Preface

Dear prospective student of Delft, You are probably wondering what kind of book you are reading right now. You may not realise it, but this is an important and even emotional moment. That is because this BINAS marks the start of a new phase in your life – your life as a student. No more lunch boxes with sandwiches made by your mother. No more detention for being late. And certainly no more trying to force German or French vocab into your memory that simply will not stay there. You are now a new Delft student! And there is so much more that awaits you than just your new degree programme. You are on the threshold of a new life. You are leaving school behind and starting with a clean slate. You are free to fill it in as you wish, with your own needs and ambitions. You will be making new friends, living in another city, and may find yourself joining a student association. This students’ bible has all the information you will need for this phase of your life, varying from the best bars to study associations, from Delft history to international organisations, from an inspiring vision by the Rector Magnificus to a rambling foreword by the chair of the OWee Board. Everything you need to make the start of this new phase of your life a success is in this book.

Editorial

It doesn’t matter what your interests are or what you think and do. In relation to other cities, Delft has the most active and most varied student life that you could imagine. With its 60 student associations, there is bound to be a place for everyone. From faith-based to sports, from alternative to party animal. If there is one thing you can be sure of, it is that your time as a student will be an accumulation of new adventures, learning opportunities, and of course, new friends. Can’t wait to embark on your life as a student? Then sign up for the OWee, from 18 to 22 August. Together, we will bring in this new phase in style!

Enjoy reading and see you in the OWee!

Niels van Kouwen

Chairman OWee Board 2019

The start of this new phase is the OWee. This Opening Week marks a cracking start to an important part of your life. There is more to studying than just learning. It is about your own development on as many fronts as you want. The phase you are currently in will not be your last. You will constantly be entering new phases throughout your time as a student – each with its own challenges and learning opportunities.

Welkom bij het Servicepunt EĂŠn plek voor al je vragen

Hoi! Ik ben Anouk en ik werk bij het Servicepunt op de faculteit TNW Zuid (gebouw 58). Op iedere faculteit en in de Library heb je een Servicepunt. Hier kun je terecht met al je vragen. Wij kunnen je bijvoorbeeld helpen met het instellen van je wifi, een afspraak maken met een studieadviseur, opvragen van je cijferlijst of we wijzen je de weg. Maar je mag natuurlijk ook altijd langskomen voor een gezellig praatje. Wist je dat ook meerdere Servicepunten in de avond open zijn? Je kunt zelfs dan nog terecht met al je vragen. Overigens ben ik ‘s avonds niet te vinden bij het Servicepunt. Dan word je geholpen door een medestudent die dit als bijbaan doet.

Mayor of Delft Dear freshmen, Welcome to our beautiful city! You are at the start of a new phase in your lives. A great phase. Being a student, with the world at your feet. A city packed with things to discover... and for you, it is only just beginning! It is not for nothing that the theme of OWee 2019, the Opening Week for new students, is ‘Delft, new phase’. Your time at secondary school is now behind you, and some of you will have swapped your hometown for a room in Delft. This is the phase of your lives when you will be acquiring so much knowledge, making friends for life, using your talents, and finally be able to go to bed very late, without the prospect of nagging parents at the breakfast table.

Fortunately, many students feel at home here very quickly. And they feel involved, too. There are even many students on the city council, which perhaps makes Delft the youngest local authority in the Netherlands. I really hope that you become involved with the city of Delft and that you commit yourselves to our wonderful city, as a volunteer for example – there are so many places here where you are more than welcome! Whatever you do, enjoy it to the full! A new phase is only new once, as I know myself from experience. Hopefully, BINAS will help you have a FAUTASID (Fabulous And Unforgettable Time as a Student In Delft).

But any new phase in your lives is bound to raise a lot of questions. You might even be experiencing some tension. Well, it is good to Marja van Bijsterveldt know that there are some things you can look Mayor of Delft up, rather than discover through trial and error. And that is why we have BINAS (Belangrijke Informatie Naar Aankomende Studenten), a Dutch acronym that translates as ‘Important Information for Prospective Students’. Look at BINAS as a means of making life a bit easier. What is in BINAS? There is too much to mention. What student associations are there in Delft? And what about study associations? Where can I do sports? Or do voluntary work? What is the situation regarding renting rooms? You will find it all in BINAS. I hope you will get to know the city better, thanks in part to BINAS. And Delft would like to get to know you better, as well. So feel free to take part in activities in the city.

