From April 1, the Library opens for Circulation from 2 to 8 pm

Update 31.03.2021
Due to nighttime curfew restrictions for Hamburg set today, the library will be open from 2-8 pm instead of 3-9 pm starting April 1.

Since March 2020, we have had to regularly adjust our opening hours and our on-site offerings. In doing so, we are following the regulations issued in Hamburg to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. This will protect you and us. The details are specified in the so-called Eindämmungsverordnung. For example, at this time we cannot offer jobs because libraries are only allowed to be open for “lending”. This will be in effect at least until April 18. Therefore, as of April 1, we are reducing our opening hours and will not open until 2 pm instead of 9 am as before.

Opening hours from April 1, 2021:

Opening Hours Lending & Return Servicepoint Information by Phone

The library will be closed for Easter from Good Friday (April 2) to Easter Monday (April 5).

Please observe the following rules when you visit:

    • Scan your library card at the entrance.

For your questions and concerns we are still available from 9 am – 5 pm. Call us at 040 42878-2845 or send an e-mail to bibliothek@tuhh.de.

Extended opening hours

September brings many new things for the tub.! We are extending our opening hours starting from 1.9.2020. The library opens Monday to Friday from 8am -2pm and 3 -9pm. The ServicePoint is open Monday to Friday from 9am- 2pm and 3 -7pm, Fridays until 6pm. Information via telephone or mail is available throughout the service hours, including 2pm -3pm.

Between 2pm and 3pm every day we close our doors for one hour so that all surfaces can be cleaned according to the hygiene regulations. During this time all users must clear their desks and leave the library.

Together with the extended opening hours, we will introduce a new system for desk-reservation on 1.9.2020. Due to the increased demand, the new reservation system is only available for TU students. Each student can make one reservation of up to six hours per day.

To log in to the system, you will need your library card number and password. Once logged in, new functions are available: You can easily check in the overview which desks are still available and then display all your appointments in a table. If you do not want to keep an appointment, you now have the possibility to edit or delete it yourself in your account. Just as before: If the reservation has not been claimed up to half an hour after the start of the appointment, it will be deleted automatically.

All appointments that were reserved in the old system for the days after 1.9.2020 will remain. This also applies to users who are not TU students.
