Online access for guests

As a guest you have access to online library resources in the University Library. From other locations you have no access.

The guest Solis ID

To get a guest Solis ID, please fill in this form. You can do this in advance, but also in the library. At the service desk you can have your guest Solis ID activated by showing a valid identity card. After activation, you will receive an email with the request to create a password. This login code gives you access to the online resources and search engines of the library and is valid for one year.

When you have a guest Solis ID, using your own computer, laptop or smartphone you can:

  • consult online sources and search engines when you are within the library
  • use all print facilities of Utrecht University
  • use the Eduroam Wi-Fi network (if you do not already have access to Eduroam via your own educational institution).

Please bring your own device.

Open access resources

When you are not in the library, you have access to open access databases and journals. In the list they are indicated by a green arrow. No green arrow? You only have access to these databases and journals when you are in the library.


You can apply for a login code ('Solis-id') to get access to online resources and search engines via Eduroam.
