Opening hours and available computers

15-minute computers

Most of the study centres have a small number of computers referred to as ‘15-minute PCs’. These workstations are designed for people who only need a computer for a short period. After 15 minutes, the user is automatically logged out. You cannot immediately login again to a 15-minute computer. If you want to continue working after 15 minutes, you will have to login at a normal workstation.


You can bring your own laptop to work on in the study centres. You can also borrow a laptop from the information desks of UB Singel, the Science Park Library, the Library Learning Centre at Roeterseiland and the P.C. Hoofthuis Library.
