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.

Login code

If you are in the library, you have acces to the search engines. First you need to apply for a login code / guest Solis ID at the service desk. Please bring a valid proof of identity. This login code gives you access to the online resources and search engines of the library and is valid for one year. Or apply for a login code from home by filling in this form.

 When you have a login code you can:

  • get access to the internet on your own laptop or tablet
  • consult online sources and search engines
  • 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).

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.


If the account of your own educational institution allows you access to the Eduroam Wi-Fi network, you can consult our online sources and search engines on your own laptop or tablet in the buildings of Utrecht University Library.
