Study places

KTH Library is a public library that is open to everyone. Some of our services are only for students and staff at KTH, but everyone is welcome to visit our libraries and study in our beautiful premises.

The Main Library at KTH Campus offers many different study spaces so you can choose what suits you. Most study spaces are equipped with power outlets for laptops.

Our library is a popular study spot. If you need to leave your spot for a short while, you can use our parking discs to reserve your spot (maximum 1 hour). You can also see the occupancy status in real-time  to find available spots.

Please note that there is a ban on food in the entire library except for the Entrance Hall. Drinks with lids are okay.
