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.

TU Delft Student News

Rob Mudde answers students’ questions

Why are different universities handling regulations differently? Why have tuition fees stayed the same, though the method of education has changed? Why have exchange programmes been cancelled? Students have many questions for the University.

In the following videos, Rob Mudde, Vice-Rector Magnificus, answers several questions from students. In video 1 he explains about the start of the academic year, COVID regulations and the quality of online education. In video 2, he answers questions including topics like minors, exchange programs, internships and financing.


Student campaign to contain Corona

Yesterday, a student campaign started in which the Delft student associations jointly address all students about their responsibility with regard to Corona, with the aim of preventing further contamination and thus ensuring that the city does not enter complete lockdown.

Read the campaign letter and see their poster with guidelines  to contain Corona.

Gisteren is de studentencampagne gestart waarbij de Delftse studentenverenigingen gezamenlijk alle studenten aanspreken op hun verantwoordelijkheid m.b.t. Corona met als doel om verdere besmettingen te voorkomen en daarmee te zorgen dat de stad niet in volledige lockdown komt.

Lees hier de oproep en bekijk hieronder de poster of download hem hier in PDF.





Increase of COVID-19 cases in Delft city

It is now the second week of the new academic year and we are happy to offer a mix of online and on-campus education for everyone.

At TU Delft, we have adopted various measures to create a safe study- and work environment, in accordance with the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) guidelines. As you may have heard, the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the city of Delft have increased in the past days.  We therefore urge you to strictly follow the general rules of conduct and, above all, to keep a 1.5 m distance from each other at all times. It’s easy to fall into our regular patterns, especially in social situations, new places, or when thinking about other things (like a new class!). Remembering to keep to the restrictions that have been put in place can be difficult, but they’re necessary to ensure the campus is as safe as possible.

What to do if you or your housemates have symptoms?

If you or one of your housemates have symptoms, get tested! Until your test results are back, observe strict isolation and do not come to the campus under any circumstances, no matter how inconvenient it may be. Read more

For information regarding COVID-19 measures please go to: > coronavirus > students

By following the measures, we can work together to help keep students and employees safe and healthy!

Don’t 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 through Studielink as it will not be done automatically. Tuition fees need to be paid up to and including the last month of your enrolment. Enrolment termination with retroactive effect is not possible.

Take care of yourself! New programmes available in our e-health tool

Last year we introduced the e-health wellbeing tool for students and PhDs.  Gezondeboel is an online tool where students and PhDs can improve their mental wellbeing in a free, simple and anonymous way. Because we received positive reactions the number of programmes has increased. Now 19 programmes are available in English (instead of 5).

Examples of new programmes:

Overactive and Inattentive, Living in a different Culture, Worrying, Sleep well and Managing your money.

What to do in case of infection

For Dutch please scroll down

If you or one of your housemates are showing symptoms, get tested. Until the test results are known, you should observe strict home isolation and under no circumstances come to campus, however inconvenient that may be.

Write down who you have had contact with over the past few days.  This concerns people with whom you:

  • have been together for more than 15 minutes
  • had contact less than 1.5 meters away
  • have been together from 2 days before the complaints started, until the moment you stayed at home

If the test shows that you do not have Covid-19 and you are feeling well enough, you can come to campus again.

If the test shows that you do have Covid-19, the Area Health Authority GGD will contact you to start contact tracing. Pass your list of contacts to the GGD immediately. Subsequently, follow instructions of the GGD at all times. The GGD may ask you to inform your contacts (at the university) about your infection. For help you can contact the department of Safety & Security via or telephone number +31 (0)15 27 82777.

The GGD will contact the university if (clusters of) infections give reason to do so. Information about the health of employees must be handled very carefully. For privacy reasons, universities do not and may not request or share health information of employees or students, not even in the case of Covid-19.

If you, as a student, are unable to attend on campus educational activities due to home isolation, please contact your study advisor and we will try to find a fitting solution.

For information regarding Covid-19 measures please go to: > coronavirus


Wat te doen in geval van besmetting

Als jijzelf of een van je huisgenoten klachten hebben, laat je dan testen. Tot de testuitslag bekend is, is strikte thuisisolatie noodzakelijk en kun je onder geen voorwaarde naar de campus komen, hoe vervelend dat ook is.

Schrijf op met wie je de afgelopen dagen contact hebt gehad. Het gaat vooral om mensen met wie je:

  • langer dan 15 minuten samen bent geweest
  • contact had op minder dan 1,5 meter afstand
  • samen bent geweest vanaf 2 dagen voordat de klachten begonnen, tot het moment dat je thuis bleef

Als uit de test blijkt dat je geen Covid-19 hebt en je voelt je goed genoeg, kun je weer naar de campus komen.

Als uit de test wel blijkt dat je wel Covid-19 hebt, zal de GGD contact met je opnemen om een contactonderzoek op te starten. Geef je lijst met contacten direct na vaststelling door aan de GGD. Volg daarna de aanwijzingen van de GGD altijd op. Mogelijk vraagt de GGD je om zelf je contacten (op de universiteit) te informeren over je besmetting. Voor hulp kun je dan contact opnemen met de afdeling Integrale Veiligheid via of via telefoonnummer +31 (0)15 27 82777.

De GGD neemt contact op met de universiteit indien (clusters van) besmettingen hiertoe aanleiding geven. Met informatie over de gezondheid van medewerkers moet zeer secuur worden omgegaan. Universiteiten mogen om privacy-redenen geen gezondheidsinformatie van medewerkers of studenten opvragen of delen, ook niet als het over Covid gaat.

Als je als student door thuisisolatie geen campusonderwijs kan volgen, neem dan contact op met je studieadviseur, dan zal worden gezocht naar een maatwerkoplossing.
