Individual study places with power outlets for laptops and wireless network access can be found in all parts of the library.
With a view down to the foyer and coffee bar, the tables with copper lamps and leather upholstered chairs (from the old Council Room in the Lucy Smith building) is a good alternative for those who work best outside sheltered study areas.
Two other areas have slightly more sheltered study places with desks, chairs and white-boards that can be moved about as needed.
In the reading corner, with a view to the Frederikke square, there are comfortable armchairs where you can read the latest issues of the most popular journals and fresh (Norwegian) newspapers.
In the "Hangar"
Half a floor up, in the large room with the information desk, there are different kinds of study places. There are 30 stationary PCs, desks among the shelves, a sofa group and study places along the walls.
On the second mezzanine
By the railings, with a view to the ground floor (Fægri’s foyer), you can find copies of the tables on the first mezzanine, with leather upholstered stools (but no copper lamps). There are study places among the shelves, and two old-fashioned quiet reading rooms with 30 and 40 places respectively.
In the Abel building
From the first mezzanine there is a passage to the Niels Henrik Abel building, where there is a room with high-backed sofas, and some fatboy cushion-chairs for the ultimate laid-back study environment.
Group study rooms
First and second mezzanine
Here, there are a total of 10 group rooms, each with capacity for four people. The group rooms have digital screens and whiteboards.
This area has three large group rooms, one suitable for wheel-chair users, and two with capacity for six people. These group rooms have touch screens and whiteboards.
