Only the person who reserved the material will be able to retrieve the material at Campus arena. Groups of people are not allowed in the lobby!

  • Waiting for access to the short loan room be sure to remember to have enough distance to your fellow students.
  • In the short loan room, you have antiseptic hand rub - use it.
