2. Library and Information Center
The library was founded and first operated in September 1988, which was the first academic year of the University of Thessaly. Since 1990, when the Kitsos Makris Folklore Centre was also donated to the Library, the Library has been increasing the number of its services and branches, an evolutionary process that follows proportionally the development of its parent institution. Thus, today it allocates 6 branches in cities of the Thessaly region (Volos, Larissa, Trikala, Lamia and Karditsa). In 2005 the Library moves in the New Central Library Building and changed its name to "Library & Information Centre" .
The library catalogue, the CD-ROM network and the digital library material can be accessed from:
All Erasmus students can be members of the University Library free of charge, depositing one photo, their identity card or passport and their UTH student card.

5. Erasmus Buddies
Erasmus experience proves to be a strong motivation for our students to help new incoming students in the University of Thessaly, especially for their first days in the country, having in mind also their need to adjust in a new educational system.
Like every year, also this academic year greek students from the University of Thessaly, who have already been Erasmus Students abroad, are willing to help! So they created an informal buddy system.
First of all, try to join the "ERASMUS UTH" (fb)! You will find it very useful from every point of view, also for accommodation before arrival and other renting needs (e.g. bicycles)
Besides the support they can get from the International Relations Office, the incoming students can contact even before their arrival their Greek erasmus+ buddies and ask them for anything it might trouble them.
The Erasmus buddies are of course different persons from year to year! You will find the contact details of the “fresh” ones in the “Announcements” on our website.
