Extra student work spaces
The days that students only came to the campus for lectures or lab work are long gone. You guys are here all day, either working together or study in quiet surroundings. And there are a lot of you, so we needed more and better study workplaces.
This January existing study workplaces were improved and extra places were realised. Here’s where they are:
- in the Library the former offices on the south wing are turned into study work places
- at the 3mE faculty more than 100 places are upgraded with new chairs
- at Civil Engineering on the ground floor between Lecture Hall A and B 48 extra student work spaces are realised and in Studoc on first floor are 32 workplaces adjusted.
Of course, these student work places are available for all TU Delft students. So 3mE and CEG students: be nice to your guests!
How to find existing study places
If the well-known places in the Library are occupied, where do you go? Not all locations of student work spaces seem to be familiar to all students. Fear not, during exam periods temporary extra places are available in the Aula (500) and in the Fellowship. Outside the exam periods you will also find study workplaces in the Fellowship. Plus, you can enjoy good snacks, coffee, food and drinks at the Food market there.
Protip: it’s helpful to know that the TU Delft has divided the spots into three categories:
- Silence work spaces: here you can study for a longer period in relatively silent areas with or without your computer; these spots usually have natural daylight and can be found at the more quiet spots in the buildings
- Short term places: here you can work for a shorter time, individually or with a group. Mostly found near lecture halls, stairs, corridors and pantries.
- Meeting places: this study places are multifunctional, have different furniture with all sort of seating and tables; most of these places are found in the neighbourhood of restaurants or other catering facilities. The main purpose is to meet and discuss.
Looking for an available computer workplace? Easy peasy, lemon squeezy: check was.tudelft.nl (Workspace Availability Service) for available places. Select the faculty or the building and boom! You’ll see where you can go. That will save you a lot of time going around looking for a computer place. Time you can use reading Student News. Or study, maybe.
Protip #2: The Fellowship computer rooms will be posted under the tab of the faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
