Coronavirus update 14 April

Check the corona webpage for all TU Delft updates.

In the press conference of 13 April, the government announced that it still has the intention to allow more physical education from 26 April under certain conditions. The aim is that all students will be able to come to campus for self-study, group work or physical education at least once a week from the end of April, in combination with the use of quick tests. This will be decided in the week of 19 April. How this will actually work out is unknown at the moment, but as universities we are very happy with this intention and look forward to more education on campus.

National housing survey students 2021


The Housing survey students 2021 (Wonen als student 2021) is a national survey to find out how many students will be studying where in the coming years and how these students want to live. This survey is carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of the Interior, colleges and universities.

If you want to contribute to more and better suited student housing, please participate in the survey by clicking on the following link: www.wonenalsstudent.nl

The questionnaire consists of about 40 questions and takes around 10 minutes.

Participants have the chance to win several prizes:
■ Airpods Pro with wireless charging case (worth € 279)
■ The North Face Base Camp Duffelbag – Large (worth € 135)
■ 2x pimp your room with the Ikea gift card (worth € 50)
■ 4x Bol.com gift card (worth € 25)

How will your answers be used?
The results of the housing needs survey will be processed along with information from other sources in the
Student Housing Report. Thanks to this report the organisation will know how many students will be living in the various student cities in the upcoming years and especially how they would like to live. This knowledge is used to
determine the required number and type of student housing per city and then adjust the building plans for
the coming years.

How will you be kept up to date with the results?
The questionnaire will remain active up to April 23. After the summer the results will become available on
the website www.wonenalsstudent.nl

TU Delft builds supercomputer on own campus

Academics working in fields including physics, biology and mobility increasingly require computing power to solve and analyse complex problems. To clear the way for such research, TU Delft is building the Delft High-Performance Computing Centre (DHPC). This supercomputer complements existing national and cloud-based facilities, and offers academics and students greater flexibility when conducting their research. The arrival of the supercomputer is accompanied by a comprehensive training programme addressing the effective use of computing facilities. The contract with supplier Fujitsu was signed this week, and the facility is expected to be operational in autumn 2021.

X will be open an hour longer as of 31 March

In the press conference of 23 March it was announced that the current measures will be extended by three weeks until 20 April. However, the curfew starting time will be moved up an hour, which means that X can stay open an hour longer from Wednesday 31 March. The opening hours will therefore be 8:00 to 21:00 on weekdays and 9:00 to 21:00 on weekends.

The current schedule of the outdoor sports associations’ training sessions will remain basically unchanged. We will, however, look into the possibility of allowing certain of the indoor sports associations to train outside in the extra time slots that become available. We will discuss this with the associations in question.
