Relax Zone

Ground Floor


Main Relax Zone

Get cosy on several sofas and armchairs. This space is designated for taking a break or chatting with friends. You might as well use it for playing board games borrowed at the desk or even your own. Talking is not prohibited, but we kindly ask for being considerate towards other library users. Feel free to use cosy cushions or duvets.

Entrance Hall

Get refreshed with snack or drink from the vending machines in the entrance hall. Have a rest on sofas or work in team at the large desk. Please note that it is not possible to use in-house loans or any books that are not registered to your reader’s account here.

Kitchenette & Dining Area

Warm up your food in the microwave or use the kettle to make coffee or tea. Do the dishes in the sink and feel welcome to use dish detergent, cups, glasses or cutlery. Cutlery may also be borrowed with ISIC at the circulation desk.

Tables adjoining the kitchenette are perfect for dining, as well as for group or self-study. Plug your laptop to sockets located on the wooden seating by the wall.


Warm months and fair weather invite you to the outdoor atrium. Enter from the entrance hall and enjoy sitting in the fresh air. Currently the atrium is planned for reconstruction. Please note it is not possible to bring in-house documents or other documents that are not registered to your reader’s account.
