On 9 January 2023, the UG-only period will start again in the UB. This period is planned around the exam periods at UG faculties and begins some time before the start of the exam periods. In this period, the UB City Centre is only accessible to students and employees of the University of Groningen (and other UB pass holders). Hanze students do not have access to the UB during these periods. Alternative study places can be found in e.g. the Forum or at Hanzehogeschool.

The UG-only period runs from 9 through 27 January. Opening hours are: 8.30-00.00.
