Reading disabled students

The loan period for textbooks can be extended if you can prove that you have a reading disability. The information on the extended loan period is registered on approval by the student. Your loan period for textbooks will be 3 weeks. When renewing the loan, the loan period is 2 weeks.

Make an appointment with the loans coordinator at your library unit. If you have a dyslexia assessment, bring it to the meeting. You can also bring a recommendation for special arrangements in your studies from your university or university of applied sciences.
