Book a study place

Reopening of the Library

UvA students and staff are welcome to study at some of our library locations again. Note: You have to book your study space in advance.

Reopened library locations

  • University Library Singel (UB Singel)
  • Science Park
  • Roeterseiland Campus (Library Learning Centre, REC H)
  • P.C. Hoofthuis

Practical information

To make studying in the Library as safe as possible for all of us, we have laid out a number of rules. Please do keep in mind:

  • Studying from home remains the norm, so only book a study place if it is really necessary.
  • Come alone.
  • Keep your distance at least 1.5 meters, also at the entrance.
  • Stay home if you have symptoms of a cold or the flu.
  • Follow the instructions of the Library staff.
  • When you enter the building, we will ask you about your health situation, your study place reservation and your student / employee card.

Please note: no reservation = no admission to the Library

Booking a study place

  • In the reservation system you will be asked to choose between a timeslot in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening or for a whole day.
  • You can book a maximum of five timeslots.
  • You can book a study place three days in advance to 23.59hrs (11.59pm) the day before.
  • Please bring your student / employee card with you, and show us your reservation upon entering the Library.
  • If you don’t have a reservation, you cannot make use of the study places.
  • Reservations can be canceled until 23:59hrs the day before your reservation.
  • Reservations are personal, and therefore reservations are not transferable.

Note: The login method to reserve a study place has been renewed. You can now log in to Mapiq with your UvAnetID. Reservations made with your old Mapiq account remain valid.
