Campuses of Karelia UAS

The campuses of Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Science operate on two loca­tions in Joensuu. The campuses are multi-field learn­ing and devel­op­ment envi­ron­ments that enable study possi­bil­i­ties across the bound­aries of differ­ent degree programmes.

At the Wärt­silä Campus Inter­na­tional Busi­ness, Busi­ness Econom­ics, Tourism, Forestry and Engi­neer­ing students work towards their profes­sional future. At Tikkarinne Campus, Social and Health Care, and Media students are build­ing their careers. Tikkarinne is located close to the city hospi­tal in Niinivaara. 

The campuses are near to each other and easily reached by walk or bicycle. At our campuses, you will enjoy relaxed and warm learn­ing envi­ron­ment and be part of our support­ive commu­nity.  You can easily access our campuses from all parts of the city by bike and bus.

Our campuses are modern; the wire­less inter­net access as well as group work and comput­ing facil­i­ties enable you to study effi­ciently. Our campus facil­i­ties offer versa­tile places for inde­pen­dent studies. Also, our students’ safety is our prior­ity: The secu­rity system oper­ates around the clock and is flex­i­ble enough to allow students work on campus premises as late as 9 pm in the evening.
