Both library locations get a rush of students in the pre-exam period: everybody is looking for a study place these days. Library staff at the information desks and library students in their red shirts in the front offices are happy to help you find a free space. Don’t hesitate to ask their assistance. They can also give you a street-map to trace all 4 library locations. And in this post we offer some alternatives.
Change your routine
Both the Randwyck and Inner City Library show a daily drop in visitor numbers from 19.00 onward. In Randwyck the chances of finding free study places even increase from 16.00. Our advice: avoid rush hours and choose a smart moment to start studying. Until Wednesday 21 October, the Inner City Library is open until 24.00 every day. The Randwyck Library is 4 of 5 weekdays (Mon-Thu) open as usual, until 22.00.
