Preface Dear future student of Delft, It’s about to start, your student days! The days of high school are finally over. So no more getting notes if you come late and no more mandatory schedule. This is the moment of your life where you will make new friends, get to know a new city and develop yourself. To get this time off to a good start, it’s absolutely valuable to start with the OWee! The past two years have been difficult years. You experienced something that will later be remembered and that everyone will be talking about for years to come. The whole world came to a standstill because of the Corona pandemic. Fortunately, this annoying time now seems to be behind us and behind you. The restaurants are open again, you can buy clothes in the store again and that mouth cap is finally allowed to take off. You have probably also had online lessons in recent years. Hopefully this time is behind you and you absolutely no longer have to turn on your webcam when you just woke up.

from music to alternative, or from party animal to travel. During the OWee, all these associations and organizations open their doors so that you can taste a little bit of everything, so come by! Besides all these associations and the city, the OWee also introduces you to something else that is absolutely important. You will meet new friends during this week. I speak from personal experience when I say you make friends for life here. When I walked the OWee myself I had a group with 5 girls and 4 guys. Four years later I still see this group every week and I even live with the guys from my group. So I can really promise you, here you will make friends for life! Happy reading and I look forward to seeing you at the OWee! Niels Oppelaar Chairman OWee Board 2022

In front of you is a student bible, with all the information that is of value to start your student life well. This contains information about the many associations that Delft has, where the nicest catering tents are, or what the rich history of Delft looks like. This is not only very useful to read now. Be sure to read the BINAS again if you’re already studying! The start of your beautiful student days is the OWee. During this week Delft will show everything it has to offer and that is much more than just studying. Delft is the city where the opportunities are endless! Thanks to more than 60 associations, there is something for everyone to do next to his or her studies. The options range from faith to sports,

Introduction Studying and social safety https://www.tudelft.nl/en/student/well-being-and-study Slowly but surely we are emerging from the coronavirus pandemic. Normal life is gradually being resumed, and hopefully by the time you read this we will be almost back to business as usual. You will be able to concentrate fully on your new studies, your new city and making new friends. In short: making the most of this new phase in your life. During this same period, however, we have also been forced to face other facts. We have seen that social safety is not a given, but something that has to be secured and maintained. Inappropriate conduct is not something that happens in faroff countries, but may take place just around the corner, or even closer. And here too, it cannot be denied that nobody can grow and develop well in an unsafe environment. Combating the pandemic required the efforts of many people and it required solidarity. This applies equally well to making and having a safe social climate. But just what do we mean by ‘safe social climate’ and how is it achieved? On the website of the Inspectorate of Education, we read that: A school is safe when the social, psychological and physical safety of its pupils is not violated by the actions of others. You can easily replace the word school with university, and pupil with student. But a university needs a wider definition. Social safety needs to extend beyond the university itself – the campus –

and take in student life in its widest sense. We need to ask ourselves if we are a socially safe community. And sadly the answer is not always unreservedly yes. Female students complain about inappropriate conduct and say that this sometimes takes serious forms. International students say that in our community too there are forms of discrimination and exclusion, to give just two examples. It is up to us to change this. It’s not easy, but it is possible. By asking yourself the question: do I behave respectfully to others, am I inclusive? Do I try to be aware of my own biases? But also: do I give enough space to people whose beliefs are different to my own? But what if you are the one experiencing inappropriate conduct or discrimination? Talk about it, with your academic counsellor, one of our university psychologists, the Ombuds Officer or somebody else that you trust. It’s also important that we pick up signals about this as a university. Because only together can we create this safe environment. I wish you all a socially safe year.

Introduction Mayor of Delft Dear new student, Delft, Of Absolute Value! No doubt you will very soon find out what this theme stands for. But before you do, allow me to congratulate you on your decision to come over to Delft for your studies! The future will prove this to be your best decision so far. I am convinced of that. What’s more, I hope and trust this will be your first in a series of best decisions to come. I could easily sum up myriads of reasons why the chance of such a series of best decisions falling on you is considerable. However, it would take away the element of surprise if I did. It is way better for you to find it out for yourself, step by step. Best decision following best decision. Until the day you conclude and decide that Delft has become of Absolute Value to you – speaking of best decisions. And believe me: that day will inevitably turn up. It is a universal fact that best decisions cannot be taken without having the best of information. We therefore send you this BINAS (Belangrijke Informatie Naar Aankomende Studenten; Important Information For Arriving Students). It contains everything you need for being able to actually take that series of best decisions that lies in store for you. Of course your most significant best decision is your Delft, of Absolute Value!-decision. Remember? Your decision to conclude that Delft has become of Absolute Value to you. So: read this BINAS and find all you need to know as a newly arriving Delft student. If you do, your Delft, of Absolute Value!-decision will turn up out of its own accord. No trouble on your part whatsoever.

And how about the interim? Make sure you turn out a good friend, neighbour and fellow-citizen of Delft. Enjoy your new life in Delft. The full harvest of your studies. The ways in which you could be of Absolute Value to Delft – and how Delft can be of Absolute Value to you. Marja van Bijsterveldt Mayor of Delft


Rector Magnificus TU Delft Delft, Of Absolute Value! For many years, science was regarded as absolute truth, or at least as a search for it. Today, as an academic community, we have to defend ourselves against the notion that science is ‘just another opinion’. Science is of course neither one thing nor the other. It is based on empirical evidence, on observations therefore, not on opinions. Those observations and measurements, however, are connected to systems we have defined ourselves. Therefore, they are relative, and subject to advancing insight. But what about mathematics, you may think, isn’t that an absolute truth? That too is open to debate. There are scientists who believe that from the Big Bang onwards the universe has been unfolding according to mathematical principles. Mathematics is therefore a property of the universe. Others believe that humankind invented mathematics to explain the world around us. Perhaps one day, progressive insight will tip the scales in favour of one or the other of these theories.

So does TU Delft represent an absolute value? After educating engineers for the past 180 years, we are at least a fixture in the Dutch educational system. Delft engineers are internationally renowned for their knowledge, quality, professionalism and a solution-oriented approach. So what does that all mean to you, a new generation of students? On the one hand, our expectations are high and our programmes of study are not easy. After all, you will have to uphold this excellent reputation in your professional career. On the other hand, the labour market will welcome you warmly once you graduate. A solid engineering education opens doors and paves the way to the future. That is why I say: studying at TU Delft is definitely of absolute value! Tim van der Hagen Rector Magnificus Delft University of Technology

In these times of crisis and conflict, we may be seeking harder than ever for absolute values and truths in the belief that they can offer us guidance. However, it is hard to move away from an absolute standpoint once you have taken it up. Much better to leave room for the opinions of others and to be open to the mutability of knowledge. Nevertheless, I do believe in fixed values. Integrity, equality, respect for others, openness: these are all principles that make working and living together – in both university and society - possible and meaningful.

