Library and IT

We will happily provide you with a library card, internet access on campus, as well as a card for the cafeteria.

If you would like to take advantage of any of these services please send us an e-mail and we will take care of it.

The main library on campus is the Universitäts- und Stadtbibliothek der Universität zu Köln (USB). In addition to that there are several libraries hosted by the different institutes. Usually you can only borrow books from the main library; at the institutes you can often use the books only in the library.

To find the book you are looking for you can use the websites of the USB or the KUG (which is the entire catalogue of literature available in the library). By searching through these databases you will find the availability of books as well as their position in the library or where to pick them up. With your account number and personal password you are able to order books online. Those books can be picked up the next day after 2 pm in the “Selbstabholbereich” on the 1st floor of the main library.

We will be glad to help you receive an IT-account of the UoC. It will grant you access to the internet (campus wifi) and the advantages of the university network, such as the library databases. You may also use the university’s computer labs. Please contact us in order to arrange for an UoC account on your behalf.