Rector Magnificus TU Delft

Dear new student of Delft, Welcome to Delft and welcome to our campus. I am very pleased to again be able to greet a fresh intake of students at Delft. The start of your time as a student is an important moment in your life – the start of a new phase. And it is an important one, too - during your time as a student, you will be laying the foundations of your professional career and building up your social networks that will probably stay with you for the rest of your lives. All this will be taking place as you move into adulthood. Because although you may be adults in the eyes of the law, and your physical development is probably more or less complete, you are mentally still at the building stage, if we can put it that way. That is because the prefrontal cortex – the part of the brain responsible for such matters as taking decisions, learning and interpreting – continues to develop until we have reached the age of about 25.

it is partly a matter of common sense. For example, try to keep up with your courses from the very first week – that way, you will not have to be up till two in the morning studying as the exam periods draw nearer. Most importantly though – if there is a problem, or if there threatens to be a problem, tell someone as soon as possible. Contact your student mentor, your academic counsellor, or one of the student psychologists if you feel you are struggling to cope. Together, we can surely sort it out. The saying ‘well begun is half done’ applies just as much to your time as a student, and there is no better way to start than the OWee. Make the most of your time here to get to know Delft, your university, the campus, and your fellow students. And let the OWee be the start of a memorable time as a student!

Tim van der Hagen

We at TU Delft are proud to be helping shape Rector Magnificus TU Delft this important phase in young people’s lives. At the same time, we are aware that this is a great responsibility. So much is going to be asked of you – studying on schedule, adding extracurricular activities to your CVs, and often a part-time job to limit your student loan debts. So it all means a lot of hard work. As a university, we have to offer not just outstanding teaching, but also ensure that our degree programmes are ‘doable’ and that we offer a helping hand to students encountering problems along the way. There are all kinds of ways in which we do this, but we need your help too. That is because

OWee (Opening Week) 2019 18-22 August The whole of the city of Delft goes wild during Opening Week, as it experiences an invasion of new students. You won’t have to do it on your own - you will be exploring Delft and its student life with fellow students and two mentors. The mentors will be two senior students from your degree course programme. Together, you will get to know Delft, take part in the programme of events, and enjoy an amazing week. Eating and sleeping All meals will be provided by us during Opening Week. You will have breakfast and lunch at different locations in the city with your group, and evening meals will be served at a student association. Do you have to travel far, and have you not yet found a place to sleep during Opening Week? Then we will provide accommodation for you! It means you will get to know other students, and everything will be close by!

Programme Each day a different aspect of student life will be highlighted. The day programme will be organised by the Opening Week management. In the evenings, you can eat courtesy of the student associations, before things really get going later on! Each association is organising different activities, so there is sure to be something for everyone. Below is an impression of the day programme.

First-years students’ weekends First-year students’ weekends take place before Opening Week. Almost every study association organises a weekend away with your new fellow students. This a great chance to get to know your fellow students, so you won’t be on your own once your degree programme gets underway. Check out your study association’s website for more information. You can sign up for the first-year students’ weekends on the website www.owee.nl.

Sunday 18 of August - Opening Opening Week starts on Sunday afternoon with a reception. Here, you can meet your fellow students for the first time and recover from the first-year students weekend. You will also receive your Opening Week wristband - your ‘access ticket’ for the whole week. This will be followed by a barbecue, while the student clubs will showcase all that Delft has to offer. The evening ends with a big party. This is not just for prospective students, but for every student at Delft.

OWee Board 2019 Dear prospective student, To ensure that you feel at home in Delft as quickly as possible, the OWee board organizes a reception week in which all future students of Delft can participate. Without all student associations, clubs and organizations in Delft, the student culture of this city would not be complete. The OWee is the way to get to know fellow students, current students and Delft. Whoever you are, whatever study you are going to do and whatever choices you make: the OWee is the best start to this new phase in your life! We, as organizers, do everything to ensure that you have an unforgettable week! The OWee board has been working full-time since February on organizing the reception and the Ladies Intro. Since February, we as the OWee board have been working full-time on the organization of the reception and the Ladies Intro.

