About the Library

Fontys University of Applied Sciences currently has a total of 14 Libraries located in Den Bosch (1), Eindhoven (6), Sittard (1), Tilburg (4), Veghel (1) and Venlo (1). Fontys students, Fontys staff and external candidates/students may freely access these facilities. Alumni, post-active students and other external parties may also access the Libraries upon provision of a valid ID. To make use of the Library facilities, they may request a Library card.

Digital Library

In addition to the physical Libraries, Fontys also has a Digital Library. This is freely accessible via the website, www.fontys.edu/library. Via the Digital Library, you can access various searching facilities and a wide range of online resources. Licensed resources are only accessible to Fontys students and staff. Detailed information regarding the possibilities and conditions of use associated with the Fontys Libraries has been outlined in the Library Regulations.


Each Fontys Library is a component of the institute (or institutes) at which it is located. The Digital Library has been developed and is managed by Dienst Onderwijs en Onderzoek.


Fontys has defined basic principles and core values for the Libraries for the longer term and translated these into a vision statement.
