Bandito closed between 13 December and 3 January

Bandito will close its doors for the Christmas holidays as of Monday 13 December.

The Bandito staff is looking forward to welcoming you again on Monday 3 January 2022!

Closing most library locations as of Monday 20 December

As we know from experience, our library locations are virtually without visitors in the week leading up to Christmas. Exams are over and most students are on their way home.

It has therefore been decided to prolong the Christmas closure period with one week. The Inner City Library, Randwyck Library (including LINK and the Computer Facilities), the USC Learning Spaces and Tapijn Loods V will close from Monday 20 December until Sunday 2 January.
