24h access to the Kumpula Campus Library to end on May 18th, 2018

Faculty of Science personnel’s 24h access to the Kumpula campus library to end on May 18th, 2018

Members of faculty personnel with access to Chemicum, Exactum, or Physicum at the Kumpula Campus have received also 24h access to the Campus Library, with a separate application.

The practice of granting the 24-hour access to the library will be discontinued and the access rights will be terminated on Friday May 18th, 2018. After the renovation, the library’s facilities are available to faculty staff during opening hours.

The Campus Library to undergo refurbishment

The Kumpula Campus Library will be closed for summer 2018 due to renovation. The last day the library will be open before the renovation is Friday, 18 May 2018.

The library’s facility upgrade project is part of a broader project that involves the Faculty of Science and the University’s Student Services. The library’s aim is to create a versatile and flexible learning environment on the first floor, as well as in the remaining space on the second floor (about half of the current area).

For further information about the schedule and the library services during the renovation, see page Kumpula 2018
