Anyone that needs a place outside of their home to study can ask via their Study Adviser
The University of Groningen (RUG) has significantly expanded the number of study places for students from today. The extra study places are mainly intended for vulnerable students, at least students “who need an external study place due to special circumstances”, reports the UKrant.
According to the University newspaper, there were seventy study places available per day for vulnerable students. The RUG is scaling this up to 140 study places, allowing 280 students a day to go to the University Library.
Examples of special circumstances can be strong concentration or structure problems or sensitivity to stimuli. Disabilities, psychological and medical problems or a difficult home situation can also be reasons for using the UB. Students that wish to reserve a space must first talk to their study adviser.
