Accessibility to all the buildings is ensured by ramps, elevators and automatic doors. New elevators have voice control and many elevators also have Braille buttons.

On Hervanta campus, the buildings are connected to each other by an accessible internal route. On the city centre campus, an unobstructed internal connection is found between Main building and PinniB, and between PinniB and PinniA. TAMK main campus has an accessible internal route between Kuntokatu 3 and Kuntokatu 4 through an overpass.

Induction loops

Most of the bigger classrooms and infos have an induction loop that can be used to transfer speech wirelessly to the hearing aid. The facilities with an induction loop can be found at site. You can also find induction loop facilities from Resource Booker using the Induction Loop filter. You can ask more information from building info desk.
