Campus library Diepenbeek

You are here


You can study quietly

Many students use the library as a place to study. We expect everyone to respect the library's peace and quiet.
Because demand often exceeds supply, work and study areas in the library are reserved for Hasselt University students (and members of the association).

Due to the corona measures, the number of seats in the library is still limited. However, wearing a face mask is only mandatory when walking around in the library. Once you sit down and study, you don't have to wear your face mask.

You can do group work

UHasselt students have the possibility to use 10 rooms for group work: 6 open group work rooms (that are freely accessible) and 4 closed group work rooms (that need to be booked). Quiet conversation is allowed in these areas.

The open group work rooms normally have 6 seats, but due to the corona situation they have been temporarily converted into individual study rooms, each with 2 separate workplaces.
The closed group work rooms have 8 chairs as well as a TV screen and a flipchart. Here, students are still obliged to wear a face mask permanently, even when sitting down and even if the 1.5 m distance can be maintained. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!

You can print, copy and scan

Students, members of staff and emeriti can print, copy and scan using their student or staff card (cf. provide your card with the required balance via PingPing!). 
External readers (without library card) are currently not able to use these facilities.

You can make use of PCs and/or browse the UHasselt network on your laptop/tablet

Visitors can make free use of the desktops at hand in the library. You can also log in with your own device on the UHasselt wireless network. External readers can ask a wifi guest account via; this account is available for 24 hours.
In the reading rooms of the university library the Eduroam network is also accessible. Eduroam is an international collaboration between educational institutes and enables students, members of staff and emeriti of the associated institutes to register at another associated institute using their own user names and passwords. All Flemish universities are associated to Eduroam. On the Eduroam website a full overview of member universities and university colleges can be found.
