Bring your own device

Visitors of Utrecht University Library increasingly make use of their own personal laptops and tablets. To be of better service to our visitors the library is improving the support for the use of own devices in the library buildings. As a result the number of desktop computers in the library will be reduced. Therefore we recommend visitors: bring your own device.

Adaptation of study spots

In developing new study spaces the ibrary has paid attention to the prerequisites for using personal devices for quite some time. A considerable number of existing study spaces however are equipped with desktop computers, and therefore do not meet these prerequisites. The most of these desktop computers have reached the end of their life-cycle and won’t be replaced. In the coming weeks these study spaces will be renewed so that users can more easily use their own devices. Desktop computers will be removed and, if necessary, extra power outlets will be added and/or WiFi-reception will be improved.

Laptops for loan for students, staff members and alumni UU