Together with eight Delft students from different studies and associations, we form the OWee board. We are assisted by two supervisors: Alexander Lokhorst and Elma Lutz. In addition, we have our senior adviser Max van der Laan and our junior advisors Ties Verschuren and Paul van de Weijer, both former OWee board members. The OWee board consists of the following students this year:

Alcohol policy The use of alcohol during the OWee is subject to the following rules: 1.

2. 3.

4. 5.

6. 7.

Alcohol will not be provided to anyone under the age of 18. Those under the age of 18 will be given a different wristband to those aged 18 or over. You cannot take part in any OWee event, including the evening programme, unless you are wearing one. There will be strict checks at the entrances to the student associations and at the various OWee bars to see if you are wearing a wristband and what kind. You should always have a valid ID card on you during OWee activities and at the evening events – that includes those aged 18 or over. Any OWee participant under the age of 18 caught consuming alcohol will be immediately removed from the activities/evening programme and their wristband will be confiscated. A note will be made of the name of the OWee participant in question. A decision will then be taken on whether the person in question can buy back their wristband. 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. Participants may not bring their own alcoholic drinks to the OWee events. There will be a zero tolerance policy towards underage drinking during the OWee 2019.

Sustainability Priorities • We want do something useful with old items from the archives that are no longer needed – giving them away, for example, or helping good causes, and recycling certain things like banners. • We want to replace the OWee and Ladies Intro programme booklet with a fold-out programme in order to save paper. • We want to offer more sustainable items in the bags, like useful gadgets and gadgets made from sustainable materials. • We want to put fewer flyers in the bags in order to use less paper. In many cases, the flyers are simply discarded. We would like to introduce a tear-off calendar of the first quarter, to include useful study tips. • We want to create an overall corporate style for signposting this year that can last another ten years. This would save on money and materials. • We want to offer a vegetarian day during the OWee this year. Breakfast, lunch, and evening meal would be vegetarian. The aim is to create greater awareness among the participants and it would also save tens of kilos of meat. • We want to collect all the food that is not eaten during the OWee and take it to homeless shelters or food banks, for example. Such a waste to throw it all away! • We want to use hard cups for the opening party in order to reduce the amount of plastic that is wasted. We are well on our way • In the past three years, a section of BINAS has been cut out, in order to save paper. • There is a buffet for breakfast and lunch, instead of meal crates. • In 2017, we started using better-quality bags for the OWee. They can be used after the OWee rather than being thrown away. • Large plastic bottles were introduced for the bags in 2016 – these too can be reused. This is preferable to plastic bottles that are thrown away. Did you know…? • Did you know that replacing the programme booklet with a fold-out programme means a 75% reduction in the amount of paper used? • Did you know that the OWee Courant (newspaper) was replaced by OWeeTV in 2017, to prevent too much paper being used? • Did you know that BINAS was made 1/6 thinner in 2018 (by cutting out one section)? • Did you know that a tree was planted in 2017 by the OWee Board to make up for the large quantity of paper used? • Did you know that during the 2017 OWee, people’s interest in sustainability was aroused by visiting the Green Village during the Backstage Campus tour? • Did you know that during the 2018 OWee, there was a ‘sustainable Thursday’, when sustainable issues were put in the spotlight and vegan kebab was on the menu? • Did you know that the OWee Board only drinks from mugs to reduce the number of paper cups being used?

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, cafĂŠs, 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

16

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 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 GĂŠrard. 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. Creating 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 solarpowered 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 of Delft 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 In 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.

Dining table (Mensa) After a day of hard study, you do not always have the same desire and time to cook, and certainly not to have to do the dishes. Fortunately, the student associations offer a solution for the hungry student: the dining table, or Mensa. For around € 3.75 you get a great meal. It is cheap (often even cheaper than doing your own shopping).

It’s easy and it’s cozy. Dining tables often differ greatly in quality and waiting time and not all dining tables take food preferences into account. You eat what the pot is doing. Often you can see on the site of the association what is on the menu that evening. Just to be clear, you do not have to be a member of an association with an open dining table to be allowed to eat there!

Housing in Delft

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 accommodation through 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. • Click here for a list of organisations and platforms that (also) cater to students. • Delft municipality offers several insights on housing. • 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.

Housing in Delft

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. Conditions After finding accommodation register your Dutch address as soon as possible in Studielink. Disclaimers • 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.

