As period 4 kicks off, let’s have a quick look at the different study places in the Forum Library. From group study rooms for collaborative projects to comfortable study pods for individual focus, with its varied layout, the Library always has a study place to meet your needs.

Individual study places

In the Library, you can find 650 individual study places with height-adjustable chairs. Places across the open globe are the most popular, so you have to be on time when you want one of those. The study places on the 4th floor need to be reserved in TimeEdit. All other study places are walk-ins.

Choose your spot, depending on your need or task.

On the 3rd and 4th floor, you can find 110 study places with a monitor. The 3rd floor also has some high tables with 10 bar stools. These tables are handy if you need to use atlases or other large materials. The 2nd floor has height-adjustable sit-standing tables. Twenty study places on the 2nd floor are equipped with a desktop computer.

Group study rooms

The four group study rooms are perfect for working together on a project or assignment. Unfortunately, you cannot reserve the group rooms. Use is on a first come, first serve basis. Because the Library is often full during the self-study and exam weeks, the group rooms at these times may only be used for individual study. You can find the group study rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors in the corners of the building.

Laptop seats and focus pods

Throughout the Library, you'll find benches with small tables for your laptop. While not ideal for long cramming sessions, they are handy when you require a spot to study for a short bit, for example, between classes.

For extra focus & comfort, you can use one of the two focus pods on the 3rd and 4th floor.

Time to relax

On the 2nd floor, we’ve set up a relaxing corner with beanbags. This area also has a reading table where you can read a newspaper or a magazine, a chess table and a book swap shelf.
