Need a place to study?

On 3rd and 4th floor you can find quiet place to study. The 2nd floor is suitable for conversation and group work. In addition to that we have a few study rooms for groups that can be reserved online. Graduate students working on their final theses can also apply for a reading room. Find further information here.

Some e-sources are only available to students and staff of UI. To connect to the University Network off campus a VPN connection is necessary. Help is available at the IT Help Desk at Háskólatorg.
