Campus bikes

The University of Tampere has campus bikes for the use of staff and students. Bikes are meant for travelling between campuses and they can be requested from the house managers. There are bikes at the main campus, Virta, Arvo and Nekala school and they can be loaned from 8 AM to 4 PM. The bike must be returned on the loan day to one of these buildings before they close for the day.

To loan a bike, please present a valid staff or student card to the house managers. The house managers will also provide you with a helmet and a bike light, if requested.

The user of the bike must take care of the bike as if it is their own and always lock the bike to the bicycle stand. If the bike malfunctions while loaning it, the house managers must be notified of the malfunction at the return of the bike.
