Workplaces and Equipment
LUL offers a large number of desks in different learning and working environments in its locations. From 1 October 2021 a 3G proof is required to enter the library buildings. You are free to choose your seat, no prior seat booking is necessary anymore. At the desk, the mask can be removed if the minimum distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained. For digital contact tracing we use the free Corona-Warn-App, the libraries are equipped with corresponding QR codes.
Computer workplaces are available in all branch libraries. Due to divergent infrastructure different kinds of logins have to be considered.
Combination of library number and associated password. It is necessary to change the default password in your library account in order to use our computer workplaces. About an hour after changing it, logging in should be feasible. Please mind that after a replacement of your library card or reset to default password a new one has to be set.
Identifier assigned by the University Computer Centre to all university members. Further information can be found on the page about the Uni-login.