Introduction Executive Board The Hague University of Applied Sciences ‘Delft, of Absolute Value!’ is the theme of this year’s OWee. A theme that is open to multiple interpretations. When talking about value, the obvious choice in Delft is to look at mathematics, where the absolute value of a real number is always positive. This absolute value or modulus of a real number or other quantity is generally understood to be its length or magnitude, disregarding other properties such as sign or direction. The absolute value can also be used to indicate how far that real number is from zero. You are at the start of a new study, at the ‘zero point’. A study that can be measured in many units, but that is so much more than the number of lectures you will attend, the hours you will study, the exams you will take, the number of credits you will earn and the number of years from now until you reach the finish line and are a long way from where you are starting now. Your studies will not only be of value to you, but they will also be of value to your immediate environment and to society, where you will be able to put everything you learn to use. The reality is that, unlike a real number, the experiences you will have will not always be positive, but they will be worthwhile in the long run because they will help you learn, grow and give direction to your future. You will learn more about yourself and others. You will embark on new adventures, create new stories. Many doors to your future will open. And you will be doing all this valuable work in Delft. A city where students from several universities of applied sciences and TU Delft are conducting pioneering research and finding answers to our increasingly complex world. Present and future research that changes our daily lives, either subtly or very visibly. This is where innovations emerge that will forever change the way we travel, interact

10

and care for each other. We will encourage you to take a critical look at yourself and the world around you, so that you can determine for yourself what adds value and what does not. The ‘Important Information to All Students’ (Belangrijke Informatie Naar Alle Studenten, BINAS) will help you do this. Because adding value is not something you do only in the classroom or in the lab, but also outside of these environments. And you don’t do it alone, but all together. This reference work contributes to that. You will enjoy it both during and after the Introduction Week (OWee). I hope that Delft can add to your value. The warmth of the city and its inhabitants, its rich cultural and historical background, the camaraderie of student life, the enormous wealth of knowledge available: I hope you will find everything you need here. Even long after you will have crossed the finishing line of your education. Learn a lot, but above all: make it count! Rajash Rawal on behalf of the Executive Board of The Hague University of Applied Sciences


Executive Board Inholland University of Applied Sciences Dear student, Welcome to student life in Delft. You are stepping into a new world where you are going to work on sustainability, innovative, technological and engineering issues and create solutions that make a difference to our society. This is of absolute value! Today marks the start of your student life, which encompasses much more than only your studies.

Introduction OWee Board 2022

Dear future student of Delft, To ensure that you feel at home in Delft as soon as possible, the OWee Board is organizing an introduction week in which all future students of Delft can participate. This week is of absolute value if you want to get to know the whole of Delft in one week. Without all the associations, clubs and organizations for students in Delft, the student culture of the city would not be complete. The OWee is the best way to get to know fellow students, current students and the city of Delft. We, as organizers, do everything we can to give you an unforgettable week! We have been organizing the introduction week full-time since February.

12

The OWee board consists of eight Delft students from various studies and associations. They are assisted by two supervisors: Alexander Lokhorst and Sanne Gijsberts. In addition, they are also assisted by two advisors: Barbara de Vries and Mennolt Verhaar. This year’s OWee board consists of the following students: Niels Oppelaar Chairman Elisabetta Foglia Secretary & Head of Participants Marijn van Tienhoven Treasurer Pepijn de Haan Vice-Chairman & Head of Acquisition Eveline Gielisse External Affairs Auke Sonneveld Logistics I Aileen van der Steen Logistics II Annabel Fransen Head of Communication & Design


Studying in Delft, where does it start? EJW, OWee and KMT You have finished high school and now it’s finally here, your college life is about to begin! But what is waiting for you now? Various events take place before the start of your studies that ensure that you feel completely at home in Delft. There is a freshman weekend of your studies, an introduction week for all prospective students in Delft and an introduction time for those who register with an association. The OWee will take place again this year! After a few corona editions, we hope to set up another smashing week for you this year. Follow our social media channels for the latest updates and information. We hope to see you in the OWee. We’re going to make something beautiful out of it!

associations in Delft and you make the city your own. The OWee is therefore of absolute value to make Delft your new home and to give your student life a good start. Introduction Time (KMT) & Open Practices/ Rehearsals If you join one of the many associations in Delft, there is a good chance that after the OWee you will have to keep a few days or evenings free for the Introduction Time (KMT) or open training sessions/rehearsals of this association. The length of the KMTs and the dates differ per association. The associations take your study into account (everything is planned around this) and ensure that you have a place to sleep in Delft if it is several days.

It is also possible that the association you choose still has an Introduction Time or provides open training/rehearsals. Read these BINAS carefully and if an association appeals to you, keep an eye on the communication of this association. The website and e-mail addresses of the associations are at the bottom of the page of the associations in the blue bar. Freshman weekend (EJW) All study associations (the association that is affiliated with your study) organize a freshman weekend or EJW for all its upcoming first-year students. This is above all a very nice and pleasant weekend where you get to know your fellow students from the same study by doing different activities for a weekend, so that you can sit together in class and study together. Introduction week (OWee) Most Freshmen weekends follow on from the OWee. The OWee is the Reception Week of Delft, as you may have read before. During this reception week you will discover the city of Delft together with your OWee group, who often come over from the First Years Weekend. You get to know all the

weekend away with your new fellow students. Here you will get to know your fellow students so that you will not have to sit alone in the lecture hall. For more information, check the website of your study association, or read more in the BINAS! You can register for the freshman weekend via www.oweedelft.com

21-25 August - Basecamp You can chill out at the Basecamp throughout the week. Here you can get food, relax and participate in fun games and activities. The Absolute Value Festival will also take place here on Thursday. So this is a chill place to relax during the entire OWee, or to meet with your group after which you can start the day again! Sunday 21 August - Opening The OWee starts on Sunday afternoon with the Logistical Reception. At the reception you can get to know your future fellow students from other studies and recover from your first-year weekend. You will also receive your OWee wristband: your admission ticket for the whole week! After this we all have a barbecue during the Schie dinner, while a beautiful parade of associations shows you what Delft has to offer. We will close the evening with the grand OWee Opening Party!

Freshman Weekend The freshmen’s weekends precede the physical OWee. Almost all study associations organize a

Monday 22 August - Discover Delft Monday is all about the city of Delft. In the morning you gather with your OWee group for breakfast,


after which you continue to the Aula to pick up your backpack with nice goodies. The chairman of the OWee board and the Executive Board will also welcome everyone here during the Central Opening. After this there is the opportunity to get to know different places in the city in a fun way via the Discover Delft. Lunch will also be waiting for you there. Then there is a large Information Market where all associations, the municipality and companies present themselves with cool stunts and gadgets.

Tuesday 23 August - Association Day Tuesday is Association Day. You will visit many different associations where you can get a tour, do activities and get a taste of the atmosphere. Not sure yet whether you want to register with an association, or which one? Then this day is very important! You can also ask all your questions to an inspiring speaker during the College Tour today. What was his or her student life like? What would they advise you? In the evening you can discover the local catering industry during Taste Delft. Or you can chill out on the market during the Open Air Cinema.

it during the Backstage Campus Tour! Afterwards you will have the opportunity to get to know the student sports and cultural associations better. They will present themselves in a grand way during the Sports & Culture market. After this market, the day will be festively concluded with the legendary Cantus Sing-a-Long.

