Construction works near the University Library

13 May 2022

From 16 May until the beginning of June, construction works at the Van Wijkplaats building next to the University Library (UB) may cause some noise inconvenience in the library. The building activities are part of the development of Leiden University's Humanities Campus.

Studying at the library

The study areas at the middle and north facing sides of the UB, such as the reading room entrances 4 - 8 and ground floor areas, will likely be less affected by noise.

Feel free to collect a free set of ear plugs at the UB reception desk. For any complaints regarding more serious noise disturbances, please contact us using 'Ask a librarian'.

Bicycle parking

To facilitate the Humanities Campus construction works, many of the bicycle racks at the UB have had to be removed. Bicycles can be parked between the University Library and the Matthias de Vrieshof, and at the indoor bicycle parking facilities in Lipsius and Reuvens.

The bicycle racks in front of the University Library will be restored as soon as possible. The ones near Van Eyckhof will remain unavailable for a longer period.
