Campus Development development project
In the campus facilities of the Tampere Universities community, the operational development of the facilities and related functions provide an opportunity to promote responsibility and co-creation in the community. The goal of campus development is to create multi-purpose environments that support the everyday life of the community in the best possible way when people study, work, do research and meet others - facilities that correspond to the changing needs of the users and society now and in the future.
The campus areas are a part of the dynamic Tampere urban environment. That is why it is important that the campus areas open to the city environment both spatially and functionally. This fosters versatile co-operation opportunities, the development of services and the dynamism, attractiveness and competitiveness of the Universities community.
Campuses as a platform for co-operation and building an ecosystem
The operating environments foster cooperation both within the community and with the business world, and the public and third sectors. They create a platform for co-operation and building an ecosystem.
The opening up of facilities to the surrounding society
The opening up of facilities to the surrounding society supports the vitality and internationalization of research, innovation and development activities
Modern campus environments
Up to date campus environments that support the Universities’ actions are a significant factor influencing the competitiveness and attractiveness of the Universities community both domestically and internationally.
Responsibly for the benefit of the environment and community
Social and cultural responsibility
Accessible jointly used spaces that change according to the users’ work methods foster the community spirit and the multicultural, equal encounters between fields of science.
According to national climate goals, the Ministry of Education and Culture expects higher education institutions to also take action. The goal of the Tampere Universities’ community is to be carbon neutral by 2030. By 2030 and as part of fulfilling this goal, the number of the community’s facilities will be decreased by 25 percent from the level they were at in 2019.
Adaptable jointly used facilities and the development of operations supporting them enable a more efficient use of the facilities and a better occupancy rate. Facilities with duplicate functions may also be abandoned and used in a manner that meets the user needs better. In the long run, this will yield economic benefits.
