Changes in the library facilities

The library facilities are being refurbished in order to better suit our users’ needs and to better accommodate our growing collections. Here you will find information about current projects.

UB Arts Campus moves into new premises  

From 14 November 2022 to 9 January 2023, UB Arts Campus will be closed while the library moves to new, larger premises. During this period, you will not be able to borrow books located on the Arts Campus.  

The aim of the new library facilities is to foster creation and creativity through collaborations, meetings and knowledge sharing between students, staff and external actors. The move means that the library will increase from 100 sqm to 400 sqm. In the new premises you will find

  • three bookable group study rooms
  • 44 study places
  • a resource room
  • a space for lectures and workshops
  • a journal room with reading areas
  • space for recreation
  • resting room
  • ITS support.

 We look forward to welcoming you to our new premises on 9 January!  

The stacks will be refurbished and expanded

In the autumn of 2021, a major refurbishment of the University Library's stacks began. The renovations aim to create more space for the library's growing collections. This will happen in the first step of the refurbishment:

  • The premises under Learning Space will be converted into a new large public stack.
  • The premises under the library entrance area will be converted into two new closed stacks.

Be prepared for noise disturbances in different parts of the University Library during the refurbishment.

Materials from closed stacks must be requested

Some of our collections will not be publicly available during the refurbishment. Find information about where books and journals are located in the library search tool. Please contact the staff if you need to request materials from the closed stacks.