Thursday 25 August–Absolute Value Festival Did you have a nice week? Ready to study? During this day at Basecamp, becoming an independent student is central. Walk through the exhibition with cool projects and investigations, which you might also be involved in later. Or visit the many information stands, workshops and games that help you with everything you might encounter in your upcoming student days. Where should I go if my studies are not going well? How should I cook or clean? Where can I find a house? How do I order food online? In short, for every problem there is a solution and you can find it on Thursday!

Wednesday 24 August - Getting Together Wednesday starts with a tour of all the hidden spots of the campus. Have you ever been in a room where it is so quiet that you can hear your heart beating or see how a wind tunnel works? Discover

Alcohol Policy

Many of you are already 18 years old and therefore old enough to buy and consume alcohol. However, another part is not yet 18 years old and is therefore not allowed to buy and drink alcohol. Alcohol is inextricably linked to student culture. In Delft, this takes place largely outside the regular catering industry, within study and student associations, student houses and student events. In mid-2018, a collaboration was started between five student associations, the Youth and Alcohol Foundation, Red Cross Delft and Midden-Delfland, the Municipality of Delft and TU Delft. The reason for this was the observation that alcohol use among students deserves more attention.

This is because regular (excessive) use of alcohol by students who are often still young causes significant health risks. In addition, it can lead to adverse consequences for their environment in the form of nuisance and physical damage, effect on study results, but also damage to the image of students in general. In addition, drinking alcohol is not a ‘must’! For example, at all events where the OWee offers drinks, you will also be able to buy 0.0 drinks and soft drinks in addition to alcoholic drinks. There will also be events where no alcohol is served. The OWee is just as fun without alcohol!

During the OWee the following house rules apply: 1. Alcohol will not be served to anyone under the age of 18. Those under 18 will be given a different wristband to those aged 18 or over. You cannot take part in any Introduction Week event, including the evening programme, unless you are wearing a wristband. This will be checked at all events and student clubs. 2. You should always have a valid ID card on you during Introduction Week activities and at the evening events – even if you are over 18. 3. Any Introduction Week participant under the age of 18 caught consuming alcohol will be immediately removed from the activities/evening programme and their wristband will be confiscated. 4. A note will be made of the name of the Introduction Week participant in question. A decision will then be taken on whether the person in question can buy back their wristband. 5. It is not permitted to pass on alcoholic drinks to underage participants. Any breach of this rule will result in both parties having their wristbands confiscated on the spot. They will then no longer be able to take part. 6. Participants may not bring their own alcoholic drinks to Introduction Week events. 7. There will be a zero tolerance policy towards underage drinking and the use of drugs during the 2022 Introduction Week. 8. It is not permitted to use drugs, including laughing gas, during the Introduction Week.

17


Introduction Sustainability

This is what we do The OWee Board wants to organize an Introduction Week that is as sustainable as possible every year. This includes major and minor changes, all of which contribute to reducing the footprint we leave behind after the OWee. For example, this BINAS has been reduced by almost 100 pages in recent years. This saves us approximately 900 kilograms of paper!

• This year, a general sustainable event plan is being further developed in collaboration with TU Delft and several sustainability organizations. In this way, the OWee can make new parts more sustainable every year! • During the OWee, as many meals as possible are vegetarian. With this action we want to create more awareness and it also saves tens of kilos of meat.

In recent years, we have done our best to separate the waste flows as well as possible at every event that has been organised. We also ask for your help for this! Together with you, we can ensure that the waste of thousands of new students ends up in the right place as best as possible. Therefore, during and after the OWee, please dispose of your waste in the correct bin! In addition to the above points, we have a few more main priorities concerning sustainability: • We will never throw away leftover items from previous editions of the OWee. For example, we donate useful items such as shirts and bags to the Salvation Army. We also give leftover food a good spot, the food bank is often very happy with this! • At our events we use plastic hard cups as much as possible. In this way the cups can be used several times, so that much less plastic has to be used!

What can you do? You too can contribute to a better environment! Now that you start studying you get older, but this also involves a bit of responsibility. Are you aware of how sustainable you are? Check it out here! • How much meat do you actually eat? Is it possible to eat less? • Are you aware of the food you throw away every week? • Do you leave the light on during the day? Or is it possible to turn it off? • How warm is the heating? Could it be 2 degrees lower?

Delft Welcome to Delft! Many people refer to their time as a student as the best period of their lives. Leaving your parents, having your own place, new impressions, new friends, and of course a new city where so much remains to be discovered So we are pleased to welcome you to Delft, the student city par excellence. You may well have some of the best years of your life here. Much of your time as a student will be spent on the campus, of course, but Delft has so much more to offer

Leisure time Delft has countless bars, cafés, and outdoor terraces where you can go for a refreshing drink on hot sunny days, and restaurants where you can enjoy a great meal at a decent price. Have you just sat down on one of the four large squares in Delft, but do you actually need to do something online? No problem! Free Wi-Fi is available on all four squares, and you can log onto Eduroam (European network for students). Or do you fancy doing something more active? Wander along the canals, catch a boat tour, and discover Delft from the water. Or why not climb the 376 steps of the Nieuwe Kerk and take in the breathtaking views of the city. You can even see The Hague and Rotterdam from the church. Rotterdam and The Hague Delft is halfway between Rotterdam and The Hague. This makes shopping in either city (10

20

minutes away by train) dead easy, while a day at the beach at Scheveningen or Kijkduin is just a 45-minute tram ride away. Icons of Delft Delft, of course, is also well known for its worldfamous Delft Blue, its close ties with the House of Orange- Nassau, and the painter Johannes Vermeer. Every year, the city attracts around three million visitors from all over the world. Among the attractions they come for are Royal Delft, the last remaining Delft Blue earthenware factory, where you can see master painters at work every day. They also come to visit Museum Prinsenhof Delft, where the Father of the Fatherland, William of Orange, was murdered by Balthasar Gérard. The Vermeer Centre is another popular attraction. Here the story of the artist Johannes Vermeer is told, and you can admire a copy of the world-famous Girl with a Pearl Earring painting.

Write history We still continue to write history every day. Every year, Delft makes the front pages of the world news thanks to a brilliant idea or invention coming from you, its students. Examples that come to mind are the solar- powered NUNA vehicle or Boyan Slat, who made headlines with his invention for ridding the world oceans of plastic, and who has already raised millions in investment.


History of Delft History For the next few years, Delft will be your city. A city with a rich history which has been home to many important people. It is certainly worth the effort to learn more about it The roots Around the year 1000, it was discovered that peat bogs become dryer by digging a ditch. This digging process is referred to as ‘delving’. The name ‘Delft’ is taken from this English word. A ditch was delved, and a settlement was established at the point where Delft is now located. A hundred years later, the village had grown so big that a new ditch was needed; the New Delft. Delft became a major market centre, as evidenced by the size of the central market square. In 1246, Delft was granted city rights by the Count of Holland, William II. Middle Ages The Middle Ages were difficult times for Delft; in the fourteenth century, it was besieged, and in 1536, a severe fire reduced the whole city to ashes. The biggest disaster was the ‘Delftse Donderslag’, a massive gunpowder explosion. In 1654, the gunpowder cellar exploded at the location of the present-day Paardenmarkt. 200 houses lay in ruins and another 300 were severely damaged. William of Orange came to live in Delft in the sixteenth century. “I cannot approve of monarchs who want to rule over the conscience of the people, and take away their freedom of choice and religion” is one of his statements that has found its way into the vernacular. This was the cause of his conflict with Philip II and the start of the Eighty Years War. In 1580, William of Orange was declared an outlaw by Philip II and, in 1584, he was assassinated in the Delft Prinsenhof by Balthasar Gérard.

