Library basics for new students
We're in the city centre, Broerplein, across the Academy Building. We have a library at the Zernike Campus as well.
The library is also called "The UB".
You need your student card to enter the library, for borrowing books and for entering a pre-booked studio.
There are 2200 study places available, with and without a pc. You only need to make a reservation during exam periods (UG-only). You can also book a studio.
We have an online catalogue which shows you our collection (printed and online), and tells you how to access or borrow publications.
Watch the videos below.
We have millions of online books, articles and other publications. You can access these from anywhere, simply by logging in with your UG-account.
There are coffee corners on each floor. You can top up credits on your student card to buy coffee, or use your debit card.
