Need a Library Card?

To get a Library Card, international students need to fill out a special application form online. Once the card is ready, it can be picked up at the circulation desk. 

Need a place to study?

On 3rd and 4th floor you can find quiet space for individual study. The 2nd floor is suitable for conversation and group work. In addition to that we have a few study rooms for groups that you can reserve online
