Access general rules

Access with the Green Pass 

From 1 September 2021 to access the libraries you must wear a mask and have a valid Covid-19 green certification (Green Pass). To access the rooms and services, you must also make a reservation through Easy Planning or MyUniVE app.
The Green Pass is not necessary for loan and return books sevices if you don't plan to stay in the library for a long time.

Access with EasyPlanning or MyUniVE app

Due to the health emergency and according to the ministerial decrees and the University provisions, to access libraries and book services, University members must use EasyPlanning or MyUniVE app.
Also specific categories of non-university members can access libraries and services (see information below).
The access to libraries for high school students, citizens and students from other universities (except IUAV) is still suspended until further notice.
