Reading rooms for GEO-students

Students in geosciences can use the Episenter, which is a relatively new learning environment centre right opposite the Geology Building (map). The centre is in the first floor of the ZEB-building (map). The facilities are shared with music- and pharmacy students, and is a relatively modern and new learning environment.

The Episenter have 49 study desks, book cabinets with lockers, many meeting rooms, and several seating areas. It is close to the Geology Building where the most of the teaching and lectures are held. The learning environment center is nicely located with a green grove just outside where you can have a break outdoors if the weather allows it.

Many GEO-students chose to use the facilities in the Science Library in Vilhelm Bjerknes hus (map). There are many reading- and meeting rooms, and all is close to the library services. You can also use the reading room facilities at the huge University Libray (Georg Sverdrups hus; map). Here is also an cafe. 

In the Physics building (map), there is a large reading room for all science students on the 4th floor.

Computer rooms: In Niels Henrik Abel's house there is a large terminal room, "Abel", downstairs. This can be used by all students at the MN faculty.

An overview of computer rooms can be found here (in Norwegian).
