Exchange student
• LLP/Erasmus exchange
• Other bilateral agreements
• Free-movers
• NB! You have the same rights as TUT
degree students, at the same time you
hold the status of your home university
student, and you are here only for ONE
semester or a YEAR!!!
How to find the right room?
• TUT room marking system consists of the
building number, floor and room number.
For example, IRO U02-201
2nd building, II floor (in Estonia Ist floor is
ground lever floor), room no 01.
• Extensions of buildings are marked with
letter B after the building no.
• The numbering system changed this
semester at TUT, therefore we are sorry if
there are any misunderstandings.
