  • On the floorplan you can see in which areas the seats in the reading rooms are located. 
  • Click to set the start time, then choose the end time from the pull-down menu below the chart.
  • Once you've made your reservation, you will receive a confirmation email with your check in code.
  • Do not forget your student card. Otherwise it is not possible to enter the library.

  • Please note: If you haven't checked in, 30 minutes after the start time, your reservation will automatically expire!
  • For the time being, you may bring water/tea/coffee to the reading rooms.
  • Please dispose of your trash properly, and leave the work place that you used as you’d like to find it.
  • Finished early? Check out and make space for a fellow student.

We look forward to seeing you at the UB!
