University Library City Centre: access gates
All visitors (UG internal and external) need to present their access cards at the access gates at all times when entering and exiting the building. Please note this may cause some inconvenience.
Passing the access gates: step by step.
DO NOT share your access card with someone else! If your card is checked-in twice, it will be blocked when exiting the building.
Access to the UL City Centre per target group
The University Library City Centre is a public building. Everyone who currently has access to the building, can still enter through the gates. Exceptions are the so-called UG only-weeks in exam periods, in which only University of Groningen students and staff and other library user with an access card may enter the building (see below).
The permanent activation of the access gates will allow us to monitor the amount of visitors present in the building. This is important in emergency situations.
