How can I reserve an individual study place or group work place?

Want to be sure of a study place? It is possible to reserve an individual workplace on campus. It is also possible if you want to reserve a space for several people, for example if you want to work in a group, plan a meeting or organize an event.

What do you want to reserve?

Workplace / study place (up to and including 10 persons)

You can reserve a workspace via the online reservation system (LibCal).

Reserve a study place 

  • You will receive a confirmation via Tilburg University e-mail;
  • In addition non-scheduled lecture rooms are available for self-study. Reservations for these spaces is not required;
  • Landing spots are available in the various buildings. These are not suitable for long-term study, but you can use them between lectures. This can be done without reservation.


  • The workplaces and student meeting rooms can be reserved from 7 days in advance (incl. weekend days);
  • Reservations can be up to 40 hours a week (across all locations);
  • Make sure you can show a valid Tilburg University card to the security guard. In this way we can ensure together that only registered students use a place;
  • If you have reserved a place to study, you may also be asked to show the reservation confirmation;

Check in and out

  • Check in via the QR code, if you do not do this the reservation expires 30 min. after the start time of your reservation;
  • Check out via the QR code, this ensures that the workspace is free for others and the minutes become available again;
  • Use the QR code on the door sign or table when checking in to a group meeting room.


  • The workplaces are cleaned daily.


If you have any questions about the application or booking rules please contact: Facility Service Desk at facilityservicedesk@tilburguniversity.edu.

Attention please

  • The main rule in handling room requests is that lectures and exams take priority over other activities at all times;
    • A request for a reservation in an exam period can only be scheduled 4 weeks prior to the start of that period. Please submit a request only then.
  • An assigned room can, in exceptional cases, be cancelled by the scheduling team if this is necessary for the smooth progress of education. If possible, you will be assigned another room.
  • If for any reason the reserved room will not be used, please cancel the reservation using the same email address or system (LibCal /Outlook for example) as was used to request the reservation so that the room can be reserved by someone else.
  • The arrangement of furniture must be returned to its original position when leaving the room.
  • It is not allowed to exceed the maximum number of people in terms of room capacity.
  • Food and/or beverages are not permitted in the lecture rooms.
  • Reservation requests which are not provided with the required information will not be processed.
  • The university is closed on national holidays.
