Vaihingen Location

  • For the Vaihingen location, the usual loan modalities apply again.
  • It is not necessary to reserve the study spaces.
  • FFP2 masks mandatory in the entire library: An air particle measurement has shown that the ventilation situation is not optimal. We have therefore decided, in consultation with the University management, to impose a FFP2 mask requirement for all visitors to the library during their entire stay on our premises. This regulation is covered by the University's house rules.

City Center Location

  • Beginning June 20, 2022, learning spaces may again be offered in the City Center, transitionally in the lecture hall and the exhibit area to the right in the lobby.
  • It is not necessary to reserve the study spaces.
  • FFP2 masks mandatory in the entire library: An air particle measurement has shown that the ventilation situation is not optimal. We have therefore decided, in consultation with the University management, to impose a FFP2 mask requirement for all visitors to the library during their entire stay on our premises. This regulation is covered by the University's house rules.
  • The collection of ordered media is now possible again with self-checkout during the entire opening hours, the return at the temporary loan desk in the foyer or at the guard service as well. Study spaces and workspaces are available to a limited extent.

It is still not possible to open the reading rooms due to construction work and building-related technical problems. You can find information on the problematic situation of the University Library buildings on our new BAU-BLOG (DE).

Please note: All items from the Open Shelves areas, the Closed Stacks, and the Open Stacks (City Center location) must be requested via the catalog. Direct access to the shelves at City Center is not possible.

  • External users can reserve a library computer at both locations via a booking system
  • Borrowed items can be renewed up to 5 times, provided there is no hold (as before, only 10 days before the loan period expires, of course).
  • The electronic services of the University Library are available to members and affiliates of the University via remote access under the usual conditions.
  • The Campus Delivery Service LEA is available to students and employees of the University.

The University Library can also be reached via the "Ask a Librarian" web form. Questions regarding dissertation submission can be emailed to publikationsdienste@ub.uni-stuttgart.de or called in (+49 711 685-83512). Inquiries will be answered as promptly as possible.
