Open study spaces

Whether you want to collaborate with your fellow students, have a quiet discussion with a teacher or just catch up with a classmate.. You're always welcome in the Library. Join us, we have great coffee!

Quiet room

Do you need a place where you can concentrate and work in silence? All AUAS library locations have a quiet room. Here you can really study undisturbed.

Meeting rooms

Are you looking for a place where you can work together with your project group in peace? Then book a meeting room in the Wibauthuis.

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.
