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 reading desks on campus. For an overview, go to the Lernraum project website.
Another work room for students has also been created in the student residence at the Lodyweg site in a cooperation project undertaken by Hannover Student Services, Leibniz Universität and the Faculty of Humanities. In order to meet the students' request for more binding availability of group workplaces, it has been possible to book group workrooms via Stud. IP since 1 March 2017.
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.
