The Mediacentrum

The Mediacentrum is the central library facility of Windesheim University of Applied Sciences. The physical library is located in the main building of Windesheim Zwolle, behind the reception. In addition to a large collection of books, we also offer hospitable (silent) study rooms and meeting places.

A lot of our services and information are available online via our website. Our extensive range of digitally available content is optimally consistent with education.
