Since Monday the Inner City University Library has been open until midnight, seven days a week. In the Coffee Corner you can buy refreshments until 20.30.
Previously, the UL’s doors were only open till late in the evening during exam periods. “You see this a lot in foreign countries. Some libraries are even open 24/7”, says UL director Ingrid Wijk. “We want to be an international university and so have to go along with the international developments. We asked several students what they need – a library that opens at seven in the morning was also an option – and they preferred longer opening hours in the evening. They want a place to study and to socialise.”
Since last year the rules in the Inner City and Randwyck libraries have also been changed. Coats and bags can be taken into the library, and water, soft drinks, coffee, sandwiches and hot food are also allowed.
