Lernräume - Study Spaces

What is a study space? A study space is just that: An space for studying. Such areas are designed to fit the desired learning arrangements and students’ requirements. Accordingly, the University provides different study-space scenarios. For the campus of the University of Bremen is both a place of teaching and research, as well as a place of community learning and social interaction. You can find more information on the study spaces at the University of Bremen on the web pages of the Zentrums für Multimedia in der Lehre .

 

Multimedia learning rooms

The multimedia learning rooms specifically support independent student learning activities in groups and project work. Learning islands are installed in each of these rooms, equipped with a conferencing table, a large flat screen, often with a computer and a whiteboard as well as various connection leads for laptops and other mobile devices.
Students can reserve a learning island on weekdays (Mon to Fri) via the Stud.IP learning platform and the menu item “Study Space” in the toolbar. It may also be possible to book outside these times.
 

Open study spaces

For spontaneous learning: In many buildings of the University of Bremen are free, designated areas that are intended as study and work areas for students. They are usually equipped with high-quality furniture and suitable for both individual and group work.
These areas can be used without having to reserve. If you see a vacant study space, you can simply sit down and use it. Just be sure to find out when the building closes at the end of the day. For example, you can find such open study spaces in GW 2 under the stairway; on level 1 in MZH, and 0 in NW 1.

Study spaces in vacant seminar rooms

Students can use Stud.IP to inquire which centrally administered rooms of any building are not occupied in a certain period of time and then use these as study and work areas. Search for free rooms on the learning platform Stud.IP by clicking on “search for vacant” rooms below the menu item.

Of course, a seminar room can only be used as a study space for as long as no seminars are being held in it. Once the course schedule indicates a seminar, the room must be released for this purpose. Attention should also be paid to the occupancy plans posted outside the rooms and that some rooms are only sometimes open.

How do I reserve a study space?

Every student can independently book a learning island in a study space up to two weeks in advance. It is not possible to reserve whole rooms. Simply go to the booking platform Stud.IP and the menu item “Study Space”, and then click on Reservations Page.

How often can I book?

Since there are only a limited number of study islands for all students, there is a limit of two reservations per day, each lasting a maximum of two hours.

When are the study space open?

The study spaces are accessible on normal working days (Monday to Friday). Depending on the location, the times that rooms are open vary; exact times can be found in the description of the individual learning islands on the Stud.IP reservations page. In the library and in the MZH, the study spaces are also accessible beyond the normal times (depending on when the buildin is open), but cannot be booked.

Does my reservation have priority?

If you arrive on time at your booked learning island, the learning island should be cleared for you. If you arrive “too late” (more than 15-20 minutes) and the island is occupied, you have to find a solution on your own.
