Maintenance to library buildings

University Library USP closed for six weeks

From the 12th of July to the 26th of August large-scale maintenance will take place on the buildings of the University Library. The University Library Utrecht Science Park will be closed during this period. The University Library City Centre stays open on weekdays, but (noise) nuisance is to be expected.

The buildings of the University Library need maintenance. To keep the inconvenience down to a minimum, the maintenance is planned for the summer weeks, when visitor numbers are lowest: from Friday the 12th of July 6 p.m. to Monday the 26th of August 8 a.m.

University Library Utrecht Science Park closed for six weeks

The maintenance work on the Utrecht University Library Utrecht Science Park is so extensive that this location will be closed for the whole period.
The collections from the University Library Utrecht Science Park will remain available. You can request books and other materials (24 hours in advance) after which they will be ready for pick-up at the University Library City Centre.

Special Collections

Physical items from the special collections cannot be consulted during this time because the Reading Room and Map Room are closed. However, an increasing part of the Special Collections is being digitised and can be consulted online. The Libguide special material explains how to find this digitised material.

Noise nuisance at the University Library City Centre

Large-scale maintenance is also planned on the University Library City Centre. The library will be open during this period, but please be aware that the work will lead to (noise) nuisance and that parts of the building may be closed off.
Opening hours University Library City Centre at this time:

  • Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
