Taking a break?

You may stay away from study places without computers for up to half an hour. After that time your things will be put in a red basket by library staff and another person may take your place. Computers are logged off automatically after twenty minutes. Please don't occupy study places when it is not absolutely necessary and show consideration for your fellow students.


  •  Log in to a print computer if you only want to print your documents
  • You can also use mobile print via email. Then you can send your printjobs from anywhere and do not need a study place to be able to print
  • Use the catalogue computers if you want to do a quick search. You do not need to log in to the catalogue computers
  • Bring your own laptop and use our Wi-Fi
  • It is possible to borrow a laptop at the service desks.
