Campus libraries

The University of Freiburg boasts the University Library as the central library establishment alongside the University Medical Center’s libraries as well as other institute, department, specialised and faculty libraries. Together, they make up Freiburg’s library system.

Access to campus libraries for university members

Some of the specialist libraries can be used by students and staff of the University of Freiburg without prior registration. Other subject libraries can be visited after prior registration via e-mail or telephone reservation.

Please inform yourself about access conditions and opening hours in the list of libraries/index of library identifiers (see below).

The current CoronaVO allows the use of the campus libraries from 18 August 2021 only to vaccinated, recovered or tested users. Please present for access to the campus libraries the following proofs:

  • A certificate of a daily (not older than 24 hours) negative antigen corona test from an official test provider (test centre, doctor's practice, or similar) or of a negative PCR test (not older than 48 hours)
  • or an official proof of recovery (an illness with Covid-19 was not more than 6 months ago)
  • or a complete proof of vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 (last vaccination at least 14 days ago).

To speed up the processes, we ask you to have the respective proof ready via a mobile phone app if possible.

The obligations to wear a medical mask, to leave contact details and to observe the distance rule (at least 1.50 metres) remain in place.

Index of library identifiers

Standard identifiers for libraries are written in the format “25/...” and “Frei ...”, where “...” is to be replaced with the identifier for the respective library. Identifiers for libraries outside of the region of Freiburg use a different format. You can find these identifiers at the end of the list.
