De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Open group discussion for students with a disability 4 June

Would you like to talk to other students with a disability, exchange experiences, ask questions about how other students deal with this and learn from each other? Sign up via this link for an open group discussion on Thursday 4 June: subscribe here or email to

Studying with a functional disability or long-term illness requires extra effort in normal times and now it is even more difficult with Corona. Many of us find it more difficult to maintain structure, depressions can be exacerbated and sometimes the extra (exam) facilities which we are entitled to are not taken into account.

Student platform Student Onbeperkt is committed to students with disabilities or long-term disorders at TU. That is why we organize an open discussion evening on Thursday 4 June at 7:30 pm. We will come together digitally in separate groups for each disability (if possible). In those groups you can exchange experiences and share tips, in a safe environment

In addition, we work together with Education and Student Affairs (ESA) to identify what people with a disability encounter and what support needs there are. ESA will include this in their plans to ensure student well-being in these difficult times.


  • A pleasant conversation with your fellow students from Delft, in small groups per disability.
  • It is on Thursday 4 June, starting at 7:30 PM.
  • Sign up at:
  • If you enter your name and email, you will receive an invitation by email with the conversation link.
  • There will be Dutch groups and English groups.
  • If you have any questions, you can email them to

Restart university: update 20 May

Yesterday evening the Dutch Prime Minister announced new relaxations to the coronavirus measures. These relaxations create room for some educational activities on campus.

TU Delft has already decided to organise all Q4 education and examinations online and this will remain so. However, we will now investigate whether and under what conditions we may organise small-scale practicals and graduation work on campus from 15 June.

It is still too early to say what we will be doing after Q4, as it is clear that here we will have to make choices. We are doing our best to provide more clarity in the short term.

We are currently looking at what is possible and how and when it is best to restart.

The Student Council elections at the institutional level and the Student Council elections at the faculty level are due to take place on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 May 2020.

Please use your right to vote!

Election Rules

We have a number of rules of conduct to ensure that the elections go smoothly. These rules are included in  the section on  the Student Council Election Rules, as appendix 3.1 in  the Student Charter: Student charter. It is important that every voter ensures that he or she votes without being influenced by other voters and that he or she withholds from direct manipulation of other students.
