In the Library, there are various workplace facilities for studying.

There are silent areas for individual work in the Library. There are different types of workplaces on the ground floor: some have desktop computers while in others you can work with your own laptop or use the place for other silent work. On the top floor there are silent workplaces for individual work with your own laptop in Silencio, where entrance is available only with the magnetic key ("lutikka") and in the room 1478. To assure uninterrupted working conditions, there are electricity sockets available for laptops in both areas. Because the rooms are silent, the keyboard sounds must be turned off and all activity which causes noise must be avoided.
