This post is also available in: Finnish, Swedish

The Kumpula Campus Library was closed on 21 May – 2 September due to renovation. The first floor will be available with its collections, facilities and services from Monday, 3 September, but the second floor continues to be closed for renovation until the end of year 2018.

Library’s facility upgrade project in co-operation with the Faculty and the Student Services

The library’s facility upgrade project is connected with 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 a space approximately half of the current area on the second floor.

  • Printed collections that was previously on the second floor has been moved to the first floor so in the future both textbooks and other materials can be found on the first floor.
  • The Examinarium electronic exam room has moved from the library to Chemicum (first floor, room A122).
  • New self-service loan and return station is located next to the library entrance.
  • Former group work room G108d has been turned into a silent reading room. In other words, there are two silent reading rooms next to each other at back corner of the floor.
  • There are now four group work rooms on the first floor: G108a, G103c, G103e and G103g. Remember to reserve the group work room using your O365 calendar. Reservations are not taken at the library service desk.
  • The former staff area on the left side of the entrance is now a group work area, which can be used without booking. Textbooks and reference books that may not be checked out are also located in this area.

The second floor is still closed

The space vacated by the Campus Library on the second floor will be taken over by the Faculty of Science research staff. The plan is to use the facilities that will remain as part of the library also for new kinds of student services and special examination rooms.

The second floor of the Kumpula Campus Library is still closed in September, as the renovation will continue there until the end of year 2018.

Printed collections that was previously on the second floor has been moved to the first floor and are available there from Monday, 3 September, onwards.

Faculty of Science personnel’s 24h access to the Kumpula campus library ended on 18 May, 2018. From now on, the library’s facilities are available to faculty staff during opening hours.
