Workspaces at the Uni/PH Building

There are 670 workspaces at the ZHB library in the Uni/PH Building. These cannot be booked in advance. However, you can check via Seat Navigator for free spaces in the library.

You can see how occupied the library currently is and display exactly which spaces are vacant (green), occupied (red) and vacated for a break (yellow) on our campus map. The motion sensors used do not collect or store personal data. The sensors transmit data wirelessly. They also give off far less radiation and are much more energy-efficient than WiFi or cellular communications.

If you leave your workspace for a short break, there's no need to worry – it won't be shown as vacant again straightaway. The Seat Navigator follows these rules as concerning to breaks:

  • If a space is occupied for at least 20 minutes and then vacated, the display switches it to break mode (yellow) for 60 minutes.
  • If a space is occupied for less than 20 minutes and then vacated, the display switches it straight back to vacant (green).

If you have questions or suggestions about Seat Navigator, we'd love to hear from you at informatik @ zhbluzern.ch.
