Corona: Borrowing service of the UCL and libraries on campus

Here you can find which libraries at the University of Cologne - UCL as well as libraries on campus - will restart borrowing.
Due to the cyber attack, not all of our services are yet available again.

  • Please note: In all libraries of the University of Cologne you have to wear a mouth and nose protection!
  • Please make your stay with us as short as possible. In doing so, you will help us to enable many students to borrow books.
