastern entrance, connecting directly to Kamppi Center, was opened on 2 June 2005.
