Printing at Randwyck Library and Paul Henri Spaak learning spaces

Since FASoS has closed its doors due to the coronavirus, many students are unable to print documents and readings.

In case you need to print and are unable to make a reservation to do this in the inner city library, the Randwyck Library and the Paul Henri Spaak learning spaces are freely accessible. This means that you do not need to reserve a spot to enter these buildings or study there and are thus able to print things without needing to make a reservation.

More study spaces available in UM libraries

The UM library is cautiously opening up more study places as an answer to the increasing demand from students who have problems with studying from home.

Of course, they are taking all COVID-19 guidelines into account.
