Studying at the library

Studying in group rooms

With a mix of quiet zones with individual desks and areas for group work, the library offers an excellent environment for both study and research.

At our Central Library students can take a break from their work in our lounge area or meet with classmates on our rooftop terrace.

We provide access to literature and specialized information in both print and electronic formats.
Our state-of-the-art facilities will make your work so much easier.

And to ensure that you get the most out of your library experience, we also provide a diverse range of information services and training seminars.
