Bygningen blev opført i 1856-1861 med Johan Daniel Herholdt (1818-1902) som arkitekt. Den skulle rumme universitetets bibliotek, som blev grundlagt i 1482. Bygningen blev gennemgribende restaureret i 1996-97 ved kgl. byg-ningsinspektor David Bretton-Meyer (f. 1937).

Bygningens ydre er markant præget af den gennemførte brug af røde mursten og murstensornamentik. Det indre præges tilsvarende af gule mursten og murstensornamentik. Den offentligt tilgængelige bogsal er et af Danmarks mest særprægede rum med sin smukt dekorerede støbejernskonstruktion. Freskomalerierne i loftet er udført af Georg Hilker (1807-75).

Universitetsbiblioteket rummer i dag betjening af studerende og arbejdspladser for specialestuderende.

Built in 1856-61 by the architect Johan Daniel Herholdt (1818-1902). It was originally intended to house the University's library, which was founded in 1482. The building was thoroughly restored in 1996-97 by the Royal Inspector of Listed State Buildings, David Bretton-Meyer (b. 1937).

The exterior of the building is string with its consistent use of red brick and brick ornamentation.



The interior is characterised by the use of yellow brick and brick ornamentation. The book hall, which is open to the public, is one of Denmark's most distinctive rooms with its beautifully decorated cast-iron construction. The fresco paintings on the ceiling were made Georg Hilker (1807-75).

The University library is now home to student services and study places for thesis students.
