Tekniikan- and Tieteentornit are TOAS's housing locations in Hervanta, Tampere. A total of nine apartment buildings provide a home for over 600 tenants nearby Tampere University Hervanta Campus (formerly TUT), Police University College and Teekkari sauna. Tekniikantornit A, B and C (Tekniikankatu 10) were built in 2001 and D, E, F (Tekniikankatu 14) later in 2002. Tieteentornit (Tekniikankatu 16) was built in 2009. The most significant difference between the two housing locations is the heat recovery ventilation at Tieteentornit.

The apartments are unfurnished, mainly single-room apartments (27,5m²), or shared flats with common kitchen-living room combinations per apartment. In addition, Tieteentornit provides two-room apartments for families and bigger single-room apartments (39,5-42,5m²) including kitchen-living room and a separate bedroom.

Based on tenants' observations, queueing for a single-room apartment takes usually about 10–12 months. Queue times vary during the semester. For a shared apartment, the queues typically take few months at the beginning of the semester and queues shorten in the spring.
