University of Groningen Library

Studying and working in the University Library



Study places

All study places in the UB City Centre must be reserved upfront (you need your UG or Hanze student number for this). If you would like to come to our Special Collections research room, you will have to make an appointment as well.

Please note: in exam periods the UB City Centre is accessible for students and staff of the University of Groningen only, see: Exam periods: UG only weeks.

The reception desk (e.g. for questions on study places) is available from 8.30 am until 10 pm (tel. 050-3635000). You may contact the Servicedesk Monday through Friday, from 8.30 am until 5 pm (050 36 35020), or e-mail us at servicedesk-bibliotheek

The University Library City Centre offers UG researchers a quiet work environment, consisting of workspaces in the Special Collections reading room on the 3rd floor.


Study spaces are available at all of the University Library locations. They are subdivided into computer workspaces and workspaces without a desktop computer. The widget below shows the availability of computer workspaces at the different locations.
