It is the biggest library of the Semmelweis University, everybody just calls it “Mikszi”, which is only a couple minutes of walk away from the Inner Clinical Block. Thanks to its location, there are a lot of cafes and restaurants in the neighbourhood, it is easily accessible by public transport. It is optimal for night owls and early birds as well, with it being open 24-7.

It has the most seating, with several quiet and loud reading rooms and several computer seats on 3 floors, at almost 1300 m2, so that everyone can find the study spot for themselves. The Students Union organized a coffee machine with capsules, a water heater and a microwave oven for the library. There is a lamp and a power source at almost every seat.
The library can be visited by anybody during the day. After 20 o’clock and on the weekends only students and workers of the University are eligible to enter, make sure to have your valid student ID with you (or a university entrance card.) Renting needs a registration, but its free for students of the University. The wide range of available books makes learning easier, because one does not need to carry the heavy books, you can read them in the library and there are usually multiple copies ready for rent. It is advised to wake up early and hunt for places in the exam period, the library is usually full around 9-10 oclock, and it stays like that until the evening.

The reading room is on 2 levels. The stairs are somewhat disturbingly in the middle of the hall, so the walking on the stairs can get annoying. There is light and electricity at every table. There are some computer seats available.
The closet with the anatomical models is a somewhat new approach, it is great help for first- and second-year med students who cannot go to the Anatomy Museum or to consultation, because they can see the structures as they learn.
