Different types of study places

Study in silence, collaborate with your project group or consult with your teacher? The Library has different types of study places. Ask the library desk about the possibilities.

N.B. due to the corona measures, the project spaces in the Wibauthuis are temporarily unavailable.

Reserve your study spot

It is necessary that you reserve a study place in advance. Due to the corona measures, the Library only has a limited number of study places available. In some cases, students with special circumstances have priority on a study place. Check the link below if you want to know what the conditions are for reserving a study spot.

Bring the library into your home

Students can make use of a binaural soundscape (3D) for studying at home. Does music distract you too much while studying? Or does your study place at home not even remotely resemble that of the library? Put on your headphone or earbuds, switch on the soundscape and in no time you will imagine yourself in the study space of the Library (location: University Library of Amsterdam, UB Singel).


In this sound recording: the familiar chatter of the air conditioning in study room A1.01, the echo in the stairwell, the cleaner and the traffic on the Singel. The porter will let you know when it is time for a break.

In this sound recording: a computer session near the desk, the chatter of the coffee machine, someone who comes to get a book, tap and click. The porter will let you know when it is time for a break.
