Destination Tampere - Tampere University of Technology

Tampere - the student friendliest city in Finland

Tampere has year after year been rated in various surveys as Finland´s most popular place to live and study. Tampere is a city of four institutions of higher education with altogether more than 40 000 students. In a city of 220 000 inhabitants, that is a lot! This is visible in good student housing facilities, a plethora of student events, and discounts for students in shops and services around the city. Tampere University of Technology is located in the suburb of Hervanta where everything a student may need is available right next door but the city centre is only a short bus ride away.

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. 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.