Student living at her parents Rowan Toet, third year student

What was the OWee like in your year? Unfortunately I couldn’t go to the OWee because I was still on holiday at the time. I later heard a lot about it from my fellow students and it’s a shame I wasn’t able to go.

Why do you still live with your parents? The main reason I still live with my parents is that I study clinical technology, which is given in Delft, Leiden, and Rotterdam. Zoetermeer lies exactly in between these cities. If I lived in Delft, I would still have to travel anyway. I get on very well with my parents and was born and raised in Zoetermeer. All good reasons not to leave home.

Would you advise any prospective students to continue living at home? I think so, certainly in their first year. Doing a new degree programme takes some getting used to and you have to figure out what exactly is expected of you. If you continue to live at home during this time you at least don’t have to worry about things like doing the shopping or washing, which means you can concentrate fully on your studies. Summarise your time as a student in one sentence! A time for learning, but also for making many new friends.

Student living away from home

Eva Heemskerk, freshmen

Why did you leave home? Travelling for two hours a day to attend a lecture was not an attractive proposition, but also, leaving home is the perfect way to get the most out of student life. And there’s nothing better than spending an evening chilling out with your house mates.

30

What type of house do you live in? I live in a house with nine other girls who are in different years. We each have our own room, but we share the living room, bathroom, and kitchen. How do you select the right house? The best thing is to work out for yourself what type of house you’d like to live in – large, small, with boys, girls, or both. Once you have some kind of idea, you can visit houses and see if it clicks. But make sure that it feels good for you as well. Summarise your time as a student in one sentence! Student life is busy, new, and expensive, but it is also great fun.


Study associations

International organisations

Why did you start actively doing sports during your time as a student? It’s something I used to do even before I was a student. When I went to Delft to study, I simply carried on as before, although I have become much more fanatical about it. When you are part of any new group or team in a sports club in Delft, it really becomes like a family. Also, rowing at a high level adds a challenge and structure to your life as a student. You know exactly what time you need to be ready for training each day and together you have a clear goal you aim for. This gives me a huge energy boost. I have already tried giving up rowing a couple of times, but so far I have not been able to. What was the OWee like in your year? My OWee was fantastic, and although it quickly became clear to me that I wanted to continue rowing,

Sporty student Lukas Pragt, sixth year student

I did pop by some of the student associations that I didn’t think would interest me. The OWee is a great opportunity to find out how other students spend their time – the student associations are much less accessible the rest of the year. Summarise your time as a student in one sentence! Because of all the joy I get from rowing and all the social activities related to it, I have a very active and more disciplined time as a student.

Honours student What exactly is the Honours Programme? A programme worth 30 ECTS where you decide yourself what extra courses you take, in addition to your regular programme, for an ‘Honours’ certificate, after three years. Why have you decided to take the Honours Programme? During my first year, I noticed there were certain subjects not on my programme that interested me. Because the Honours Programme is so versatile and flexible, it appealed to me straight away. How do you combine the Honours Programme with your other activities? Because I am often away, I do a lot of MOOCs (online courses) for the Honours.

Tess Bevers, third year student

As they are online, I can work on them at any time, as and when it suits me. Summarise your time as a student in one sentence! So much freedom and so many opportunities.

Member of study association Marije Gelderloos, fourth year student

To what extent has being an active member of your study association affected your studies? During the past few years, I have been on various committees and spent a year on the board of my study association. Being active in my study association has helped my personal development, in addition to the progress I have made in my studies. I have been able to use the experience I have gained for the benefit of my studies.

Why did you decide to join your study association? I joined my study association in order to get my time as a student off to a good start! From day one, you get to know so many of the people you will be studying with, going to Beestenmarkt to have a drink with, or grab a bite to eat with. Joining a study association straight away is a great way to start your life as a student.

In one word, great! It is really interesting to visit all the associations and to get to know Delft better. You also get to know many other students during the OWee, which helps break the ice for your first lesson. Summarise your time as a student in one sentence! It really was a great time, which I will never forget!

Member of student association

Jasper van der Ham, sophomore

Why did you decide to become a member of a student association? I realised just before I became a student that I wanted to enrich my time as a student. There are so many ways to develop your talents in a student association and that really appealed to me. Also, there is the fact that you get to know so many new people.

