Welcome to Tamko’s first evening of 2022! You can dig up your dusty overalls and come sew patches on them, so they will be ready for all the events this spring has to offer. You can also play board games, go to the sauna or just hang out with a good crowd of people. There will be some snacks available so you don’t have to go hungry. We still have to be careful about Covid, so please do not come to the event if you feel sick at all.

4. Remember to use face mask on campus!

When returning to campus it is good to remind everyone about the use of the face mask. Wearing a face mask is required in the indoors facilities of Tampere Universities. Face masks will be available from the main entrances on the campus buildings.

Also remember the other intructions such as to take care about hand hygiene and that do not come to campus if you feel unwell.

We all want campuses to stay open and its is safer for everyone to come there to work or study. It is very important that all the members of our community continue to behave responsibly.

9. SOURCE ry: Pinball night 

There are many signs of the Spring. The drunkards wake up from their hibernation and return to the benches of Keskustori to nap. It will snow until May Day, but it will rain on May Day. But above all others is one sign of Spring – Waiting for May Day. However, there is still quite a bit of anticipation for May Day so instead we’d have something else to do to alleviate this painful anticipation.

SOURCE ry will be going to Ikuri arcade to play a little pinball. The tickets include 3 hours of playing time, so you can play the pinball machines for free!! This mystical gaming paradise awaits us at Kalkun viertotie 2 A 19  p.m. 16.45 15.3.2022. NOTE! Please come to the venue in time to get things running smoothly. The event is open for everyone!

Ticket sale starts 28.2.2022 at 2pm in Kide.app!

Student Barometer is a survey aimed at students in higher education. Its purpose is to collect information on students’ experiences and opinions of their studies, student life, and everyday life. Information produced by Student Barometer is used in work to develop student wellbeing, student activities, the quality of teaching, higher education internships, studies and reports on working life and living, and educational institutions. By responding to the survey, you are participating in discussions about topics that affect student life!

Students respond to the survey anonymously and their data will not be combined with data from other sources. Results will be published in such a way that it will not be possible to identify an individual respondent.
