Service temporarily affected by the Coronavirus/Covid 19

Due to the recommendations from the Swedish Government about distance learning for higher education, the library premises are currently closed for students and visitors. The library premises will remain closed during the summer. 

SSE students and staff can pick up books, but must make an appointment with the library staff in advance. Please contact us (preferably by email) in order to make an appointment.


All loans are extended until September 1. If you still want to return a book there is a book drop just inside Handelshögskolan’s visitors’ entrance on Bertil Ohlins Gata 4 (on the back of the main building).

Knock on the window and someone in the reception will let you in. Open between 8.00-11.30 and 13.00-16.00, closed for lunch 11.30-13.00. Remember that you don’t have to return your book, since the loans are automatically extended. It is prohibited to visit the SSE premises if you have any cold or flu symptoms at all.

If you have an urgent need for a book, please contact us by email and we will schedule an appointment when you can come to the library to pick it up. This service is only avaliable for SSE students and staff.
