What is happening with the plans for the new UvA-wide University Library? Will it be leaving the Singel, and if so, where will it be moving? One thing is certain: a new UvA-wide University Library is going to be built. It's also certain that the new library will be built on the City Centre Campus, forming the heart of that campus. There are two locations the Executive Board intends to decide between in the short term: the Oudemanhuispoort or the Binnengasthuis area.

What do you consider important for a new University Library?

Draft designs have been created for both locations based on the needs and wishes of the library’s users. To make the right decision on the location, the Executive Board wishes to consult all UvA staff and students. So what aspects do you consider important for the new University Library on the City Centre Campus? Criteria to consider include the location of meeting places and study areas and planning. Your input will be used to assess the two draft designs.


During the meeting, Geert ten Dam and Kees van Ast (Executive Board), Maria Heijne (University Library), Gerard Nijsten (Faculty of Humanities) and  Cees van der Wolf (Campus and Real Estate Development) will answer all your questions about the University Library on the City Centre Campus and the consultation process.
