Book a seat or room

With the reservation tool you can reserve a study place or a group room at these locations:

  • CMB Library - seats with/without computer &  group rooms

  • CMB Silent Study Areas - only seats without computer

Seats without reservation

These are the places where you can go without making a reservation first:

  1. CMB Library:
    • front row PCs (PC 1-5)
    • front row seats (seat 46-57)
    • workshop room (only if there is no workshop).
      We always indicate next to the door of the CMB workshop room whether and when there is a workshop. Or you can check the workshop calendar. The workshop room can be found at the back of the CMB Library.
  2. CMB Zorg (Central Medical Complex): only accessible to UMCG employees with a UMCG card!
    Note: Students with a UMCG card don't have access, but PhD students do.

In short:

  • If you have opened the reservation tool, choose a location by clicking a map
