Please keep the Library clean

08 October 2015

In the University Library, these house rules apply:

  • food and drinks only in the coffee corners
  • water bottles allowed in the entire building

There are different areas for working in the library building: study areas and silent areas. Different regulations apply to these different areas (see illustration). Please bear them in mind.

Clean and pleasant

In the fall of 2014, the University Library City Centre started a major renovation. The library building, dating from 1986, is being customized to meet the demands of students and staff.

For a clean and pleasant study environment, we ask you to only use capped water bottles in the study and silent areas. Food may only be consumed in the coffee corners.

  • Please report inconveniences, rubbish etc. at the reception or service desk;
