Opening hours

Dear students and lecturers,


from April 27th 2020 we will offer you the following library services until further notice:


Lending of books:

You can borrow our books, but you have to order them in advance via your library account (lecturers can send us an email to bibliothek(at) with their order requests). We will send you an email then, when you can pick up the books at our campus. Please note that access to the library rooms is still not possible. We will hand out your ordered books on the 2nd floor in front of the library.


Returning books:

You can return your books on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (starting from April 27, 2020). The place for the return is not in the CBS library, but in front of the Business Lounge (ground floor at Hardefuststr. 1).


We ask you to keep the prescribed distance!


The University Library of Cologne (USB) offers a lending and returning service from April 27th 2020, as well. The USB make this possible for all who have a USB library card. You will get more information here.


If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us: bibliothek(at)

Kind regards and stay healthy!

Your library team
