Permanently changed opening hours of the Central Library

From Thursday 2 May 2019 on, the Central Library will be open regularly from Monday to Friday from 8:00 to 24:00. Weekend opening hours will remain unchanged from 9:00 to 22:00.
All students can still use the Learning and Study Building from 7:00 to 1:00 by prior reservation.

Since April 2007, the extended opening hours have been financed by University Quality Funds. These funds are awarded by the Study Quality Commission (SQC), in which students also have a say. The SQC has asked the Göttingen State and University Library for possibilities for savings. After an evaluation of the current number of visitors, the SQC agreed to the proposal of the Göttingen State and University Library to shorten the opening hours of the Central Library. The measure will now be implemented.