17th century During this century, Delft experienced a period of economic boom, partly because of the presence of the Dutch East India Company and the porcelain trade, Delft Blue. A war in China cut off the supply of Chinese porcelain, and Delft gained a monopoly in the porcelain market. This was also the time of one of the finest artists of the Golden Age, Johannes Vermeer. This great painter was born in 1632 in Delft, and lived there all his life. Relapse From the “disaster year” of 1672, when England, France, Cologne, and Munster invaded the Dutch Republic, the Delft economy went into decline. The city was increasingly overshadowed by The Hague (seat of government) and Rotterdam (port). City of knowledge By 1842, there was a strong need for people with engineering skills, leading to the foundation of the ‘Koninklijke Academie voor Burgerlijke Ingenieurs’ (the forerunner of TU Delft). And that is how Delft became a booming student city. The establishment of the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research in 1932 and other knowledge-intensive institutes and businesses transformed Delft from a cultural and Princes’ city into a knowledge city.

The Delft Student

Student living at home Eline Monster, 1st year student Industrial Design Engineering Why do you still live with your parents? I continued to live at home because I live fairly close to Delft. I therefore did not think it was necessary to go to rooms. Moving into a room also costs a lot of money, of course, and I didn’t want to get a loan in my first year. In addition, I also thought it would be nice to get to know the city and the people a bit first when I was looking for a room. I do plan to move into a student room in my second year.

would go into rooms! Summarize your student life in one sentence! You can retake an exam, but not a party!

Would you recommend a prospective student to continue living at home? That depends on the situation. If you live fairly close by and don’t mind sleeping on someone’s couch after a party, then I do recommend that you continue to live comfortably with your parents. Do you live far away from Delft, do you want to join an active association of your parental home, then I

Student living in Delft Roel Busschers, 1st year student Industrial design Engineering Why did you leave home? I left home because I lived in Brabant. This distance was too long for me. I was also ready for some freedom and independence, I was already 21. What kind of house do you live in? I have been living in a student house since last July with 8 other roommates. With a distance of 5 minutes to both the center and the TU, I have

nothing to complain about. It is an old small house (small for 9 people) and it certainly shows. This makes it a very cozy house for me. How do you choose a house? What I notice myself, but also among students around me who are looking for a house, is that the best way to choose a house is by looking at how you feel there. Both at the house itself and the people who live there. See if you can see yourself living there. Summarize your student life in one sentence The most educational but also the best time of your life.

Honours student Olaf Verbunt, 4th year student Mechanical Engineering Why did you choose to do Honours? Enrolling in the Honours Program was very easy if you completed your first year of your bachelor with distinction. At the time I had no plans of what I wanted to do with it. However, when my interests came to lie outside my bachelor’s degree, the Honours Program helped me to set up a super cool project. What exactly is the Honors Program? The Honours Program is an extra-curricular program within your bachelor’s degree. In this ‘program’ you take extra courses and/or do a project in your second and third year of your bachelor’s degree. It is an interfaculty programme, so the opportunities you get in the Honours program are enormous. If you have successfully completed the Honours Programme, you will have earned 20 extra credits.

How do you combine Honours with other activities? How you want it. You can make your own choices in your student life, and that also applies to the Honours Programme. Summarize your student life in one sentence! Amazing!

Sporty student

Jorrit Kiestra, 2nd year student Architecture, Urbanim and Building Sciences Why did you actively start doing sports? I started my studies last year, in the middle of the infamous Corona time. I wasn’t part of a (sports) association at the time, so I focused on little else than my studies for the entire year. Since this year I have started rowing, which means that you train intensively every day, eat and drink healthy and sleep well. Although the sport takes a lot of time that I would otherwise put into my studies, I have noticed that my results have only improved. So it has become clear to me how good sport

contributes to your mental health and therefore also your study results. Moreover, it is just great fun to form a close team and keep pushing your boundaries together. How did you find the OWee in your year? As with everything in my year, Corona also threw a spanner in the works at the OWee. This mainly consisted of an online program, which made it difficult to experience the real atmosphere of the OWee. Fortunately, I was still able to take a physical day and get a taste of the atmosphere in Delft. Summarize your student life in one sentence! The more energy you put into something, the more it becomes worth!

Member of a study association Lale Günhan, 2nd year student Technology, Policy and Managment Why did you choose to join your study association? When I started my study in 2020, I really enjoyed getting to know some fellow students, because it makes the study even more fun if, for example, you can sit in lectures together, do projects and take a break. There is no better way to make friends than at a study association!

How did you experience the OWee? The OWee is the perfect time to find out if you want to do something else besides your studies and get to know the whole of Delft. It’s a week of fun and celebration! Summarize your student life in one sentence You can always work later in life!

To what extent does being an active member of your study association influence your study? I do a committee that you spend a little time on every week, which can be perfectly combined with your studies. The faculty bar is also open every week, where you can have a beer. You can organize your time completely yourself, so you can decide for yourself how much time you spend in the study association!

Member of a student association Florien de Graaf, 1st year student Industrial Engineering Why did you choose to join your student association? Besides that it seemed like a great way to quickly get to know people in Delft, the activities and atmosphere of a student association also appealed to me. I am really very happy with my choice. I have also found a very nice house through the association, I play sports at the hockey sub-association and I have very nice people around me. In a short time I felt completely at home in Delft. How do you choose the right student association? I would talk to people a lot. Besides learning so much about the association, you also know whether you like the people. Try to see what suits you and go by your gut feeling. Then you will have a good time anyway!

Student housing You come to study in Delft, but you are not the only one looking for a room. In this chapter you will find useful tips for finding a home! Make sure to arrange your accommodation before arriving in the Netherlands, as you are officially required to register a valid Dutch address within 5 days after arrival in the Netherlands. Registering a valid Dutch address at the local municipality is a legal obligation for all who intend to stay in the Netherlands for 4 months or more, irrespective of nationality or purpose of stay. A valid and registered address allows you to obtain a BSN (Citizen Service Number), which is needed to interact with Dutch authorities. TU Delft suggests three ways to arrange accommodation. See below for information on each of these options. Finding accommoddation thorugh rental agencies or private landlords Prioritize finding accommodation once you know that you will attend TU Delft. Finding a room in Delft can be difficult and time-consuming. As most university cities in the Netherlands, Delft has a shortage of affordable student accommodations. The following information may prove to be useful when looking for accommodation: • Delft is a relatively small city, therefore neighbouring

municipalities can provide good alternatives within reasonable travel distance from TU Delft’s campus. • Groups on Facebook could aid the search for accommodation; e.g. “Find a room(mate) in Delft” & “Find an international roommate in Delft”. Keep the following in mind when looking for accommodation: • There are fewer (affordable) accommodations available, in the months leading up to the start of a new academic year • Most accommodations on offer are unfurnished and rent often does not include utilities and municipal taxes. • Make sure the owner provides you with a declaration of permission to register the address with the municipality. • Read the rental agreement carefully. • Be aware of rental frauds. After finding accommodation register your Dutch address as soon as possible in Studielink. Lodging with family, friends, and other acquaintances Moving in with someone? Make sure to have permission from the primary resident as well as the owner of the residence to register the address with the municipality, for which you can use this authorisation form. Fill in the authorisation form and have it signed by the primary resident and the owner of the residence. Bring the form with the necessary documents, as mentioned in the form, to your registration with the municipality. Additionally, register your Dutch address as soon as possible in Studielink.

