The good news is that CBS has a handful of them with different features that will all make it easier to concentrate and find the motivation to get some studying done.

Some of them are walk-in, while others allow you to book a spot. All of them offer four-week access to a locker where you can store your heavy books, and of course, coffee is available at a student-friendly price.

Here is the ultimate guide with everything you need to know about the reading rooms at CBS.

CBS Library

At CBS’ main campus at Solbjerg Plads, CBS Library, with its four floors, is the place to be for inspiration and motivation to get work done. There is no way to not feel the academic inspiration when stepping into this book and study heaven.

At the library, you can save yourself a seat on one of the two top floors by booking it ahead on student cbs. The ground floor is free for anyone without a booking, on a first-come-first-served basis. All four floors offer lounge furniture in case your body needs a rest or you simply prefer to study in a more chilled setting.

Number of chairs: 300 + lounge furniture

Facilities: Librarians are here ready to help you search for literature and sources. Tons of books, daily newspapers and magazines are available 24/7.

Nearest printer: The IT room on the first floor.

Nearest coffee: Self-service at the CBS Library Kiosk, which is open 24/7 with the access card (you can turn your student card into one at Campus Desk in front of the library).

Opening hours: 24/7.

The reading room at Dalgas Have

What used to be the language library at Dalgas Have campus has been turned into a reading room for students who prefer this slightly less crowded campus to Solbjerg Plads. The reading room is located on the second floor in the middle of the gorgeous building from 1988 by architect Henning Larsen. A third of the available seats are up for first-come-first-served grabs and the rest must be booked through mycbs. As this campus is less overrun than Solbjerg Plads, it’s easier to find an available spot here.
