3 great “Biblioteken”

I do not know how you feel guys about working at home. Personally, it has more to do with eating chips every 10 minutes and finally succumbing to the temptation of watching series in pyjamas than with learning fascinating but complex theories.

And guess what: these last (hard-working) weeks surprisingly turned out to be for me a great opportunity to do some… studious discoveries. I come back with good news from my quite retreat : 3 places are definitely worth studying in! (I would never have expected to say something like that one day, nor to write about such sexy a subject.)
So let’s have an overview of the delights that GU libraries offer to begin Autumn 3 on a good basis.


Handels Library

A plus: The impressive chandelier, and the amazing bay window.
Tip: On the first floor, you can seat just in front the bay window, enjoy the out-side life and the cosiness of confortable armchairs.
If you prefer to have an overview of the situation, just go upstairs: there are 3 different balconies. The last one is closed, making it the best place if you need complete silence to study. There, no sound of crumpled paper or no Erasmus student laughing because they are having a nervous breakdown (<- like me hihi).

Opening hours
Monday to Thursday: 8.30 AM to 8 PM
Friday: 8.30 AM to 7 PM
Saturday: 10 AM to 4 PM
/!\ Closed on Sunday

Where: Vasagatan 1 (Tram 2, Handelshögskolan)

Book collection: the subject fields of the School of Business, Economics and Law (Economics, business administration, law, statistics, economic history,…)

Social Science Library

A plus: The architecture of the building, and the global amazingly quite atmosphere. Basically, you enter Hogwarts. Have a look at every details, from the ceiling painting to the mural art work.
Tip: You can seat in front of some windows, to have a nice view on the park surrounding Hagakyrkan (Haga Church).
