Corona: Borrowing service of the UCL and libraries on campus

Here you can see which libraries are open - whether UCL or campus libraries.

Please note:

  • In all libraries of the University of Cologne you have to wear a mouth and nose protection!
  • If you have a certificate of exemption from the obligation to wear a mask, you must always carry it with you and show it on request. Instead of the mask you must then wear a visor.
  • Please only visit us when you feel healthy!
