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. Throughout autumn semester 2021, renovation is underway in the Learning Space area of the University Library.
The study environment Learning Space is expanding and developing
Throughout the autumn semester of 2021, we are renovating the facilities in the University Library where Learning Space, the Academic Resource Centre and the text book collection were located. The entire area will be closed during refurbishment.
On the maps below, you can see the specific areas of the library that will be affected by construction and renovation.
Second floor - entrance level
A welcoming study environment for students
The aim of the refurbishment is to create a welcoming study environment where students’ needs are essential. It will be effortless to study together here or to just take a break and hang out.
In the new refurbished Learning Space you will find:
More group study spaces and group rooms.
A range of both study- and meeting spaces to support your studies, furnished with for example standing tables, armchairs and sofas.
Space for lectures and workshops in information searching and academic writing.
More functional bookshelves for text books.
The Idea box for creative breaks with Lego and board games.
A water bottle refill station.
Grand opening in early 2022
The official opening for the new Learning Space is scheduled for early 2022. A more exact date will be announced. You are welcome to attend!
Study spaces during the construction period
As usual, you will find study spaces in the Study hall, above the entrance area and on the Balcony. In addition, the reading rooms and the group study rooms located on the third floor above the Learning Space, will be open throughout the refurbishment. You will find the entrance to these study spaces if you go up one floor from the Lindell Hall by the entrance to the Humanities building. Follow the signs from the library entrance.
Be prepared for noise disturbances in the reading rooms during the refurbishment. Earplugs are available at the temporary entrance.
Materials from stack 4 must be ordered
The entrance to stack 4 will be blocked during the refurbishment. Additionally, the leaflet collection previously located in stack 4 will be placed in a closed stack. Contact the staff if you need materials from the leaflet collection or stack 4.