37


The Delft Student Student housing Finding accommodation using TU Delft’s housing service TU Delft has partnered with various housing agencies in the greater-Delft region to offer accommodation to students coming from abroad. Accommodations will become available prior to the start of each semester and can only be reserved through TU Delft’s housing portal. TU Delft determines the order in which students gain access to the housing portal based on the order in which full payments are received. Note that TU Delft cannot guarantee to accommodate everyone who applies for this service nor that the available accommodations will meet your preferences; it remains your responsibility to find suitable accommodation in time before the start of your studies when TU Delft’s accommodation supply runs out. Indicate in Osiris when submitting your Confirmation Statement if you would like to apply for this service. Procedural information will follow after TU Delft has processed the receipt of your full payment as specified in your Financial Letter. After finding accommodation register your Dutch address as soon as possible in Studielink. Conditions • Considering the difficult housing market, TU Delft advises you to consider re-applying for next year if you cannot secure an accommodation before the start of your study programme. • For Non-EU/EFTA nationals being registered is a requirement for maintaining their Residence Permit for Study.

Rent and student loan system Student loan system In order to pay for your degree programme and life as a student, you can take out a loan with DUO. It has a very low interest rate and you have 30 years in which to repay your loan. If you apply for a loan, the money will be paid into your account on the 24th of every month. Take a look at www.duo.nl/ particulier for more information! Healthcare allowance Because students generally receive a low income, you are often entitled to benefits or allowances. If you are aged 18 or older, of Dutch nationality and are a low earner, you can apply for the healthcare allowance to contribute to the costs of your healthcare insurance. For further information and to apply, see www.belastingdienst.nl/toeslagen. Rent allowance If you are renting a room or flat of your own, you may be entitled to rent allowance. To qualify, you must have Dutch nationality, be aged 18 or older and be renting self-contained accommodation. You also need to be registered at your residential address and your rent, income and assets must not exceed a certain amount. For further information and to apply, see www.belastingdienst.nl/toeslagen. Study delay There is a possibility that you may fall behind with your studies because of exceptional circumstances. TU Delft, Inholland University of Applied Sciences Delft and The Hague University of Applied Science have financial arrangements to support you in situations of this kind. As a student, the reasons

activities such as an administrative year in an association or work on a committee. Supplementary grant The supplementary grant is aimed at students whose parents have a low income. From 1 January 2021, this is set at a maximum of €413.78 a month. The grant will become a gift if you obtain your degree within ten years. Even if you do not complete your degree within ten years, the first five months of this supplementary grant will also become a gift and will not need to be repaid. For further information, see https://duo.nl/ particulier/ aanvullende-beurs-of-toelage. Student travel pass Your student travel pass allows you to travel on public transport free of charge or at a discount. To qualify, you first need to order a personal OV (public transport) card. You can purchase one at www.ov-chipkaart.nl. Once you have received it, you can link it up to your student travel pass at www. studentenreisproduct.nl. For your student travel pass, you need to choose between a weekday or weekend subscription. The money you would normally spend travelling on public transport is borrowed from DUO. The loan will be written off if you complete your degree within ten years. In that case, you will actually be travelling free of charge.

why you fall behind may be foreseen or unforeseen. There are arrangements in place to cover both scenarios. Unforeseen circumstances involve situations like illness or family circumstances. Foreseen circumstances tend to be administrative

Education TU Delft The world of TU Delft Choosing to go to TU Delft is about so much more than your choice of study. TU Delft offers highquality teaching and an inspiring, fascinating, and attractive study environment that allows you, as a student, to develop into a critical, results oriented, and socially responsible engineer. You will find yourself in an international setting in which everyone is welcome, regardless of sexual orientation, functional impairment, or cultural, political, or religious background. There are more than 125 nationalities at the university, and almost a quarter of all students are from outside the Netherlands.

During your first weeks at TU Delft, you will no doubt have all kinds of questions about your degree programme and everything related to it. From information about enrolment and termination of enrolment, tuition fees, and financial assistance (Profiling Fund) to lecture times and where to find your timetable. To help get you off to a good start, we have posted a range of useful information for you on the ‘ welcome.tudelft’.nl website. Here, you will find information about the academic calendar and a map of the campus showing where teaching buildings and catering facilities are located, as well as information about the laptop project, study support and all the other amenities available at TU Delft.

42

Faculties and degree programmes TU Delft has eight faculties. These are departments at the university that focus on particular subjects and offer Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in these subjects. Wellbeing during your studies The TU Delft provides support to students through several ways. You can use the E-Health tool ‘Gezondeboel’ and workshops on the field of personal development at the Career & Counseling Services. At the Wellbeing & Study page (https:// www.tudelft.nl/en/student/well-being-and-study) you can read more about it. Each study programme has one or more academic counsellors. You can contact an academic counsellor if you have any questions about or related to your degree programme. If it looks as though you are falling behind, it is particularly important to contact an academic counsellor as soon as possible. TU Delft also offers specific types of support to students with a functional impairment, such as dyslexia, but also to ambitious top-level athletes. For short-term help with psychological problems that are directly related to your studies, you can contact the TU Delft student psychologists. Study culture and teaching methods The study culture at TU Delft is ambitious and enterprising. Our students follow a relatively challenging and intensive study programme, by Dutch standards. You need a positive and active attitude to studying and you have to be able to plan and organise your time properly. Studying at TU Delft means a great deal of independence. Are you looking for a good place to study? Then the TU Delft library is the perfect spot. There are more


TU Delft locations with study spots, you can find them at ‘tudelft.nl/studyplaces’. As well as being good at leadership, analytical, and critical, TU Delft students enjoy a reputation for showing initiative and setting up projects. That enterprising character is part and parcel of the make-up of TU Delft students and engineers. As a TU Delft student, you ask yourself not only how something works, but how it could be improved upon; you see a problem in society and find a solution to it. You will spend much of your time working alone when studying, but you will also learn how to work well in groups. You will carry out many projects as part of a group and experience several different teaching formats during your studies. We strive to provide as much face-to-face classes as possible. However it is that some teaching will take place online. Depending on your studies some classes will take place in a laboratory. Of course everything will be set up regarding the current Covid-guidelines. Structure of Bachelor’s degree programme The academical year has an official opening ceremony, this year the event takes place on September 6th. Roughly the year is divided in 4 quarters. You have exams multiple times throughout the year and you are obliged to sign up for the exams yourself. Prior to your exams you occasionally have a ‘witte week’; a lecture free week. This week students are provided time to revisit material from the past quarter.

