Changes in accessing the library premises from 9 March due to coronavirus situation

09.03.2021 15:25

Due to the coronavirus situation, some campuses have closed the campus outdoors. HAMK students and staff can enter the premises with HAMK key cards. For other customers, it is possible to return loans arranging a time with the library’s customer service.

Updated 4th of May regarding May opening hours.

Students and Staff

Accessing the Hämeenlinna University Centre library is possible only with the HAMK key card starting on Tue 9 March. If you don’t have the keycard, please contact the student services secretary or campus receptionist.

Please, avoid any unnecessary hanging out in the library premises. The library’s small group study rooms Ida, Theseus and Juuli and the library computers are out of use at the moment. Hämeenlinna University Centre has premises for working safely in B-, C-, D- and in S-buildings.

Follow the situation of your own campus actively. 

Notice the changes in opening hours during May, see the bulletin.

Other customers

It is possible to return earlier loans by contacting library’s customer service before arriving at the campus. Customer service is available via phone +358 3 646 4700 and email hamk.kirjasto@hamk.fi Mon-Thu at 9am – 3pm and on Fri 10am – 3 pm. 

It is not possible to get books on loan, order inter-library loans or get a library card due to the current situation – we will inform when that’s possible again.

The outdoor return box is located in Hämeenlinna (see more information below).

Outdoor return box

There is also a return box outside in Hämeenlinna university centre building D, in Visakaarre street, next to the main entrance where you can leave your loans when the building is closed.
