At the moment, study places can be used by Leiden University students, and some of the study places by Leiden University PhD's. Study places need to be booked in advance.
During the December/January lockdown, the use of study places is exclusively reserved for students who do not have anywhere else to study.
- International students
- Students with a disability
- Students who are carers
- Students who do not have the option to study at home or who prefer to study on campus for other (mental health) reasons
Please show responsibility and solidarity. Do not unnecessarily occupy a place. Check the Leiden University webpage on study places for more information.
Studying and conversation
Several areas within the libraries, specifically the reading rooms, are marked as quiet zones. Outside of these zones you may confer in a subdued voice, as long as you make sure to respect current social distancing rules.
Leiden University offers two wireless networks: Eduroam and Leiden University Wireless Access. Information regarding these networks can be found on the the university’s ICT Shared Service Centre website.
Single occupancy study rooms in the UB
The University Library on Witte Singel offers sixteen individual study rooms for reservation by Leiden University students.
