The University of Konstanz is located on the Gießberg hill, a place where others go on holiday, coming with its own beach facing the Lake Constance. The campus is well connected and stands out with its short distances. That means that all lectures, library, laboratories and café are at one location.
The Library is the central institution for documentary research at the University of Konstanz. The entire collection, a mixture of lending and non-circulating material (consisting of more than two million volumes), is systematically arranged and accessible to the public in open-stacks. The Library can be used by everyone, even people from outside of the university.
