Roof Refurbishment at the Main Campus

Until the end of October 2014, the flat roof above the reading room at the Branch Library Main Campus is being refurbished. The State Construction Authority and the TUM's Property Management have informed that all users of the building have to cope occasionally with noise and dirt during the constructional measurement.

By now, we already experienced water damages on the second floor at our mobile shelving sections. These areas are now closed off, most books and journals located there will not be available until mid-August.

The roof refurbishment is not linked to our own construction works at the Branch Library Main Campus. Please understand that we do not have any influence on the planning and the progress of the roof works. However, we provide ear plugs for all noise-plagued library visitors.

It's reconstruction time!

To be able to offer you a great number and variety of well-equipped work and reading places, we will expand and remodel the reading room at our Branch Library Main Campus. We aim at:

  • creating 100 new work and study places
  • establishing group study rooms
  • providing a calmer reading room atmosphere
  • improving air-conditioning and technical infrastructure

The construction works will start at the end of April 2014 and are expected to be completed by mid-2015. Preparatory works and relocations will already start at Easter 2014.

In particular we plan:

In the upcoming months, modern library facilities with an up-to-date technical infrastructure, more than 100 study areas, several group working rooms and extensive opening hours will be created here.

During the renovation time, all books and current journal volumes are freely accessible at the Branch Library Mechanical Engineering. Back volumes could be requested via the Online Catalogue OPAC. Library staff will have those items ready for collection at the branch library you have chosen. If you need any assistance please let us know.
