Book a group study room
The libraries offer several group study rooms, for use by Leiden University students and researchers.
Due to the international coronavirus situation, Leiden University Libraries has had to adjust its services.
Please find an up-to-date overview of our current range of services on our webpage on library services during the coronavirus situation.

To book a group room please contact the UB reception desk.
On the ground floor, the UB offers a media room equipped with computers with Blu-rayplayer. The 4 individual seats are available on a first come, first served basis. Leiden University students and staff may book a group unit for 2-4 people at the UB information desk.
