The course leader will give you instructions about supplies and equipment needed during the course. Please note that TZS does not lend or sell scissors, tweezers, rain gear etc.


Course participants are accommodated in double rooms in the student dormitory. When arriving during office hours, you can pick up the key from the office. If you arrive in the evening, you will find the room keys in the hall of the main building. The course leader will give you the code for the front door. You have to bring your own linen (2 sheets and a pillow case; sleeping bag is not allowed). Cleaners will automatically make up beds without linen and the station will charge for them.


Nearest shops, post office, restaurants etc. are located in Hanko (17 km).
