Workplaces and Equipment

Please note that desks must be booked in advance if you are planning to work in the library. Desks can be booked on seats.ub.uni-leipzig.de. You’ll need your library membership number and password.

Fair play when booking workplaces

In the interests of all users, please only book periods which you will actually use and cancel reservations if need be. If you decide to leave early, please free up your desk for others by cancelling it, or notify the library staff via chat, ticket or personally at the service desk – otherwise no one else will be able to use it. We reserve the right to allocate unoccupied desks to other users.
