Student access to campus facilities

Tampere University and TAMK

Student access to campus facilities

All students at Tampere Universities have general access to the buildings and facilities on our campuses. Read on to find out more about activating your access rights.

Campus buildings are open from Monday to Friday also to University community external persons. Staff, students and non-employees, who have a resource agreement and a key card, will be able to access the campus buildings with their key card before and after mentioned times.

The EXAM venues will be open to students during the times when their access rights are activated.

Exam visits (exams taken by students from other higher education institutions) are possible in the Tietotalo building on the Hervanta campus on weekdays from 8 to 16.

  • On summertime June 20 to August 12, 2022 on weekdays from 9 to 16.

At TAMK, student access rights will remain activated on the TAMK main campus on weekdays from 7 to 22, on Saturdays from 7.30 to 20, and on Sundays from 8 to 20.

Access to the Library's study facilities.

Please continue to follow the safety and health instructions on all our premises:

  •     Come to campus only completely healthy.
  •     Wash hands and use hand disinfectant.

Students on the Kauppi and city centre campuses

Your student card will automatically provide access to the facilities that are open 24/7 in the Arvo, Linna and TietoPinni buildings and PinniA Gatehouse as well as certain facilities that are open to all students enrolled in your degree programme. You can visit any of the info desks on the Hervanta campus to activate access rights to facilities on the Hervanta campus. Access to TAMK’s facilities you can activate to your access card at the info desks on the TAMK main campus.  

As the chairpersons of student associations manage access rights to the premises occupied by their association, they must provide Main building info desk staff with a list of the persons who will be granted access rights. The faculties manage access rights to other facilities. Faculty staff will provide info desk staff in Arvo or the Main building with a list of students who are to receive access rights. After you visit the info desk and activate these access rights, you will be able to access the premises with your student card.   

Open University students can obtain a separate key card, which you can collect from the info desk. Contact information of the info desks can be found from the Intranet page Campus info desks
