Reservable Group Study Spaces in the Central Library

How it works

To reserve a group study room or a workbay, two group members (TU or UdK students only) will have to log in with their personal library account one after the other.

  • TU students log in with their TUB-Account.
  • UdK students log in with their library card number and password.

  1. Pre-reservation: Student no. 1 logs in, clicks on a free time slot, selects the exact length of time and enters the user name of student no. 2. Log out!
  2. Reservation: Student no. 2 logs in, clicks on the pre-booked (light blue) time slot and changes the pre-reservation into a proper reservation via "Vormerkung bestätigen". Log out!
  3. Cancelling a reservation: Student 1 or student 2 logs in, clicks on the reserved time slot und deletes the reservation.
  4. Proof of reservation: You can print out a confirmation of your reservation by clicking on the reserved (dark blue) time slot and then on "Beleg drucken". The group study rooms and workbays are left unlocked, you will not need a key.