A Bachelor’s degree programme lasts three years, as is the case at all other universities. Most of the engineering programmes have lots of theoretical classes that demands lots of knowledge and selfstudy and mathematics like linear algebra, calculus and analytics. Apart from that you will participate in experimental learning which often takes place in groups. This way you will use your theoretical knowledge in a practical situation. At the end of your first year, you will be given a binding recommendation on whether or not to continue with your studies. If you have obtained less than 45 of your 60 credits, you may not continue with the same programme the following year. During your second year you will deepen your knowledge and then choose a minor in your third year. During this half year you can focus on a specific topic within your Bachelor’s programme or broaden your horizon. You can choose a minor at another TU Delft faculty or other universities in the Netherlands or even abroad. In other words, you have a lot of freedom in terms of what you do in these six months. We encourage international mobility by offering options for doing part of your programme at another university, in or outside the Netherlands. TU Delft has partnerships with various other universities and international companies, which

43


Education TU Delft makes it easy for you to go on an (online) exchange programme.In your third year you will work on your Bachelor’s thesis project (BEP). After completing this project you will receive your Bachelor’s degree and you can call yourself a bachelor of science. You will then have the choice of continuing to study or starting work. Following on from your Bachelor’s programme, you can take a Master’s programme. At universities of technology, they take two years.

Honours Programme Bachelor’s students who are capable of handling more than the regular degree programme and who perform at an above average level can take part in the TU Delft Honours Programme, a challenging supplementary programme in which you carry out

research or do projects independently. You can design much of the programme yourself. Together with Honours students from other Bachelor’s programmes, you may find yourself working on research for a professor, for example, or writing a business plan, carrying out an assignment for a company, or organising scientific lectures for fellow students. Activities besides your studies TU Delft offers various student projects – separate from the degree programmes – that give you the opportunity to further develop your talents. These student projects are also referred to as ‘dream teams’. Examples include the Delft Hyperloop and

44

the TU Delft Solar Boat Team. This is a great way to learn, and the experience gained is invaluable for your future career. Do you have ideas to start your own company of do you want to learn more about entrepreneurship? The Delft Centre for Entrepreneurship develops your entrepreneurial skills met classes, competitions and the start-up night. Personal development During your studies, we will encourage you to develop personally as well as academically. By doing voluntary work, for example, or by being an active member of one or more of the many study or student associations that we have in Delft. You can find more information about these further on in the BINAS.

need help yourself. You can contact the confidential advisers via the information on the website (tudelft. nl/trustperson).

Study advisors Each study program has one or more study advisors. You can contact the study advisor with questions about the study and everything that is related to your study. It is certainly a good idea to contact them if you notice that there is a change of failin your studies.

Psychologists What can you expect from the student psychologists? In addition to courses, the psychologists at TU Delft also offer short-term, individual supervision. In principle, short-term means that the supervision consists of a maximum of 3 conversations. During the intake, we look at what the student encounters, how this came about and what someone wants to work on. Then, together with the student, a plan is drawn up for the follow-up interviews. Sometimes it becomes apparent during the intake that the student needs long-term supervision or a different specialization than we can offer with the student psychologists. Then we refer the student to the general practitioner for a referral to a psychologist outside the TU.

You can contact the study advisors for: • Information about the study programme and regulations for the relevant study programme • Help with study planning, for example in case of study delay • Choice of study program (package of subjects) • Exemption from exams and parts thereof • Help with applying for financial support under or student graduation support scheme or other financial schemes from/via TU Delft • Registration of study delay, and assistance with interruption of registration in the event of illness or special family circumstances • Advice to study strikers, also to those who want to continue their studies outside TU Delft • Advice when making a change, i.e. when changing study programs within TU Delft • If necessary, they refer the student, for example, to the student psychologist or the student counselor.

De Haagse Hogeschool Delft Let’s change. You. Us. The World Dat is de uitnodiging van De Haagse Hogeschool aan iedereen. Wij willen de wereld waarin wij leven veranderen en verbeteren. Maar dat lukt alleen als we samenwerken, zelf groeien en op deze manier mee veranderen met de tijd. We hebben nieuwe antwoorden nodig in de wereld. Deze nieuwe antwoorden vinden we sneller als we elkaars inzichten, vaardigheden en technieken continu delen en leren toepassen. Wereldburgers De Haagse Hogeschool tekent er daarom voor dat studenten, docenten en partners zich samen ontwikkelen tot wereldburgers. Dit zijn grenzeloos denkende mensen die stevig in hun schoenen staan en hierdoor uit eigen overtuiging de wereld tegemoet gaan. Het zijn mensen die zich realiseren dat hun eigen vakkundige inzet het verschil kan maken. Mensen die samen creatieve oplossingen ontwikkelen en deze ook toepassen. Wij creëren een veilig en betrokken klimaat waarin die wereldburgers zich kunnen ontplooien en vernieuwen.

De Haagse Hogeschool in Delft Onze technische faculteit is gevestigd in zowel Den Haag als Delft. In Delft vind je de opleidingen Toegepaste Wiskunde, Elektrotechniek (voltijd en

duaal), Mechatronica, Technische Bedrijfskunde, Technische Natuurkunde en Werktuigbouwkunde (voltijd en duaal). Ook de opleiding HBO-ICT wordt aangeboden in Delft. Via onze opleidingen worden jonge mensen opgeleid binnen het domein van technologie, innovatie en samenleving. In techniekstad Delft hebben we onze Betafactory en organisaties als 3M, koninklijke BAM Groep, Royal HaskoningDHV, TNO en de TU Delft binnen handbereik. Frontoffice Facilitaire zaken & IT Bij de balie van locatie Delft kun je onder meer terecht voor het aanvragen van evenementen, het reserveren van algemene ruimten en faciliteiten, het aanvragen van hulp van conciërges, het doorgeven van klachten en het aanvragen van parkeerkaarten (tegen vergoeding). Telefoon: 015 2606202; e-mail: frontoffice-delft@hhs.nl. Restaurant In het restaurant op locatie Delft vind je een variatie aan heerlijke soepen, diverse warme snacks en belegde broodjes. Bibliotheek De Haagse Hogeschool heeft een centrale bibliotheek in de hoofdvestigingen en een kleine mediatheek op de vestiging in Delft. Alle studenten kunnen gratis gebruikmaken van deze voorzieningen. Het is ook mogelijk om (thuis) gebruik te maken van de digitale bibliotheek, bestaande uit databanken, digitale tijdschriften, digitale normen en e-books. Verder kun je een gratis lenerspas aanvragen bij de bibliotheek van de TU Delft. Daarmee kun je allerlei technisch-wetenschappelijke informatie inzien en lenen.

Education De Haagse Hogeschool Delft Sports and culture As a student of The Hague University of Applied Sciences Delft, you can use the facilities available in both Delft and The Hague. Think of sports, culture and music. As a student you can also participate in the activities of X, the sports and culture center of TU Delft. Are you a top athlete? Or are you active at an (inter)national level in another way, for example as a dancer or musician? Then you can request special study facilities via the student counsellor. Dean Niels Emonts (n.a.emonts@hhs.nl) is the point of contact for top athletes. Study career guidance During your study you will receive support from a study career counselor (slb’er). You see the SLB from the start of the training until graduation. You can discuss your study progress, your internships, the progress of your portfolio and your personal development with him or her.

