Beeghly Library, the intellectual heart of Heidelberg University, is housed in an unusual round three-story building. The library provides an inviting spot for students to gather, do research and work on individual and group projects. Wireless throughout, the library includes a computer lab, classrooms, a lounge and study rooms.
