For the safe storage of your other belongings there are 146 lockers on G floor, most of them with power plugs.

Lockers outside in the lobby, to the right and left of the entrance, can be reserved for the entire semester. Lockers are rented to students from the departments of D-CHAB, D-BIOL, and D-MATL. The locker keys are registered on your library account. A registration on Swisscovery is therefore required in order to use this service. Here you can find instructions to register with Swisscovery. Please also take note of current information which will be announced via Facebook, on the information screen at the entrance, and on our website.

Lockers located inside the library can be used for one day only and need to be cleared in the evening when the Information Center closes.

Larger objects such as musical instruments can be deposited at the Infodesk.

Group Rooms

Would you like to work as a group? Five flipchart equipped group rooms are available for students of the departments D-CHAB, D-BIOL and D-MATL on the J floor in the Information Center. These can be reserved at the Infodesk. If you would like to use the group rooms during the semester break, you can reserve them in advance, usually immediately before the start of the semester break. Please note the information on the info display, on this website and on our social media channels.
