  • Then walk the indicated route to your floor; present your student card at the access gates.
    Remember to keep 1,5 m distance at all times. Sticking to the rules set by the RIVM, GGD and local government means we can keep the library open.

  • Please note that seating in the coffee corners and on the roof terraces remains unavailable/inaccessible.
  • For the time being, you may bring water/tea/coffee to the reading rooms. Please dispose of your trash properly.
