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

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). Depending on the progress of construction, we are trying to create at least a few workspaces in the City Center as well. However, this will certainly not be realizable before June.

Currently, the University of Stuttgart Library, City Center location, is only open for pickup and return of items. The collection of ordered items and the return of borrowed items is possible Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Saturday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., study spaces and workspaces are not available.

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 or called in (+49 711 685-83512). Inquiries will be answered as promptly as possible.
