Tampere University Student's Handbook

Navigaattori - low-threshold support service

Tampere University

Navigaattori is a support service for students' counselling and well-being needs. The service combines support from all over the university community. Navigaattori serves students both on campuses and online, and its services are open to everyone who are studying at Tampere University.

Navigaattori is open without prior booking. We can help you find the information you need to solve your problems or simply find the right people. Navigaattori connects you to the support service you need.

All the other University-wide and faculty-level guidance services are still at your disposal. Read more about them below. Need help finding the right support services? See the FAQ about guidance and well-being on the Student's Handbook or come to Navigaattori.

Navigaattori follows the Universities' safer spaces policy. Read more about the policy on Intra.

Navigaattori - online

Navigaattori is open weekly online. The online sessions are always open to all students regardless of campus or faculty. Navigaattori's online sessions use two different platforms.

Guidance services' open chat sessions take place every week up until Christmas. The chat window will open on the right-hand side of this page during opening hours. In the chat, you can ask questions and explain your situation. The chat moderator from the University-wide guidance & counselling services will help you find the right support service and give you advice. Join the chat to find the help you need! The weekly chat opening hours are as follows:

  • Mondays 13-14.30
  • Fridays 10-11.30

In addition to the chat sessions, Navigaattori holds weekly Ask Me Anything -sessions on Jodel. A student counsellor will be answering students' questions each Thursday, 13-14. The AMA session can be found on the @tampereenyliopisto channel on Jodel. Access the channel here! For 2022, the last AMA session is on 8 December. Spring schedules will be published soon.

Navigaattori - on campus

Navigaattori's new facilities are open on the city centre and Hervanta campuses. The city centre space is located in the Linna building. The Hervanta space can be found on the Main Building's 2nd floor.

On the Kauppi campus, Navigaattori will host pop-up sessions during the academic year. Follow Intra for updates!

You can always drop by Navigaattori's on-campus sessions without prior booking. The on-campus sessions will take on different topics and will be hosted by service providers from in and around the University community.
