From Monday to Friday the tables are cleaned daily before the reading rooms open. On weekends, every user is asked to clean the reading desk on their own using the cleaning agents provided.


The manuscript reading room, the information centre, the library card office, the group work rooms and the MultiMediaCentre are still not open to the public.


In contrast to the regular opening hours on campus, the reading rooms Recht 1 and Wirtschaft are open until midnight on weekdays. The entrances to the building Recht 1 and Wirtschaft will therefore also remain open until 24:00h.
