    Frequently asked questions

    about returning and extending books when the library's closed
    • Returning your books when we're closed is usually not possible (because the faculty buildings are also closed). However vacations and holidays don't count for your loan period, so your late fees will not increase because you couldn't return your books.
    • In case faculty building Academieplein or Museumpark are open, you can return your books via the book drop off. Also when the library is closed.
    • You can check your loan period and extend it yourself by going to your personal page in START
