Apply for a single study room (carrel) in the Central Library

Application period

The deadline for single study room (carrel) applications has ended.

The application period for the 4th quarter of 2022 (October to December) will start in mid-August 2022. You will then also find a reminder of this in our News.

Requirements for a single study room (carrel) application:

  • You have a library card
  • You are a TU Berlin or UdK Berlin student
  • You are writing your Diplom, Staatsexamen, bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, or Habilitation thesis

Allocation of single study rooms (carrels)

Because applications frequently exceed the single study rooms (carrels) available, all single study rooms (carrels) are awarded in a lottery draw. All applicants will be informed of the results by email.

Four of the 16 single study rooms (carrels) are reserved for TU Berlin and UdK Berlin students with a disability ID or receiving academic adjustments.

You must submit proof that you are writing a thesis when you collect the key to the single study room (carrel). Confirmation from your supervisor including a signature, TU Berlin or UdK Berlin letterhead, and a stamp is sufficient. You may also present confirmation from the Examination Office.

Features: Desk, swivel chair, monitor, bookshelf, corkboard
