The HAN Study Centres are here for you! Our services can help you with your studies and research. From extensive library facilities to online resources. From personal coaching to training to improve your study skills.
Library loans, reservations and renewals
Need to borrow, reserve or renew books or other materials? You’re welcome at any of our 4 study centre locations. You can also make arrangements in advance online - see what and how below.
As a student, you can borrow books and other materials free of charge. You’ll need your HAN card. Use your card to check out materials at the self-service stations or just go to the front desk.
The standard loan period is 4 weeks, with the possibility of renewal. Please note! Some materials have a shorter loan period. This is indicated in our catalog and will be noted when you check out materials.
Is a book at another location? You can also request materials from Arnhem in Nijmegen and vice versa. Contact one of our staff members for assistance.
Finished with the materials? Return them to the place where you checked them out. Be sure to return (or renew) materials on time. Late returns are subject to a fine per item:
Days late Fine 1-7 days €1,00 8-14 days €2,00 15-21 days €3,00 30+ days €3,00 + €15,- (+ possibly new price)
If you incur a fine of more than €6, your account will be blocked and you will no longer be able to use all of the HAN Study Centres services.
Is the material you want to borrow already on loan? Then make a reservation. This doesn't cost anything and can be done at all HAN Study Centre locations. You can make a maximum of 10 reservations.
Is an item not on loan? Then you cannot reserve it.
You can easily reserve materials in the catalog:
Under loaned materials, click "reserve".
- Log in.
- Are you a student? Log in here with your HAN email address and password. If you are a staff member, log in with your HANaccount@han.nl and password.

- You'll receive an email when your reservation is ready to be picked up.
- You can pick up your reservation within one week by presenting your HAN card at the front desk of the selected study centre.
Of course, you can also visit the reception desk of a HAN study centre to make an appointment.
You can also request materials from Arnhem in Nijmegen and vice versa, but you can’t do this online. Contact one of our staff members for assistance.

lease note! If you incur a fine of more than €6, your account will be blocked and you will no longer be able to use all of the HAN Study Centres services. This also means that you will not be able to renew borrowed materials until the fine is paid. Is this the case for you? Then come to one of our reception desks to pay your fine.

Library loans at Radboud University
As a HAN user, you can apply for a RU library card. This gives you access to the physical collection of the Radboud University Library. This means that you can borrow materials that are available for loan and have access to non-loan materials in the library.
Student study spaces
Looking for a good place to study alone or with a group? There are many different study spaces available for HAN students. There are workstations with PCs, quiet areas, areas for group work and facilities for working with laptops.
Studying can be difficult for students with a disability or chronic illness. They often need special facilities. Read more about the resources and facilities available at HAN Study Centres here.

We are here to help you with digital learning resources! We offer free access to a wide range of high-quality learning resources, including e-books, videos and interactive modules. This allows us to facilitate flexible learning and share knowledge within and beyond the HAN community.
