New student


Where do I find course literature? Can I study in the library? As a new student there is a lot of useful things you should know.

The student card is your library card

As a student, your student card is your library card. You must order a student card to be able to:

  • borrow books from the library
  • retrieve prints, copy and scan documents on a printer
  • access the university and the library on weekends and evenings

Studying in the library

Many students like to sit and study in the library. You can find a large number of different study spaces in the library, like quiet reading rooms and areas suitable for group study and discussions. Its possible to make a reservation to group study rooms.

Access to library after staffed opening hours

You can access the library using your student card/and pin code. Card and code gives you access to the library 7 days a week from 07.00-22.00!
Staff-less libraries means that you have access to the library facilities before and after regular, staffed opening hours.

Course literature are the books that are listed as compulsory literature in the literature lists of the university's various courses.
All course literature is available for use in the library and for loan.
