The library services – Learn, work & research

Welcome, first year students!

We wish you a great start into the winter semester 2022/2023!
All important links to our services are compiled on this page.

First steps

The most important thing in advance: If you want to borrow books or use our printers, you first need to activate your Leuphana Card:

  • Step 1: Fill out the online registration.
  • Step 2: Activate the card at the service desk in the library foyer.

Please note that you cannot currently use the main entrance of the library due to construction work (see map).
All other important information for the first steps can be found further down the page.
