As a student at the Vrije Universiteit you can activate your student card as a library card.

This can be done as follows:

-    First make a personal library account by logging in once with your VU-net-id.
-    On the back of your student card you will find a 14 digit barcode starting with 20000.
-    Send this together with your VU-net-id via an app to 06 - 2569 4822, or mail it to
-    You can also send a photo of the barcode together with your VU-net-id via an app.

Vrije Universiteit employees can obtain a free library card from    from the university library information desk in the main building.

Due to the current Covid measures, we are unable to accept new members who are not enrolled or employed at the Vrije Universiteit.
