The Reading Room is divided into two sections, the Main Reading Room and the Silent Reading Room.
In the Main Reading Room there are 200 working spaces, of which 20 are equipped with library computers (thinclients and ZEDAT PCs).
In addition, there are seven study carrels.
Users can bring their own mobile devices; most desks are equipped with electric sockets. Wireless LAN or LAN connections are available for Freie Universität Berlin members and eduroam participants.
Mobile phones must be turned off. Water in transparent bottles is allowed.
The Silent Reading Room is the quietest room in the Library. Computers should not be brought to this room.
The Reading Room is air-conditioned.
Teachers can select important sources for their courses; these titles will then be temporarily located in the reading room and be excluded from loan.
