The essentials about booking a place

Making a reservation ensures you a well-equipped seat when and where you need it. Conversely, seats freely accessible allow you to come at the last minute!


For seating: classic seats, seats with computer, etc.

  • At the BU Beaulieu, all seats are free, without reservation.
  • At BU Centre and BU Villejean Santé, it is possible to come and work with a reservation so that you can have your favourite seat at the library when you need it. You can also find places freely accessible, without reservation, in these 2 libraries..
  • From Friday 1st October: in the 3 libraries, a reservation is compulsory to work at the library during the extended hours: after 7pm (Monday to Friday), after 5.30pm (Saturday), Sunday (for the libraries concerned).
