Learning and Working

During the opening hours the library provides PC workstations and individual desks. The PC workstations are equipped with office and image editing software, and internet access. Saving on a USB stick is possible. Four standing-desk PC-workplaces are reserved for a quick search of the catalog and other information on the website.

If no workplaces of the library are vacant, students may resort to the workstations on the 1st floor (south side), to the computer pools and to workstations in the Campus Tower.

The rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi so you can connect your own computer to the internet (further information about WLAN and VPN).

Use of the licensed e-books, e-journals and databases at HCU library is possible on all PCs and in so far as the licenses allow this, also outside the HCU network via VPN access.

For copying, printing and scanning, there are four scanners and two multifunctional devices available. The multifunctional devices can be used via the HCU-Card, guests should contact the staff at the service desk.

For the duration of library use, you may leave your bags and jackets in our lockers for free.

In order to create a quiet working atmosphere, we ask you to transfer intensive group work and discussions to the different areas of learning and working of the University.
