Studying On-Site


We kindly ask you to store any coats, jackets and bags (including laptop sleeves) in the lockers.

Our cloakroom provides several lockers for storing your personal belongings during the visit of our library. In order to use the lockers you will need to bring an open shackle padlock with a shackle thickness of 5-6 mm.

BiB-bag, padlocks and other items in the stationery machine

The on-site vending machine holds the BiB-bag (a transparent plastic bag) for the price of 4,90 €. It is also stocked with open shackle padlocks (6,90 €) necessary for using the lockers. Whiteboard markers, USB flash drives, erasers and much more, are also available for purchase. Please note that the vending machine only accepts coins.

The Campus Nord Branch Library provides about 400 individual work stations.

Do you prefer to work at a workstation screened off by shelves, or would you rather work in one of the large reading rooms?

The Campus Nord Branch Library offers several types of workstations to meet the different needs of its users. Three large reading rooms, several reading areas, eight group study rooms and various lounge areas will aid you to find a place that fits your individual needs.


Computer workstations

About 40 workstations are equipped with computers that are connected to the internet and therefore give access to printing (fees for printouts must be paid at the copiers with the MensaCard/CampusCard). You will find computer workstations at the following locations:

  • on the 2nd floor in reading room3 (Lesesaal 3)
  • on the 1st floor in room 1.25A
  • on the ground floor in room 0.42A 

Please use the floor plan (pdf) to find out the exact locations. The Campus Nord Branch Library provides a height-adjustable workstation on the ground floor and a family room on the 2nd floor.


Group study rooms/Rooms for digital teaching with active language participation

The library's sevenrooms for group work can be found at different locations in the building. The rooms are not locked and can be used during the library opening hours without prior request. There is, however, a reservation list for each room. Lists for the current week are posted at each study room's door. This enables you to get information about each room's accessibility. Reservations are recommended especially during the examination periods. The rooms can be booked two weeks in advance.
