A parliamentary decision by the Republic of Estonia consolidated several Tallinn universities and institutes into a single institution that resulted in the founding of Tallinn University as a public university on 18 March 2005.
Tallinn University supports the sustainable development of Estonia through high quality research and study, education of intellectuals, public discussions and promotion of academic partnership.
Wishing to contribute more to the society, we have set the goal of becoming the promoter of intelligent lifestyle in Estonia. The term Intelligent Lifestyle stands for making research-based decisions in order to improve the society in general and the well-being of its citizens.
Finding suitable accommodation can be sometimes challenging when you are coming to a new country. All new students are responsible themselves for making sure they have the necessary accommodation when entering Estonia for studies. The University can help by indicating the direction as to where to look for a place from.
The University is also 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. A lot of our students use private housing options.
The Tallinn University Academic Library includes the Research Library (Rävala pst 10), the Study Centre (Astra building, Narva mnt 29) and the Film and Media Library (Nova building, Narva mnt 27). With its more than 2.6 million information entities and extensive electronic resources, the Academic Library supports the acquisition of high-quality education.
We are located in the centre of Tallinn, next to Kadriorg Park and the Tallinn bay. A strip of land next to Narva Road contains most of our educational, research and creative activities. Only a few areas of study are located outside the main campus.
The Tallinn University Sports Club was created on 1 January 2009.
The club coordinates students sports, competitive sports, the usage of sports halls on the Tallinn University campus and the cooperation between Tallinn University and the Estonian Academic Sports Federation.
Tallinn University values all cultural and sportive activities. We encourage all our members (staff and students) to engage in cultural activities via our Symphony Orchestra, Men's Choir, Women's Choir, or the folk dance group Soveldaja.
In Estonia, only institutions of higher education which have passed the evaluation of quality of studies are allowed to provide higher education. This includes the right to issue state graduation certificates.
