Tallinn University

Tallinn, Estonia
Tallinn University, as a university in Estonia, offers and develops education and research focusing on the needs of Estonia as a society.

Services

Housing services

The University is mediating the places between dormitories and the students. It should be kept in mind though, that applying for a dormitory place does not automatically mean that there is a place available. The places in the dormitories are limited and therefore not all of the students can be accommodated in the dormitories.

Library services

Tallinn University Academic Library is one of the most comprehensive research libraries of Estonia in all fields of knowledge, except construction and agriculture.

Student Life

Campus life

The campus is located in the centre of Tallinn, next to Kadriorg Park and the Tallinn bay. A strip of land next to Narva Road situates most of our educational, research and creative activities. Only a few areas of study are located outside the main campus.

Sports facilities

The main campus has a ball games hall, a fitness studio and a gymnastics hall. It is also possible to join one or many of the Tallinn University sports teams and take sports lessons as elective courses.

Student clubs

Tallinn University International Club (ESN TU IC) is an organization, which was founded in 2006 as a part of Tallinn University Student Union. International Club (IC) is for all international students of Tallinn University to help them during their first months abroad.
