Online reservation of study rooms

You can book rooms only through the Portaro catalogue. Times are set to an hour, but if you need to be in the room longer, book multiple times in a row. From now on, we leave everything up to you. You just pick up the room key at the loan desk.

Now you can also book individual rooms with a PC. Therefore, even from individuals, you will go to the loan desk to get the keys.

If you have any questions about reservations or anything else, write to knihovna@vfu.cz
