There are 620 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.

There are four group study rooms at the ZHB Uni/PH Building library. Students can reserve these rooms by themselves. There is a white folder at the information desk that holds a reservation list for the current, and also for the following week. Groups can reserve a room for up to two hours a day. If the room is not reserved when your session ends, you can extend your booking. Reservations are canceled after 15 minutes if the group is not in the room.
