Study areas

Different types of study areas are available throughout the VU campus.

Spread over the buildings, the VU campus offers different types of study places, where you can study independently or together with other students. You can use silent study rooms, project group rooms and places in the public space. There are also computer places on campus. You can also study in classrooms when there are no lectures or other (educational) activities. You can find out whether education is planned via the timetable website.

Study areas for online lectures

In case you have an online lecture before or after a physical lecture on campus there are additional study areas to join the online lecture. Extra study facilities are available for this purpose in the W&N building, both silent and interactive areas. These places are not intended for regular study activities. Check the locations below.

Looking for an available room? Use StudySpot!

StudySpot is a tool service on VU.nl that allows you to find available spaces on the VU campus. Are you looking for a place to study in peace or to discuss with a (work)group? StudySpot helps you find it. You find StudySpot under the Apps on your dashboard.

You can indicate the location where you are looking for a room, what facilities you will need there and you can also see how many people will fit in each room. StudySpot then gives you an overview of the available rooms, distinguishing between meeting rooms, quiet rooms and computer rooms.

Have you found a room? Then you can also check in via StudySpot. When you do so, please state how many people want to use the room and for how long you will need it. Bear in mind that teaching always has priority!. Is the room reserved for teaching activities? Then you will have to leave it and you can use StudySpot to find another available space.

To avoid any misunderstandings: students cannot reserve rooms. So a check-in is not the same as a reservation!

Please note: Reservations are updated every night and reservations made on the day itself are not visible. Check-ins are visible immediately.
