Coronavirus emergency operation: Study space booking system

In order to comply with the hygiene regulations, the number of study spaces had to be reduced. In order to avoid queues, you can reserve available study spaces via the carrel booking system. The use of the booking system allows you to plan your library visits in advance and also supports the fair distribution of the available study spaces. At the same time, the University continues to ask students to study and work from home whenever possible.

If you are planning to visit the library, please take note of the following:

  • Refrain from visiting the library in case of illness-especially if you have flu-like symptoms such as cough, pain when breathing and fever.
  • Wearing a face mask within the building is mandatory (It can only be taken off at the booked study space).
  • A minimum distance of 1.5m must be maintained.


Booking a study space

  • In order to book a study space via the carrel booking system, you need a valid URZ login. If you are a registered user and do not have such a login yet, please contact the Central Loan Desk.
  • You can book a study space online up to 2 days in advance.
  • The use of a study space is limited to a maximum of 4 hours per booking.
  • A new booking can only be made after your current booking has expired.

Using a study space

  • In order to use a study space, you need provide proof of your online reservation (confirmation email via smartphone, printout etc.).
  • Face masks can only be taken off at the reserved study space and are mandatory elsewhere.
  • You will find surface disinfectant to clean your reserved study space.
