Group study rooms and student work places

A large number of student work places are situated throughout the library. For instance, there are individual work places, some of which are equipped with computers, quiet study areas, and group study rooms. Some of the group study rooms are bookable.

  • Groups have priority over individual students. Individual students are referred to the open reading areas and the quiet reading rooms.
  • Group rooms can be booked up to 7 days in advance and for a maximum of 6 hours during the immediate one week period.
  • Please cancel your booking if you do not intend to use it.
  • If a room is vacant 15 minutes after booked time the room becomes available for other groups.
