Construction works University Library area

21 February 2022

Several construction and installation activities will be taking place around the University Library (UB) area, in favour of thermal energy storage as a sustainable energy supply for both the Humanities Campus and the UB.

  • Starting 21 February, the trees in front of the UB will be temporarily removed to make room for construction site supplies and sheds. All trees will be moved back to their regular home after the construction works will have ended
  • During the month of March, there will be construction works around the Van Eyckhof / Van Wijkplaats area
  • From March 14 through June, works will be conducted around the Matthias de Vrieshof area

These activities may cause some inconveniences to UB visitors.

Bicycle parking

Bicycles can be parked at the temporary bicycle racks placed between the University Library and the Matthias de Vrieshof, and at the indoor bicycle parking facilities in Lipsius and Reuvens. These locations will be signposted.

The bicycle racks in front of the University Library will be restored in May. The ones near Van Eyckhof will remain unavailable for a longer period of time due to the construction activities.
