Use fragrances in moderation on our campuses

University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences encourage employees and students to use fragrances in moderation on campuses so that everyone can study and work in a pleasant environment.

For many people fragrances cause headaches and nausea. For example, perfumes and aftershaves as well as hair styling products can cause these symptoms. One in three of the Finns suffer from fragrance sensitivity.

Also, the smell of snuff has caused nausea in the university community, so please take others into account if you use nicotine products. Please smoke only in places reserved for smoking.

More information on fragrance sensitivity on the Hengitysliitto webpage.
