There are six PCs with internet access in the user area. Four research computers are set up in room 1 opposite the information desk. Two more PCs are located at workplaces in room 4.

Internet access

All our users have access to the University of Vienna’s WLAN in the library rooms. This makes it possible to use the Internet with mobile devices without a great deal of configuration work.
Access to licensed electronic resources is possible for students and employees of the University of Vienna using their u:account via u:access.
Users without a u:account can only use these resources on the freely accessible research computers or with their own mobile devices with a connection to the University of Vienna’s WLAN.


A Facultas copier is available in the user area. Copy cards are available at the information desk. These can be purchased for cash (40 copies cost €3, 70 copies €5, 145 copies €10). Please note: the copier is not a u:print device, so no u:print credit can be used to pay.
