Support us with books

We need books in our university! Please support us with a book, or two… or many more! We will write your name on it and it will stay with us in the underground for the next 100 years!
The University of the Underground is curating live events in collaboration with our venue partners De Marktkantine in Amsterdam and Village Underground in London. In this context, we will run book clubs; open to all.
Go to this link to donate books from our wish list. Or mail us your favourite books and records:
