UB History: Restricted Access with UZH Card at Weekends

Due to renovations, the Zoological Museum is closed until and including 18 March 2024. Therefore access with UZH Card to the UB History is at weekends only possible on Saturday from 7:00am - 1:30pm.

Regular Opening Hours

Our libraries are usually open to the public from Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm.
Individual opening hours can be found at Locations.

Access for UZH members

UB Zurich is on its way to becoming an "Open Library": This means that more and more locations are accessible to UZH members outside of regular opening hours.
