Designed by architect Fernand Pouillon, the library opened its doors in 1956. It was completely renovated in 2016-2017 as part of the Campus Plan.

The library has a variety of work spaces to suit the needs of its users. Its 750 seats are spread over three levels: garden level, first floor and mezzanine, reserved for M2 students and above.

The library also offers nine group study rooms, one study room for teachers and another for lecturers, two computer rooms, three printing/photocopying rooms, a consultation area for precious collections and an adapted study room (with remote enlarger and text-to-speech software).

  • Collections of the former Faculty of Applied Economics (FEA)
  • Albert de La Pradelle Library
