The Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) – German National Library of Science and Technology offers facilities tailored to your different needs: group study rooms for shared learning, quiet reading desks for individual learning, as well as sufficient space to enjoy a well-earned break. A total of around 1,700 reading desks are available at the library’s five sites.
That said, reading desks are in high demand in the weeks leading up to exams, meaning that there may not be enough spaces available at peak times. Especially in the morning hours there are frequent conglomerations, which is why we recommend a visit to the library after 18:00 during this period.
In the case of a high number of visitors to our locations, we can also recommend other attractive learning facilities, such as the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Library – the State Library of Lower Saxony (GWLB).
- Wireless LAN access (eduroam)
- Group study rooms
- Individual workplaces for a quiet working environment
- Study cubicles
- Access to Beck-Online

Leibniz Universität Hannover also offers additional workplaces on campus. You will find an overview on the new learning room map. There you can also see, for example, which equipment is available in the learning rooms and which rooms can be booked.
Another piece of advice: please remember to place a break disc on your reading desk before taking a break. By providing this option, we seek to ensure fair play. Occupied reading desks that have been left temporarily without a break disc may be cleared at any time.
