The access rights need to be requested separately for each academic year. 

Unipoli Sport provides high-quality, versatile and equal sports services for university students and personnel in the Tampere region. You can use three campuses' services for just one fee!


5. Building a new Tampere3 library - We are unifying library practices

In the new Tampere 3 community, a one unified library offers versatile services for both TAMK and the university. As a result, the customer service practices of existing libraries will be gradually harmonized beginning Autumn 2018.

The following policies will change at TAMK library 13.8.2018:

• The maximum number of renewals for non-course books increases to 50 times. (The maximum number of renewals course books is still 10 times).

• Loan fines are due immediately after the due date. 

• The loan period of journals will rise to 7 days.

• The returning time of short-term loans is always on the next business day before 10.00.

By unifying customer service practices, we strive to ensure the same high-quality services for all customers in all universities. During the autumn, we all are being gently acquainted with the upcoming changes and we will diligently announce the upcoming reforms and customer service improvements! Have a nice new beginning of the school year wishes the staff of TAMK library!
