Did you know that in Linna library there is a wide variety of study spaces available to you? When you come to the Library, choose a suitable seat and concentrate on studying. You can read or use your laptop or tablet in the University’s wireless networks.
On all three floors of Linna library you can find different kinds of study spaces.
You can e.g. sit on a comfortable armchair near the windows on the 2nd floor or
withdraw to a sheltered sofa in multipurpose space Pohjantähti on the 1st floor,
or you can work in a healthy manner standing at an adjustable table.
Computers are available in Linna’s Learning Center on the 3rd floor and
on the same floor in the three clasrooms when they are not occupied by teaching. The classrooms Alma and Akseli are intended for silent working, but in Elina you can also work together if necessary, using low voice. Color signs guide the use of different spaces.
The most silent working space in Linna is Silent Reading Room on the 2nd floor. It is available for the University students 24/7. You can use laptop or tablet in the larger area of the Reading Room, but the glass-walled area is reserved only for readers. When the Library is open you enter the Reading Room via a separate staircase from the main lobby of Linna building. At other times use the side door situated opposite the Finnish Student Health Service building using your key card.
Studying is often lonely, but luckily there is group work.
You can do group work in Linna in five group work rooms that you book in your Office365 calendar (see booking instructions) or in the three rooms that are open for flexible use. Of these three in Rokka and Koskela there is room even for two groups at the same time.
You can study together also in Linna’s multipurpose spaces, Pentinkulma (3rd floor), Pohjantähti (1st floor) and
now also in Idea that is located beside the building’s main lobby. In Idea there are occasionally also some events. With your group you can use Idea’s interactive screen when needed.
In the Library the information resources and our specialists are near. You can always ask us, both in the Library and online.
