As our references show, we are constantly developing our campuses. Today’s campus is a place where higher education meets enterprise and services. We collaborate proactively with different stakeholders driving the concept of a multi-user campus.
A joint building for the University of Tampere Faculty of Medicine and Life Sciences, the Health Science department of the Faculty of Social Sciences, laboratory services and BioMediTech, including housing the university library Arvo.

University of Tampere, Tampere University of Technology, BioMediTech, Tampere University of Applied Sciences and Pirkanmaa Hospital District.
At the heart of the building is the lobby restaurant and the open multipurpose lobbies which serve as natural points for encounters.
Other information: The building supports the university’s strategy by facilitating synergies and mixed use of spaces.
The medical, life science and health science teaching and research are now all under the same roof. This adds collaboration, as the researchers are in real contact more than before. Instead of dividing the space by faculty organisation, people working on similar tasks share their space. Offices, laboratories and teaching facilities are all grouped together. This creates more adaptability.
The routes within the building have been designed so that all the floors are accessed through the central lobby. This leads to creative collisions that generate new types of collaboration. This leads to creative collisions that generate new types of collaboration.
The building is designed to high sustainability standards. With a modern energy consumption control system, the building has been awarded the BREEAM
Very Good environmental certificate.

A hub of science, research and technology at the centre of the Tampere University of Technology (TUT) campus.
The vibrant Hervanta campus in Tampere.
This is where businesses, researchers, students and the alumni meet.
“It is important for us to be within close proximity to the Tampere University of Technology and our other partners. We have research collaboration with the university under several projects. We value the central location and modern facilities.”
The ground floor and first floor serve as the common living room for the campus with a wide range of services available. You can have a meal at the campus restaurants and Taco House, get a haircut at Mroom or use the TUT library.
The 2nd–7th floors are occupied by companies such Huawei and Ponsse as well as Regus office hotel.
Kampusklubi at Kampusareena brings together companies and universities, research and R&D. Read more about the Kampusklubi.
Kampusareena’s spatial solutions and services are designed to support a strong sense of community as well as cooperation between the university and businesses. In addition to facilities, the campus offers a wide range of services that help build connections and trigger collaboration with students and researchers.
The base for the University of Oulu Department of Dentistry, the oral health education at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences and the centralised dentistry services of the City of Oulu.

Current and future dentistry professionals, researchers and teachers all under the same roof.
By combining similar functions, we have achieved significant savings from the use of space and building services. There are also direct video links from the treatment rooms to teaching facilities.
Other information: The users share instrument management spaces, in addition to which they may use the facilities of the Faculty of Medicine in the neighbouring building. The buildings are linked by a corridor. Dentopolis also has tunnel access to the Oulu University Hospital and the Oulu City Hospital.
The building has been designed to support new operative concepts. The rows of treatment rooms are grouped around a cellular spatial arrangement, allowing flexible collaboration between practitioners. The teaching facilities are suited for modern simulation-based teaching, which lets students practice their practical skills. All offices are comfortable and tranquil multi-user spaces that nurture collaboration.
The interiors are punctuated by high lobby spaces and spacious waiting rooms. The fresh colours on the walls of the hallways leading to the treatment rooms are welcoming and reassuring for the customers. The spaces have a good acoustic design.

“There are more of us now who physically share the same space. Previously, we sat isolated each in our own office, whereas most of us work in the multi-user space now. This is a great environment for business.”
Each floor has a central multi-purpose lobby accessed from four “cubes”. Those who research and teach similar subjects work in the same cube regardless of the line organisation. The ambience is different in each cube, which is conducive to different processes.
The learning environments have been designed with functionality and adaptability to different group sizes in mind.
Other information: Ruusupuisto is an environmentally sustainable building. Part of the energy for the building is produced on site by solar panels.
We closely listened to the needs of the students and the teaching staff through user meetings, workshops and questionnaires. A user-led team coordinated the participation of all users in the joint development effort while gauging the challenges of digital working environments.