Student counselor Do you have dyslexia? A form of autism? Do you have a hearing, vision or movement limitation? Do you have a chronic or psychological illness? And do you want advice on how to combine this with your studies? Visit the student counselor. There are many facilities and adjustments that make it easier

52

for you to study. Think of extra time when taking exams, extra supervision, but also a specially equipped rest room. You can also contact the student counselor if special situations arise during your studies that affect your studies and your study results. The conversations are strictly confidential. Karin de Hilster and Marjolein Pronk are the student counselors in Delft. They can be found in room 1.091 and can be reached via 015-260 63 85 or tisd-decanaat@hhs.nl. What to do in undesirable situations The Hague University of Applied Sciences strives for a safe and pleasant study and work climate for all students and employees. If undesirable behavior does occur – and that is all behavior in which you do not feel safe – you can always report this to one of the confidential advisers. You may feel that you have not been treated well by the university of applied sciences. In such cases you can send an objection, appeal or complaint to the Legal Protection Desk. You can contact the ombudsman with complaints about inappropriate behavior or inappropriate situations within the university of applied sciences. Abroad Information is available at TIS International about everything that has to do with internationalization.


De Haagse Hogeschool Delft For example, if you want to do an internship or study abroad. Do you have a question about this? Send an email to tis-international@hhs.nl. You can then contact the International Office of The Hague University of Applied Sciences for information about grant applications, housing, etc. The International Office can be reached via the e-mail address: internationaloffice@hhs.nl. Switch to another course You may find out after a while that you didn’t quite choose the right education. Instead of stopping completely, you can also switch to another study programme. Our transfer coordinators are happy to help you with that choice. Below you will find the contact details of the transfer coordinators per study programme: •Electrical engineering: Michael Dirksen (C.F.M.Dirksen@hhs.nl) •Technical Business Administration: Hugo Duivenvoorden (H.C.R.Duivenvoorden@hhs.nl) •Applied Physics: Nico van der Houwen (N.L.vanderHouwen@hhs.nl) •Applied Mathematics: Sanjay Ramawadh (S.D.Ramawadh@hhs.nl) or Shiraz Abdoel (S.M.F.Abdoel@hhs.nl) •Mechanical Engineering: Tori Robeerts (T.R.Robeerts@hhs.nl) •Mechatronics: Dick van Teylingen (mechatronica@ hhs.nl) • HBO ICT: Adri Pronk (A.G.P.Pronk@hhs.nl)

beta factory Through the Betafactory, students work on multidisciplinary projects with and for the business community and research. The projects can lead to, for example, a working device, demonstration model or a prototype. Sometimes projects are actually put into production. Examples are the electric racing car of the team The Formula Cruisers, or robots for horticulture. Walk in if you’re in the area and discover all the technical possibilities.

Are you a student at TU Delft and are you thinking about transferring to The Hague University of Applied Sciences? In that case, too, you can contact the above-mentioned persons and inquire about the possibilities.

Education Hogeschool InHolland Delft Hogeschool Inholland Delft is a small university of applied sciences with courses in the green and technical domain. The unique education portfolio of Inholland Delft is a real asset to the student city of Delft and consists of the following courses: - Aeronautical Engineering (English language education); - Associate degree Horticultural Management (2-year program); - Animal in the Sustainable Society; - Flexible part-time Horticulture & agribusiness; - Food Commerce and Technology; - Landscape and Environment Management; - Aviation technology; - Precision Engineering; - Horticulture & Agribusiness.

Guidance and Support On the Introduction Day - the first official day of lectures - you will meet your study career counselor (slb-er) and the teaching team of your study programme. The SLB is the person who supervises you throughout your studies and with whom you conduct study progress interviews. To learn by practise! During your studies you will work on company assignments or research from practice. Sometimes alone, but usually together with other students in a project team. Company assignments are carried out under the supervision

54

of a teacher supervisor and the client. So pay close attention to who you should contact if you run into problems: - Can the problem be traced back to a company assignment? Then contact the teacher supervisor. - Are you having trouble with your study planning or is your study progress stagnating? In that case, you should first discuss this with your study career counselor. He usually refers you to the student counselor. You go to the student counselor: - in personal circumstances that affect are on your studies. - if you need additional support, that further goes beyond what the student buddies offer. - if you want to combine top sport and study. - if you do not yet have a good command of Dutch. - for additional support due to a feature limitation. The sooner you contact the student counselor, the better. Do not wait and make an appointment quickly via decanaat.delft@inholland.nl. Student Success Center Inholland Delft University of Applied Sciences has a Student Success Center (SSC) where you can go for extra student support. The SSC was specially


set up to help students, especially first-years, to get started. Studying at HBO is different from secondary school. You have to work independently! Make your own study plan, prepare your lessons and work on company assignments or research together with other students, as a team. This will ask a lot of you, especially at the start of your education. To help you on your way, Inholland Delft works with student buddies. These are peer coaches who will guide you through the university college, the ICT programs and where or who you should contact with your specific question. So do not hesitate and contact the student buddy if you want to tell your story, if you need a listening ear or if you have trouble making your study plan. The student buddies can often be found in the cozy living room or in the SSC office (K-0.82) on the ground floor of the university of applied sciences. Amenities and facilities Before the start of your education at Inholland, you will be informed via the MyStart app about the status of your registration, the introduction programme, the book list and other things you should take into account. Have you met all the registration requirements? Then you will have access to the (digital) student facilities of your study program and Hogeschool Inholland, such as the: - My Inholland App: to view your timetable, presence/absence of teachers and to reserve a room.

for practical lessons and research projects. - Cafeteria: it is open from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. You can buy sandwiches, salads and hot snacks here. - Parking spot reservation (NB the number of parking spaces for students is limited). Study associations You are in full development during your studies. In addition to your education, you also want to have a pleasant social life, meet other people and make friends. Join one of our study associations! You benefit a lot from it. Such as a discount on study books, going on company excursions or study trips. The study associations of Inholland Delft are: - S.V.

our association because we stand for equality among the members. It is this equality that is the fundamental characteristic of the association, it is also central to all activities that are organized. There is no registration system, so the exact number of ‘knorren’ is unknown. D.S.V. de Knor does have a large number of houses. Does this sound like something to you and do you want to join our association? Then look up what it means to be a ‘knor’ in the Delftsche Dictionary and join us! Knor Hoogh!

Sports & Culture Force Elektro Ultimate Frisbee Ultimate Frisbee is a high-paced, non-contact sport, which requires a lot of agility and tactics.

Another part that separates ultimate frisbee from other sports is the “Spirit Of The Game”; there are no referees, so all the players have to make and resolve the calls themselves. This always results in good vibes on the field. Force Elektro is the Ultimate Frisbee club of Delft. Since 1993, we’ve grown into the third largest Ultimate club in the Netherlands, with 130+ members who play at all levels.

