Book rooms at the library

For certain activities, different rooms can be booked in the library. Here you can find out how to make a booking and the rules that apply.

There are also rooms within the library that are not part of the library's operations. These are booked through KTH's central room booking system , similar to other rooms at KTH. This includes spaces such as the reading/conference room Ångdomen, as well as the halls/group rooms Lavoisier, Lallerstedt, Hjärne, Rinman, Maxwell, and Salongen.

General information about booking a room

You can learn more about the guidelines for booking rooms at KTH Library on the page Premises at KTH Library .

For all rooms, it is required that the scheduled activity is connected to KTH or deemed to have societal relevance (such as the Electoral Authority). Please note that the library reserves the right to determine whether a booking can be approved or rejected, based on our need for the rooms and whether students have exam periods. The underlying principle is that events should not disrupt regular operations.

Book events in the Library Hall

Book group rooms

KTH students have the option to book one of the library's twelve group rooms  or use one of the three non-bookable group rooms behind Ångdomen – rooms 12, 13, and 14. There is also a bookable resource room  for students with certificates from Funka support .

If you want to book multiple group rooms for an event, please contact biblioteket@kth.se to explore options and pricing. A maximum of 6 group rooms for up to 6 hours each day can be booked.

You must always obtain approval before filming or photographing in the library's premises. Send an inquiry to biblioteket@kth.se. We need the following information to assess your booking request:

  • Who are you, and do you have a connection to KTH?
  • Contact person
  • What is the purpose of the filming/what will the material be used for?
  • Date
  • Time
  • Duration

  • Will the library's operations be affected? Will any of the library's visitors appear in the images? If yes, how do you plan to obtain their consent?

Good to know

Please note that when you're done with your event, the room should be restored to its original state and look as it did when you arrived.

The library does not provide technical equipment. If you need technical equipment or Wi-Fi, please contact it-support@kth.se. The library also does not provide any furniture beyond what is already in the room, and furniture must not be taken from other parts of the library.
