Studying in the Library

  • Starting June 8th you will be able to book a time slot for studying and working in the Central Library and Law Library.
  • Use our booking system to book a time slot (up to 6 hours).
  • Booking a time slot is mandatory for studying and working in the Central Library and Law Library. You will not have access to a table otherwise.
  • Please note the following information, in particular the usage and booking regulations.

Framework conditions due to the corona pandemic


The current hygiene and distance regulations, which allow only a limited number of people in the buildings, enable only a reduced provision of learning and workplaces.


Framework conditions due to the current renovation measures in the Central Library


The hygiene and distance regulations would certainly allow a larger number of learning and working places in the Central Library, but these cannot be provided due to a comprehensive renovation measure. In the past, the climatic conditions in the reading rooms have often been the cause of complaints. Now the air conditioners are being replaced throughout the building and we look forward to offering you better working conditions with optimized climate conditions in the future. At present, however, the work affects the operation, so that currently only workplaces on the first floor and the third floor are available and noise pollution is expected to be there.


Usage and booking regulations

  • For the booking you need your university ID or the E-Number of your library card and your password.
  • Workplaces can be booked in the morning (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.), in the afternoon (1 p.m. to 4 p.m.) or in the evening (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) for up to 6 hours.
  • Bookable places are shown in green (Central Library) or in blue (Law Library), already booked places are shown in red.
  • Bookings can be made up to one week in advance.
  • The workplaces are consecutively numbered. Please take only the workplace you have booked. You can view the number at any time in the booking plan. After logging in, the workplace, you have booked and which is therefore highlighted in red, will have a blue frame.
  • If you want to clean the workplace before use, cleaning agents are available.
  • In the library it is compulsory to wear a mouth-nose cover. This may be taken off at the booked workplace. As soon as you leave the workplace, the mouth-nose cover must be worn again.
  • If you do not need a booked place after all, we ask you to cancel the booking in the interest of others. Places that are not used will expire 20 minutes after the start of the booking and are available for free use. The ULB reserves the right to exclude users from the booking in the event of repeated non-cancellation of booked seats.
