FAQ Corona virus - Students

Update 29 May 2020.


When can I study in the library again?

We understand that many students miss the library as a place to meet and study together.

Unfortunately the library can’t provide safe places to study this exam period (1st and 2nd period), nor for the entire duration of the 1.5m social distance rule.

Students who need assistance, or who are experiencing difficulties studying can contact STIP.

Scan, print, copy

How can I ask for a scan from the library collection?

Students who are finishing their bachelor or master thesis can request a scan of a journal article or a chapter from a book free of charge.
