Library locations & opening hours

All faculties at the University of Bayreuth are assigned to a specific departmental library. All print and media materials are accessible to users, i.e. they may be removed from the shelves. The individual departmental libraries are usually located in close proximity to the other geographical entities of the faculty. Their exact location can be found on the Library Plan (see below).
