University Library

Update 4 November: Library remains open
The University Library of Amsterdam is exempt from the national measure stipulating that all libraries have to be closed. This is because the Library of the UvA falls within the scope of education. The study spaces and facilities at the libraries, and the Research Room Allard Pierson will therefore remain available. Book a study place in advance and wear a face mask when you are inside.
Book your study place in advance
UvA students and staff are welcome again to study at the University Library Singel, Science Park and Roeterseiland Campus. We will start with a limited amount of study places.
Direct search for books, e-books, magazines, e-journals, databases etc.? It is possible in our online catalogue.