Editorial Frequently Asked Questions Information about the OWee What is the OWee and when does it take place? OWee stands for ‘OntvangstWeek’, which translates as ‘Opening Week’. During this week, you will get to know a great deal about the student city of Delft. You will find out about the various student associations, go on a tour of the city, visit special places on the campus, and we are also laying on some unforgettable parties. The perfect start to a new phase – your life as a student! The OWee starts this year on 21 August and lasts until 25 August Is the OWee really that important? Yes, it is important that you feel at home in the city where you will be studying. And because there is so much to see of what Delft has to offer in one week, everyone is sure to find something that suits them. What is a first-year students’ weekend and when does mine take place? First-year students’ weekends usually take place in the weekend before the OWee and are organised by the study associations. You can find the dates of the first-year students’ weekends on the ‘Dates of first-years students’ weekends’ page, elsewhere in this BINAS. During the weekend, you will primarily get to know your fellow students. You usually form an OWee group with friends you make at the first-year students’ weekend. If you can’t go to your first-year students’ weekend but are going to the OWee, we will make sure you are put into an OWee group with people who will be taking the same programme as you. What is the difference between the first-year students’ weekend and the OWee? The first-years students’ weekend is intended for

120

new students on your programme, is organised by the study association and usually does not take place in Delft. The OWee starts after this weekend. During the OWee, you get to know students on other programmes, the city, campus, and associations during all kinds of great activities!

Having doubts about signing up for the OWee Suppose you are not too bothered with all this student stuff – do you still need to go to the OWee? Yes, we really recommend that you do! The OWee is not just about partying and all the student associations, but also about getting to know Delft. For example, we organise a tour of the campus, a challenge through the city, an information market, and a sports and culture day. You will get to know so many people during the course of the week. Whether or not you join a student association, it is always great to start off your time as a student with friends around you! I don’t know anyone who is going to study in Delft. Is coming to the OWee really that much fun, in that case? The OWee is precisely intended for people in your position! This week, you will take part in the programme in your own OWee group. The groups consist of ten prospective first-year students who are in exactly the same position. They are all new in Delft. So if you want to get to know people, this


week is the perfect way to embark on this new phase of your life! There is bound to be someone who you get along with! Part of my degree programme is given in another city. Do I really need to come to the OWee? Some programmes at TU Delft are given in combination with other universities. Molecular Science & Technology and Life Science & Technology are given partly in Leiden, while Nanobiology students sometimes have to go to Rotterdam. If you are about to start on the Clinical Technology programme, then part of it is in both cities! You won’t be able to combine the introduction weeks at Delft and Rotterdam as they take place at the same time. However, you could combine the introduction weeks at Delft and Leiden. So if you will be studying in Rotterdam part of the time, or if you don’t want to do both the El Cid in Leiden and the OWee, the best thing would be to go the introduction week of the city that appeals to you most or the city where you will be living.

sciences in Delft. More and more HBO students are coming to the OWee. Can I take part in the OWee if I have an impairment or if I am injured? Yes! Most activities are not intensive so you can take part in them like anyone else. If you are unsure about taking part in the OWee, please get in touch, in plenty of time, either at info@ owee.nl or on +31 (0) 15 278 6709. We can then factor in any needs you may have.. During the OWee What is an OWee group and how are they formed? OWee groups have ten prospective students and two mentors. You participate in your own OWee programme as part of this group. The mentors have already been studying in Delft for a year or more, so they know what’s what in the city. The night programme is yours to decide on, and you can go together with your group or on your own.

Can you participate in the OWee if you are under 18? Yes, you can certainly participate in the OWee if you are under 18. You will be given a special 18wristband. Please note that normal Dutch laws and regulations apply during the whole week. More information about the OWee alcohol policy can be found on page 13, under ‘Alcohol policy’. I will be studying at a University of Applied Sciences in Delft – can I come to the OWee? Yes, certainly! The OWee is for every prospective student at TU Delft and all universities of applied

Is the OWee some kind of initiation? No, the OWee is not an initiation. The OWee is for every student in Delft and every part is accessible to everyone on a voluntary basis. You are not obliged to do anything.

121


Editorial Frequently Asked Questions Practical information What are the costs of the OWee? Participation in the OWee costs €90. For this money you get the entire OWee breakfast, lunch and dinner, access to all activities, access to all student, sports and cultural associations, a bag, gadgets and much more! I am a vegetarian or have special dietary needs. Is it possible to take this into account? Special meals will be available during the OWee for people with particular allergies, including gluten allergies, lactose intolerances, and nut allergies. Vegetarian meals will also be served. If you have any other type of allergy, please let us know in advance so we can see how we can accommodate your needs. Student associations When can you sign up to a student association? The OWee is intended to let you get to know all the student associations and to sign up to the one that appeals to you. Some student associations have limits on their membership numbers, so if you want to sign up for one, don’t wait too long. In many cases, you can only sign up to a student association during the OWee, either in the daytime or in the evenings. If you would like to become a member but cannot come to the OWee, you should contact the student association in question. What is the introduction period? This is a period in which new members of a student association get to know each other and the association itself. How the period is filled in, and how long it lasts, differs from one association to the next, but it usually starts immediately after the OWee – that is, Friday 26 August. If you are planning to join a student association, it is a good

122

idea to keep the week after the OWee free. Between the OWee and the introduction period it is possible to go home and swap your OWee things for those that you need for the introduction period. I have another question! If you still have questions about the OWee after reading this BINAS, send an email to info@owee. nl, or call +31 (0) 15 278 6709! More information When will I get more information about the OWee 2022? You will receive confirmation after you have signed up. You will then get a letter in August with more information about the week. You can also download the OWee app in advance, which shows the programme and much more. This gives you more time in which to look forward to all the fun activities that await you! You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram or go to www.owee.nl if you want to start preparing for this new phase of your life!

This BINAS was designed and assembled by the design team of the OWee Board


Editorial Colophon That was it! After reading many pages you have arrived at the end of this BINAS. You are now familiar with all the ins and outs of the beautiful city of Delft, the possibilities within your educational institution and the madness of student life! Everything you need to start your life in Delft as completely as possible. At the time of writing, we are busy from our workspace to dot the ‘i’. The 49th BINAS is almost finished! Writing this beautiful book has not been without its setbacks. This year we teamed up with a new printer, so we didn’t really know what the relationship will be like. If you have this BINAS in your hands now, that means it went well! In addition, as the OWee board, we are fully committed to (student) wellbeing this year. Have you seen the ads? We hope so! We hope that this year all prospective students will make a valuable start to their time in Delft, so that the transition to student life goes well for everyone. After hours of toil, we, the editors of the 49th OWee board, are extremely proud of the result! The BINAS could only be realized with the help of a number of external parties. To begin with, we would like to thank the people of the acquisition team from the board. Thanks to Marijn van Tienhoven, Auke Sonneveld, Elisabetta Foglia and Pepijn de Haan, but of course also our sponsors, it has become financially possible to print this BINAS. We would like to thank our advisors, Barbara de Vries and Mennolt Verhaar, for their wise advice, experience and reflection on all parts of this BINAS. We would also like to put Alexander Lokhorst and Sanne Gijsberts in the spotlight because they, as supervisors, always assist us with their knowledge and tips.

128

We would like to thank all study, student, sports, culture and international associations for helping us to make the BINAS as complete as possible with their original pieces, photos, stories and impressions. You have highlighted all the beautiful facets of student life in Delft. We would also like to thank all other (student) organizations and people involved for their contribution to the BINAS. The editorial staff of this BINAS consists of Annabel Fransen, Eveline Gielisse, Aileen van der Steen and Niels Oppelaar.
