Group Work Rooms on Level 7 of the Central Library

The group workstations are located above the General Reading Room (up the spiral staircase!) on level 7. Map of the Central Library. URwalking

In the red, blue and green rooms, students can work together in small groups at any time. In each group work room there are four groups of tables, which are separated from each other by dividing screens. The group work rooms offer a total of 56 workstations, plus benches.

In the blue and red room there is a wall monitor for each group of students, where they can collaborate on documents. Simply bring your own equipment (laptops, tablets etc.) with you!

In the green room there are permanently installed computers. Of course, you can also bring your own devices here.

When furnishing the rooms, great emphasis was placed on ergonomic, health-oriented equipment. In all three rooms there are swivel chairs with a 3-D rocker mechanism, which promote active sitting. In the green room, there are also two height-adjustable tables which ensure barrier-free access (the rooms can be reached by lift).

The group work rooms can be used from Monday to Friday from 08:00h to 20:00h and on Saturday from 09:00h to 18:00h. Reservations or registrations are not necessary.
