The Maastricht University Library offers you more than just a collection of books: aside from its outstanding collection, it is also a place for students to come together and make use of all our state-of-the-art facilities, either individually or in groups.

Because the university campuses are located in two parts of the city, there are two libraries: one in the inner city and one in Randwyck. These are open every day, including weekends. Students also can make use of learning spaces. In three locations the library provides rooms where you can study with your own devide: the Bonnefanten, Tapijn and Univesity Sports Centre Learning Spaces. Whether you’re at one of the campuses, at home or doing an internship abroad: the Online Library is available 24/7. Besides basic information, to be found on our webpages for new students, the next services may be of interest to you:
