Started in 2020, the extension of the Unithèque continues and, like any construction site, causes noise. The intensity of these inconveniences varies according to the nature of the work in progress. The BCUL thanks the users for their understanding.  

This page will indicate any change of schedules or services related to the works. The changes are also indicated by posters in the Unithèque.  

Please note that on certain dates, the noise pollution might be significant! 

The extension of the Unithèque is a major project that will take place until 2025. The new building will offer many advantages:  

  • more documents in open access 
  • more work places 
  • rooms adapted to groups 
  • renewed services  

Designed by the architectural firm Fruehauf Henry & Viladoms, the new building will integrate naturally into its environment while respecting the original building.
