Ubikampus @ Kumpula
The library’s facility upgrade project is connected with a broader project that involves the Faculty of Science and the University’s Student Services. What is taking place in the space is the first pilot of the Ubikampus project.
The 1,000 square meter pilot premises of the Ubikampus project house altogether 168 workstations and 16 separate rooms bookable with the tablets situated at the doors. More than half of the space is reserved for students, the rest for researchers. Students’ facilities include reading places and group study rooms.
Arrangements on the second floor are still in progress, but you are welcome to check out and test new facilities!
The Kumpula Campus Library will open on Monday 3 September, 2018: The first floor will be available with its collections, facilities and services from Monday, but the second floor continues to be closed for renovation until the end of October.
Note these changes on the 1st 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.
