Have you visited the library in the new Horizon building yet?

During the summer we moved 2 library collections (Tourism and Hotel & Facility) to the convent (a.k.a. The Horizon Building) and one library collection (Games & Media) has moved to the Sibeliuslaan.

As from September 2019 the collections of Built Environment & Logistics, Games & Media and Leisure & Events will be integrated into the convent library, so we can welcome all students in a brand new central library on the BUas Campus. At the moment we are still working on some issues concerning lighting, façade, checkpoint PCs.
