Student ID card
Students receive a student ID card good for the length of their stay at the university. This card gives the student access to a variety of student facilities, including the library and computers.

Libraries
The Universiteit van Amsterdam has an extensive central University Library, with over four million volumes. In addition, a number of departments have their own libraries. The University Library is located in the city centre. It contains over four million books, 70,000 manuscripts, 500,000 letters, and 125,000 geographical maps. In the General Library you will also find specialised collections in the Department of Rare and Precious Works, the Manuscript and Writing Museum, the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana with its collection of material relating to Jewish history and culture, and the Department of Documentation on Social Movements. The General Library also has three reading rooms which provide students with a space where they can study quietly. In addition to the General Library, there are approximately 70 department libraries spread over the centre of Amsterdam. Your passport and Student ID card are required for registration at the General Library. To register for departmental libraries, a student ID card is usually sufficient.
