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.

Less messages on student news

We are also taking a break, which means that we won’t post as many messages on Studentnews as we do during the year.  Would you like to share your summer experiences with us? Send an e-mail to

Ooops! Forwarded TU mail may not arrive

If you automatically forward your TU emails to another email address outside the TU, for example to your private email address, they may not arrive. When emails are forwarded, they are given a digital characteristic (a kind of signature) which means that they are no longer recognised by some receiving email servers and are therefore refused. Investigations are underway into the cause of the problem. For the time being, you are advised not to forward your TU emails automatically. Emails sent from TU Delft to your TU email address will arrive as normal.

Technical details
The problem for the most part occurs when both the sender and the recipient use ‘DKIM’ with their email servers. The email is given a kind of signature when it is sent. The TU Delft server subsequently forwards the email to, for example, a Gmail address. Some receiving email servers detect that the email has in someway been changed during the forwarding process, so that the email no longer matches the DKIM signature. The email will then be refused and not delivered. A non-delivery report will be sent to the sender, but this will not be delivered for the same reason.

If you have any questions, please contact your building’s Service Desk.

A short reminder to not forget to unenrol after the final part of your study

Have you completed the final part of your study? Please be aware that you need to send a request to terminate your enrolment via Studielink as it will not be done automatically. Tuition fees need to be paid up to and including the last month of your enrolment. Please note! After 31 May it is only possible to unenrol per 31 August. You still have to pay tuition fee for the months of July and August. Retroactive unenrolment is not allowed.
Visit the SA website for more information regarding unenrolment and/or possible refund of tuition fees.

Living in Delft?

Also when you stop studying and are living in Delft, don’t forget to get unregistered in Delft as well. Report your move to your new municipality or when you are relocating abroad and people are staying behind at the address you are leaving, you need to report your departure in person at the Delft Registration Office.

From 1 July: no more texting, YouTubing and google-mapping on your bike!

This new piece of legislation is very relevant for most of you. 🚲 Anyone cycling from this Monday 1 July with his or her phone, tablet, navigation system or other device in hand can receive a fine of 95 euros. Handsfree use of your phone remains allowed. With this prohibition, the government wants to ensure safety for all road users. Be careful! #wasteofmoney #safetraffic

Design competition 2019 Markt Lander

The assignment for the 2019 design competition for first year Mechanical Engineering students has almost reached its end. Based on the Insight Mars lander, eighty first-year student teams have build their own ‘Marktlander’ This year: a marslander who can take a beating. Come and have a look for yourself.

The goal is to build a self-propelling mechanism that can continue its movement after a fall from table height, and then deliver a ‘Golden Box’. Fall resistance is key.

Where and when?

The design competition for first-year Mechanical Engineering students will take place on 19 June 2019.

Daily schedule: Programme (in Dutch, subject to change)
Location: the Markt in Delft

XXL opening hours study locations during exam period

Ready, set? Recycle your PET!

Climate change, oceans full of garbage, the loss of natural resources: our planet has many problems. Big issues, but you can start small. You don’t have to be a world saviour to do something for the future. Just start at our campus.

Recycle your pet bottle

In collaboration with Coca Cola, Maas and Cormet, TU Delft will start a pilot for separating and collecting PET bottles on the campus. By doing so, we hope to contribute to the recycling of valuable PET bottles and the reduction of litter.

On 17 June the pilot will start at four locations: the Aula, CEG, Aerospace Engineering and Architecture and the Built Environment. At those four locations, you can throw your PET bottles in the appropriate waste bins. By the end of 2019, we want to collect 40% of the sold PET bottles on campus at the pilot locations.
