Address & visit

Our library is situated in the city centre, next to Theater Freiburg and opposite Kollegiengebäude I.

You can get here on foot, by bike or on the tram (get off at the “Stadttheater” stop). If you are driving, you can park in the nearby car parks. There are parking spaces on Milchstraße that can be used if you have a disabled parking permit.

The bicycle garage will remain closed until further notice due to Corona-related restrictions.

Accessible library Access for wheelchair users and people with visual impairments

Wheelchair access

People in wheelchairs can access the ground floor of the University Library via the revolving doors at the entrances on Platz der Universität and on Milchstraße. Press the designated button on the revolving doors to make them wheelchair accessible.

All floors can be accessed via the lift. The central lifts can be directly called for your use using a Euro key. They feature a user-friendly, lowered and embossed keypad designed specifically for people in wheelchairs.

People with visual impairments

Library users with visual impairments can access the University Library via the door in Café Libresso. A tactile guidance system on the ground shows visitors the way from the door of Café Libresso to the information counter on the ground floor.

The canteen door is freely accessible when Café Libresso’s outdoor space is open. Outside of these hours, an appointment must be made with information service staff. We are happy to wait for you at the canteen door in that case.

Blind and visually impaired members of the University of Freiburg and cooperating higher education institutions can receive a key card to gain access to the University Library. Please contact for more information.

We are also happy to offer blind and visually impaired library users a private guided tour to familiarise them with the University Library site. To arrange a tour, please contact
