As of October 25, the entrance hall, the auditorium and the catalog hall in front of the circulation desk on the first floor will be reopened to the public.
The reading room and learning center will remain permanently closed.

Temporary study spaces in the University Library City Center
The library has made every effort to set up as many temporary study spaces as possible to at least partially replace the inaccessible spaces in the reading room and learning center.
