Tampere University Student's Handbook

Smoke-free campus

All the campuses of Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences (city centre campus, Hervanta campus, Kauppi campus, TAMK main campus) are smoke-free as of 1 January 2019. The smoke-free policy applies to all staff, students, visitors and contractors. Tampere Universities have adopted the smoke-free policy to support the health and wellbeing of staff, students and other members of our community.

The smoke-free policy means that smoking is only allowed in specifically designated outdoor areas. The policy also applies to electronic cigarettes. Employees must clock out for smoke breaks. According to the Tobacco Act, smokeless tobacco products (e.g. snuff) may also not be used indoors in the university community. No tobacco products are sold on our campuses.
