Extended opening hours

Outside of regular opening hours, KI students and KI staff can use the libraries services and premises in Solna and Flemingsberg every day, 7:00-22:00. All you need is your KI card (and PIN code). Please note that the KI card is mandatory when staying after hours.

About the KI card/access badge

All information about KI cards for students can be found on the page KI cards for students

All information about KI cards / access cards for employees can be found on the page Access cards / badge

Please note that access is ruled by your course start date, which means that if you are a new student who collected your KI card before the semester began, you will still only have access on the first day your courses start. 

How does it work?

Using your KI card (and PIN code), access the library premises every day 7:00 - 22:00, including public holidays. Library staff is not present after regular opening hours. Security guards will be on campus and can be reached by phone (their contact number will be clearly visible in the library). Security guards cannot help you with any library questions or issues. With your KI card, you can borrow and return books in our self-service machines.

In Flemingsberg you enter and exit through the door next to the regular entrance.

In Solna, enter the building through Berzelius väg 3 or 9, go to the staircase next to the bookstore, then walk or take the elevator up one floor to floor 3. Once you have reached floor 3, enter using your KI card and PIN. Study places can be found at many places in the library. Books are mainly to your left.

How does it work for public users (not affiliated with KI)?

You are welcome to visit the library during our regular opening hours. Only visitors with a KI card may stay at the premises after regular opening hours. If you want to return books when the library is closed, use the book-drops near the entrances.

What happens if you need help?

During extended hours, the library operates on a self-service basis. There are many guides and tips on our website, for example on printing and copying.

Should the self-checkout machines not work, instructions on what to do are posted nearby.

What happens if you have forgotten your KI card?

The KI card is the key to visiting the library during the extended hours. If you have forgotten your card, you will not be able to to use the premises.

What happens if you have forgotten your PIN number for your KI card?

Students can quickly and easily change their PIN through KIPAS using their student account login (you need to be connected to the KI wifi Eduroam in order to access the site).
