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.

An opportunity for international students to improve the TU Delft experience!

Are you an international student at our University?

We’re excited that you chose to study at TU Delft and want to hear about your experience here.
Your input will help us understand how to improve our services and the experience of future students. Let us know what you think and help the next generation.  Thank you.

Take the online survey on 14 November – keep an eye on your mailbox for it!

How can we improve our catering facilities?

Would you like to give feedback about the catering facilities on campus? From Monday 11 until Friday 22 November you may be asked for your opinion by one of the student interviewers (recognizable by a gray sweater with a Food & More logo). Your feedback will be used for improvement.

Start Renovation of the Library

On Monday November 11 the renovation of the Library will start. All the study rooms, the living room, the printing area and most project rooms will be renovated over the coming next six weeks. This way the Library will start the new year refreshed and improved. Check out more information on what rooms will be renovated when and what you can expect in the coming weeks on www.tudelft.nl/library/maintenance.

A big thank you from all of us @TU Delft 👌

A big thank you from all of us @TU Delft for completing the National Student Survey (Nationale Studenten Enquête)! The response was higher than last year, and on all subjects the score increased significantly compared to last year.

We are very happy since these results show your appreciation of our ongoing effort for your education.

Could we count on you again next year? A new version of the survey is expected early 2020 and you will be asked to complete it again. The results of this year. 

Start construction of the new education building Echo

Another education building is in the making. The construction of Echo will start November 11th and will take two years: at the start of the 2021-2022 academic year you will be able to follow courses in the brand new building!

The growing number of students in combination with the need for larger and more flexible educational spaces has led to the development of an additional educational building.

What do you notice about the work?
Although the work is noticeable, nuisance is limited as much as possible. During the exam period there are no noise causing activities. For example, a number of piles are drilled into the ground instead of being hammered. Furthermore, the accessibility of the area is guaranteed: with the exception of a few short road closures, for example for transport, you can access all roads.

Extra study places, sustainable and energy-neutral
Just like the Pulse education building, Echo will be used for all faculties and study programmes. A total of 1,700 teaching places and 360 study places will be provided here! The emphasis at Echo is on medium-sized and large education halls, varying from 64 to 700 people. Some rooms can be flexibly partitioned or merged. Echo also offers many opportunities to meet fellow students, with good catering facilities and longer opening hours. The design and layout of Echo meet high sustainability standards and the building will be energy-neutral. The area around Echo will become greener in the coming years, with more designated areas for pedestrians and cyclists.

XXL opening hours Library and Fellowship during exam period

During the upcoming exam period TU Delft facilitates you with extra opening hours to study at the Library and the Fellowship. Starting from 19 October until 7 November the opening hours of the Library will be daily from 08:00AM to 02:00AM. The doors of the Fellowship will be open on weekdays from 08:00AM to 00:00AM and in weekends from 08.00AM to 22.00AM. Of course you also have the availability of PULSE which has regular opening hours from 08:00AM to 00:00AM, also in weekends.
