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.

It is time for your annual password change @UM

Around this time last year, many of you have changed their password. The UM passwords need to be changed once a year, so in the upcoming weeks you will be reminded to change the password again.

Note: Your password is and always will be strictly yours and cannot be shared with anybody. UM will therefore never ask you for your password by e-mail, phone or other media.
