During the past two weeks we have heard of plans regarding study environments which will weaken remarkably the students’ status and opportunities for studying. These are: study environments shifting from Tellus to Pegasus and freezing the planning of study environments. In addition to that, we are unhappy about lack of environments for independent studying both on Linnanmaa and Kontinkangas campuses. We are also worried about the lack of information and communication regarding changes in study environments.
With this demonstration we want to express students’ concern regarding study environments. We all need modern study environments in order to get good-quality education. We criticise the decisions that the university has made and how it has communicated about them. Students should be informed about decisions that concern them before the decisions are made. We are very worried about how the university can guarantee modern and sufficient study and work environments for students and staff members.
