During the past years, Leiden University Libraries (UBL) saw an increase in the number of visitors seeking a place to study. In order to meet Leiden University students' concerns, UBL has chosen to regulate library and study place access.
Outside of exam periods, library study places without a computer can be used freely by library account and LU-Cardholders.
The Law Library is closed year-round to students registered at educational institutions other than Leiden University, and fee card holders who do not verifiably depend on the library collections for their research.
During examination periods, students registered at educational institutions other than Leiden University, and fee card holders who do not verifiably depend on the library collections for their research, have no access to the libraries.

Study places in exam periods
Only Leiden University students have access to library study places in exam periods, after online reservation.
All library locations will have some study places freely available for those visitors to whom the access restrictions do not apply. These study places are marked with a white sticker.
