Campus information

TUT’s campus in the suburb of Hervanta is a community of 9,200 undergraduate and postgraduate students and close to 1,800 employees. Internationality is an inherent part of all the University’s activities. Around 1,500 foreign nationals from more than 60 countries work or pursue studies at TUT.

TUT offers its students an opportunity for a broad, cross-disciplinary education. Competent Masters of Science of Technology and Architecture as well as Doctors of Technology and Philosophy graduated from TUT are in high demand among employers.


TUT is located in Tampere, the Nordic countries’ largest inland city, some 170 km north of the capital Helsinki.

Tampere is a hub for leading-edge technology, research, education, culture, sports and business. It is one of the three most rapidly developing regions in Finland and the largest inland centre in the Nordic countries. More than 213,000 inhabitants wake up every morning in Tampere and close to half a million in Tampere Region, which comprises Tampere and its neighboring municipalities.

A key characteristic of a well-functioning city is that travelling to and within the urban area is easy. Tampere is ideally located in the middle of Finland with good traffic connections.


Housing in Finland is of high quality. All the houses have central heating and inside temperatures remains comfortably at +20°C even when it is minus 20°C outside. Triple windows and heavy doors ensure that heat is retained inside.

Student housing in Tampere is administrated by the student housing foundation TOAS (Tampereen opiskelija-asuntosäätiö). TOAS offers high-quality dorm rooms at a student-friendly price. The flats are mainly situated within a walking distance from the University.

Students normally have their own bedroom and they share a kitchen and a bathroom with one or two other students. In most of the TOAS houses there is a common sauna and a meeting room which you can rent for your own events.

Students may also look for housing on the private market. The private market offers a wide range of different housing opportunities. You may find a flat with your own sauna, a studio flat or a large flat to share with your friends. There are also different agencies that help you find a flat. It is also wise to check other housing companies in case they have anything to offer. Flats on the private market are usually rented unfurnished.

Rents vary from 250 to up to 700 euros (or even more) per month depending on the size and condition of your flat. All flats are well heated in the winter time and equipped with an oven, fridge and freezer.
