Prepare for a year with limited study spaces

Do you know that we are renovating next year, making room for more and better study spaces? The coming year will be noisy with few study spaces. Studying at UB will be inconvenient during the renovation, but the result will be worth it.

During the Christmas holidays, we close UB and move upstairs. In January, we welcome you to floor three. The library will operate there during the renovation.

Entry on the east side of the building

You will use the entrance door on the building's east side during the renovation. The entrance is opposite the Centre for Languages and Literature (SOL). On 8 January 2024, we will open the new entryway.

Few study spaces

We are renovating the entrance and first floors. So, we will have limited study spaces to offer you. Only the Wallengren reading room and the third floor will be open for study.

Stay up to date on renovating UB 

We may need to close at short notice during the renovation. Keep an eye on the page so you get all the essential information.

Hope to see you at UB next year – despite the noise and lack of study spaces!
