The BUM collects, organizes and preserves the documentary material supporting the teaching and research activities of the Department of Civil Environmental and Mechanical Engineering. The library is located in a functional building with a modern architectural design. The two floors have bright and harmonious interiors, open to the surrounding environment and equipped with advanced technologies.
Located along the tree-lined avenue near the main entrance of the Engineering Campus and half-hidden in the woods that cover the hill, it boasts a wonderful view of the city.
Access to libraries is allowed to all citizens, but in the first two hours of opening access to the rooms is reserved for UniTrento students and internal users of the university. It is necessary to book through UniTrentoApp (version 1.2.6 or higher) for entry in the first two opening hours or to check the availability of seats for entry at other times; Reservation can start from 8 pm of the previous day.
Use of mask is not required, but recommended in areas where social distancing is not possible.
