WUR has expanded the number of study places in Forum, Orion and the Leeuwenborch. But, the number of study spots on campus is still limited because of the current social distancing requirements. If you want a study space, you need to reserve it, including those in the Forum Library. This ensures you'll have a working spot before coming to campus.

Do you want to study in the Library? From Monday, 12 October, onwards, you need to book your spot in advance. Only WUR students can book a study place.
