Our ambition is to satisfy a variety of needs with respect to study facilities. There are many open spaces for students to work individually or in groups, but there are also a lot of halls and rooms intended for specific purposes. The library offers extended opening hours for students and KI staff. This means you can enter the library before and after regular hours with your KI card.
Group study rooms
There are a number of group study rooms in both Solna and Flemingsberg that can be booked by KI students and doctoral students for group work. You will find 14 rooms in Solna (and one resource room) and 20 rooms in Flemingsberg (and one resource room). Working alone in a group study room is not permitted as there are plenty of places for individual study in the library. You can read more about the rules that apply when booking a room.
Group study rooms are equipped with a whiteboard, computer and a large screen to in order to aid tasks within a group. Whiteboard pens can be borrowed from the baskets in the course book room.
Bear in mind that group study rooms are popular - plan and make your booking well in advance. Please cancel any booking you do not intend to use. You can't book or cancel via library staff, you manage all your bookings through the website.
Book group rooms outside of the library
Silent reading rooms
There are silent reading rooms for those who want to work completely undisturbed. Specific rules apply in the silent reading rooms; you may not talk or use a computer, but tablets without keyboards are allowed. The rule of thumb is that it should be completely silent in the silent reading rooms.
Please read our blog post about the quiet study areas and the thoughts behind them.
There are 4 computer rooms in Solna and 4 in Flemingsberg where students can study. Some of them are teaching rooms and may at times be booked by teachers.
Resource rooms are specially equipped rooms for you with some form of reading difficulty. In order to use the room, you must first have a certificate from the coordinator in Student Affairs. These rooms contain two computers that run special software and magnification equipment. The computers run software for speech synthesis, magnification, advanced spell-checking, language dictionary, etc.
Torget, available both in Solna and Flemingsberg, is a public venue suitable for a variety of events. KI students and staff may book Torget free of charge, but all events must be free, non-commercial, and open to all. Furthermore, the events should in some way relate to KI's activities.
You may not eat hot food in the library as this can disturb other visitors. Please take away your dishes and throw away your trash.
Always ensure that you respect other students and talk in a normal tone.