32

How do you know which association to choose? During the OWee you can visit all the associations, and that gives you a reasonable idea of what’s what. On the other hand, it does not give you a very accurate picture. By talking with people you know and those who are already in a particular student association, you will get a much clearer picture. You can usually sense whether an association is right for you or not. What does a student association add to your time as a student? You get to know many new people, and you build many good friendships from that. The student association is also constantly organising activities with an impressive level of enthusiasm!

TU Delft The world of the TU Delft Choosing to go to TU Delft is about so much more than your choice of study. TU Delft offers high-quality 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 100 nationalities at the university, and almost Faculties and educations a quarter of all students are from outside the TU Delft has eight faculties. These are a type of Netherlands. department at the university that all focus on particular subjects and offer Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in these subjects.

Welcome! During your first few weeks at TU Delft, you will no doubt have all kinds of questions about your studies and everything related to them. From information about registering and deregistering for exams, tuition fees, and financial assistance (Profiling Fund) to lecture times and details on where to find your timetable. To help get you off to a successful start, we have posted all the useful information you need 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.

34

Support during your studies The most important advice is to make sure, from day 1, that you don’t fall behind schedule in your studies. Experience shows that it is almost impossible to catch up once you have fallen behind. Every degree programme has at least one academic counsellor. You can contact the academic counsellor with questions about your degree programme and everything related to it. If it looks as though you are falling behind schedule, it is particularly important to contact the 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 shortterm help with psychological problems that are directly related to your studies, you can contact the TU Delft student psychologists. Study culture and forms of education The study culture at TU Delft is ambitious and enterprising. By Dutch standards, our students follow a relatively difficult and intensive curriculum. You need a positive and active attitude to studying and you

TU Delft have to be able to plan and organise your time properly. Studying at TU Delft means a great deal of independence.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 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 carry out many projects as part of a group. You will experience several different teaching formats during your studies. There will be lectures, where you sit in a lecture theatre with many of your fellow students, listening to what the lecturer is saying. You can use Collegerama to replay lectures online. During tutorials, you get to grips with the course material. These may take place in a laboratory, depending on what you are studying. As well as your lectures and tutorials, some teaching will take place online.

minor at another TU Delft faculty, or indeed one from a university elsewhere 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 makes it easy for you to go on an exchange programme. After completing the final Bachelor’s assignment, you will receive your Bachelor’s degree. 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.

Bachelor structure A Bachelor’s degree programme lasts three years, as is the case at all other universities. At the end of your first year, you will be giving 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.

Structure 1st bachelor year Structure of first Bachelor’s year. What does the first year look like? Roughly speaking, it is divided into four quarters (and sometimes octals). Exams are held several times a year. There is sometimes a ‘white week’ preceding exams, during which there are no lessons. Students use these weeks to revise all the material that has been covered during the past quarter. Our study areas, which have extended opening hours during these weeks, are always packed with hard-working students at this time! As well as study areas, TU Delft has various project rooms. This means you and your project group have somewhere to meet and work together. You are of course free to work on your studies away from the campus.

In your third year, you choose a minor. Minors last six months, and they give you an opportunity to study a particular subject in your programme in depth, or to broaden your knowledge of other fields. You can choose a

linear algebra, calculus, and analysis. You also do laboratory courses in which you carry out a particular assignment in a group and apply your theoretical knowledge in a practical context. Talent development TU Delft also offers various student projects – separate to 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 Vattenfall Solar Team and its Nuna, the car that runs entirely on solar energy. This is a great way to learn, and the experience gained is invaluable for your future career. Bachelor’s students who are capable of more than the regular degree programme and who perform above average 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.

X is a place on campus where you can develop the talents that you don’t necessarily need for an academic education, but which could nevertheless be invaluable throughout your life. X has a varied range of options, from courses and events to projects. Examples include arts, crafts, reflection, lifestyle, sports and games. You can also initiate activities yourself, and you are free to use a student kitchen and living room.

StudieVerenigingenRaad Dear prospective student, During your time as a student, you will have a lot to do with your study association. It starts with the first-year students’ weekend that it organises. But later on too, when buying textbooks, attending career events, or even just having a coffee or a beer, you and your study association’s paths will cross. There are no fewer than fifteen study associations at TU Delft.

