Group Study Rooms

How do I reserve a group study room or workbay?

To reserve a room, two TU or UdK students (student 1 and student 2) must successively sign in with their personal login.

  • TU students should log in with their TUB account.
  • UdK students should log in with their library card number (example: UdK123456789) and password.
  1. Pre-reservation: Student 1 logs in, selects an available time frame, chooses the exact time they wish to use the room, and enters student 2’s ID number. Logout.
  2. Reservation: Student 2 logs in and clicks on the pre-reserved time (in light green) and on "verify" to change the pre-reservation to a reservation. Logout.
  3. Cancellation: Student 1 or 2 logs in, clicks on their booked time, and deletes the reservation.

All rooms and workbays are always unlocked, so that you do not need to collect a key first.
