On the page Computers & IT you will find all the information related to KI's IT services, including wireless network and how to connect the student e-mail to your smartphone. At the library you will also find Student IT, a support function for student IT-related issues. 

Study facilities

The library offers various kinds of study facilities for different needs. You can read more about them on the page Study facilities. Other parts of the campus offers a variety of facilities, including ANA 23 (Alfred Nobels allé 23 in Flemingsberg) and House 75 (Solna).

Please note that the university library on Berzelius väg 7B in Solna will be closed from August 19 2019 to May/June 2020, due to renovation. Instead we are offering a temporary pop-up library in Solna (located on Floor 3 in House 75, Retzius väg 13B). Because the pop-up library has limited opening hours, you will have to plan your visit in advance. The library in Flemingsberg will be open as usual.
