New to the library? 1. Library Card

If you want to use the University Library, either to borrow media or as a workspace, you need a library card. You can then use the books on campus or at home.

This card is free of charge for students of the TUHH. However, you must first apply for it on our website before you can come to the library in person to pick it up. The registration is best done from home.

The back of the library card shows the bardcode and the card-number.

You can pick up your library card after registering at the ServicePoint in the university library on Mon-Thu 9am-7pm, Fridays until 6 pm. Please bring the following with you:

  • identity card or passport including confirmation of registration
  • Student ID (or certificate of enrolment or confirmation of enrolment or HVV semester ticket)

A valid email address is very important for your notifications – for example for the reminder emails at the end of the loan period!

With your library card you can log on to our website and view your account. There you will get an overview of your current loans and reservations. You can also extend the loan periods up to eight times if you still need the books.

Currently, the library card also serves to register your stay in the library. Students at the TUHH can reserve a desk for certain times. Without a reservation, a visit to the library is limited to 20 minutes.
