Where to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner on campus?


Jamming on campus?

As you probably have noticed, traffic lights have been installed at two places on our campus. The lights at the Jaffalaan / Rotterdamseweg intersection will be permanent, while the Jaffalaan / Mekelweg intersection is a pilot scheme which will run for three months.

Why? The huge number of cyclists during the morning rush hour makes traffic for everybody quite a challenge.  The idea is to regulate these traffic flows so that cyclists can reach the TU Delft Campus safely and car drivers can get in and out of their neighbourhood easily. We will be seeing whether the traffic lights provide a suitable solution to the problem.

Word dit jaar study buddy!

New printers on campus

After an extensive tendering process, Xerox emerged as the new supplier for TU Delft. All Ricoh printers are replaced by similar Xerox printers. The way we print does not change.

Good to know:

  • If you want to print from your own computer, you will need to install the printer yourself. Manuals can be found at the website.
  • You can also use the online Xerox portal for printing. Check
  • You can upload print credits for Xerox via
  • Credit for Ricoh printers can’t be used on the new Xerox printers, so you have to upload new credit on you campus card for now. Later on, your remaining credit for Ricoh printers will be automatically transferred to Xerox; this is expected to happen in September.

All available information can be found at If you still have a problem with the new printers, please let us know right away at the Service Desk. We will then respond as soon as possible.
