House rules University Library

Meet each other, study quietly or work together at our library locations. To promote and maintain a pleasant atmosphere, the University Library has drawn up house rules.

Be fair, share your chair

Reserving a study space is not possible. So share yours by using a time cube with card. Write down the time you expect to be back at your desk and meanwhile a fellow student will be able to use your study space.
