OASIS

With heavy hearts, we are closing OASIS for now due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

After consulting the university’s corona task force, we have decided that this is the best course of action in the current situation.

The space will be closed to the public starting on Friday 13.3.
We are also not currently accepting any new event requests or spot reservations.

We apologize to all of our visitors, and hope that this decision will help in slowing down the spread of the virus.

OASIS is a social space and living lab at the Tampere University

In OASIS the new and old media, informal and formal learning come together. OASIS is a place for people to have a break and relax, play games or study. OASIS is the home for Game Research Lab game and book collection and a meeting point for students, staff and visitors of the Tampere University.  OASIS is open for everybody!
