In our more relaxing furniture around the library, you can take a break with a cup of coffee. In the basement, we offer an area with board games, video games, and TV screens. Video games and controllers can be borrowed for use in the library at Library Service.

If you do not have a DTU login, you can use the walk-in PCs on the ground floor, which allows you to search and use DTU Library's databases - to some extent.


DTU students and staff can print B/W for free in the databar on the 1st floor. Just present your activated student card/DTU card to the printer. In the Print Shop on the ground floor, DTU students and staff can scan to e-mail and print in colour.

In the library basement, DTU students and staff can print posters up to size A0. Colour prints and posters are paid for via your student card/DTU card.

Users not affiliated with DTU can print for free in black and white from the walk-in PCs and contact the Library Service for colour printing for 0.50 DKK per A4 page.
