Much of our research and teaching is carried out on the 40 hectare campus, where, in addition to the academic buildings and library, one of the most eye-catching sports halls in Tartu and the tallest student union building are within sight. Research and practice bases are also located in the Järvselja study and experimental forest, the Polli Horticultural Research Centre, the Rõhu experimental station and the Limnology Centre on the shores of Lake Võrtsjärv
