Booking a seat

Booking your seat is now mandatory in order to access the study rooms of the Vauban University Library’s main branch (60 Rue du Port in Lille).

Here’s how the process works:

1) Go on

2) Select the room you wish to work in (mezzanine, A room – on the right as you arrive from the staircase - or B room – on the left)

3) Select a seat, a starting time and a duration (30 mn / 1h / 1h30 / 2h / 2h30 or 3h max per reservation) then follow the instructions (you will receive the reservation confirmation by email). Reservations are open 7 days in advance.

4) Repeat the process if you wish to make more reservations.

5) Upon arriving at the library, scan the QR code at the entrance to indicate your arrival. Be on time! If you are more than 15 minutes late, your reservation will be cancelled. We strongly invite you to respect the sanitary regulations which are on display and which will be orally reiterated if needed, especially wearing a mask, which is mandatory during your entire stay, including while you are sitting down.

Tip: use your institutional email address (,, etc.), you may not make a reservation using your personal email address
