The Library as a meeting place

Where do we sit?

This is a phrase we often hear from students who comes into the Library. We have lots of seats to choose from. More specifically, there are 800 seats at the library.

The first thing you see when you come into the library is our stylish lounge. Lots of people wonder what one can and cannot do in the lounge. There is really no written rules for the lounge. The idea is to be able to sit on comfy couches and read the magazines that are there, or just sit and talk or just sit on the couch and take a break from the everyday life.

The question is what are your needs?

If you want to work by yourself and would like it to be quiet around you, then you should go to the quiet study room which is located on the 2nd floor (main floor). It is allowed to have your laptop with you in there, but please turn off the key sound. In addition to the 30 seats there are 2 comfortable armchairs in the quiet study room.

if there is a group project at issue, we have 31 Group study rooms to choose from. All our group study rooms are bookable. Some group study rooms has computers and some not. When you book a group study room there is information about the room under Room No. It’s fairly small text but it is there.

On the 4th floor we have a room called the Studio.  This room is a resource room with customized computers for students with a disability or illiteracyTo be able to book the Studio, you have to either contact the Coordinator for students with disabilities or the dyslexia educator, since you need a tag with special access. 

There are plenty of computers at the library. It rarely happens that all our computers are taken. We have several computers on the 2nd floor and then there is also a computer room on the 3rd floor with a the printer near at hand.

The positive aspect of our library is that you actually get to bring coffee (with lid) in the library. You may also eat fruit and candy inside the library, but when it comes to food, we have a lunch lounge just outside the library which we refer to.