The SVR is the umbrella body for all study associations at TU Delft. This is done by three part-time students from different study associations.

Board 54 of the StudieVerenigingenRaad (SVR).

The duties of the Executive Committee of the SVR are to improve mutual contacts between the study associations, and to represent them on a number of TU Delft working groups and committees. Throughout the year, the Executive Committee initiates and organises various meetings where study associations share any issues they wish to raise.

VSSD VSSD represents the interests of students in Delft. We hold discussions with TU Delft and with the universities of applied sciences, the municipality and even the Dutch House of Representatives to make sure that decisions taken about us, as students, are as beneficial to us as possible. We also sell textbooks at a discount in our own shop and we even offer free legal advice!

As elsewhere in the student world, there are constant changes taking place in Delft that directly affect you. But how can you make sure that you in turn can influence the decisions that concern you? That is where we come in!

42

So if there is something that can be done to improve the lives of students, or if you need legal advice, or would like to buy textbooks at a discount, simply drop by the VSSD on Leeghwaterstraat 42!

StuD Stud is the largest student employment agency in Delft and helps as many people as possible find enjoyable and useful jobs. What makes Stud unique is the fact that it is non-profit. This means that the profits it makes are ploughed back for the benefit of students at TU Delft. We do this in various ways. One is Stud Academy – an initiative for improving students’ knowledge about non-study related matters. It means giving students a chance to broaden their minds away from their studies.

We are the board of Stud – seven TU Delft students who are spending a year working full time on its day-to-day business operations. A new group is elected every academic year. Stud also has a body for ensuring continuity, consisting of delegates from the university and the business community. This means you have the opportunity to spend a year helping run a successful business.

Stud is also pleased to contribute to the future and development of TU Delft students. The aim is to encourage innovation in the area of sustainability and entrepreneurship. The Stud Fund supports various student projects in this regard. Examples include the Vattenfall Solar Team, DUT Racing Team, and the TU Delft BlueDot foundation.

Xtend Xtend is the temporary employment agency in Delft for students looking for a job during their time at the university. If you are a passionate technical drawer, programmer, or junior engineer, and you are keen to apply your knowledge and experience at a real company, then we can help!

Got no exams for a while, do your studies allow you plenty of free time, or do you simply want to earn a little extra money? Xtend can always arrange a job that suits your needs. Instructive, flexible, and a great salary! Xtend is run by four enthusiastic students, so we know exactly what you are looking for.

STIP a lively city, and good access for cyclists and public transport. Are you interested in politics too, and would you like to know more? Get in touch via our Facebook page or the www.stipdelft.nl website and come and meet us for a coffee at city hall! Students of Technology In Politics, or STIP, a local political party in Delft, is run by students and offers a fresh look at all the issues affecting Delft. After 25 years, we can proudly say that we have been part of the coalition for more than 20 years, providing a deputy mayor, as a result of which we have achieved a great deal. In recent years, for example, STIP has helped open a supermarket on the campus, and extended opening hours on Sundays. During the next four years, we will be committed to achieving more sustainability,

VeRa Dear participant of the OWee, The best thing you can do during the OWee is call in on the various student associations that our great city has to offer. We firmly believe that more or less everyone in this BINAS will share this opinion. As a group of five people, we, the board of the VerenigingsRaad Delft (‘association council’), arrange the weekly meetings of the seventeen student associations affiliated with VeRa. We also maintain contacts with major parties like TU Delft, the municipality, and the National Federation of Student Associations, the LkVV.

So join a student association if you want to get to know Delft inside out and find the pot of gold that not many non-students will discover.

TU Delft Feminists The TU Delft Feminists is an intersectional feminist network of a diverse group of students and employees. Intersectionality (K.

D.S.V. Nieuwe Delft (De Bolk) The Bolk is a smaller student association in Delft. Everyone is acquainted with each other, which enables us to organise all sorts of things. We do not have any obligations, which makes it easy to be an active member and study at the same time. At the Bolk we don’t do hazing, but we make sure to have a good time. We also do not have year clubs, but there is always someone at the bar to have a drink and a conversation with. Our members are very diverse, which is why we organise many different types of activities.

In one week you could participate in a beer cantus, a dessert-eating-contest and follow-up with a weekend sailing on our boat, Trui*. The association’s building is ‘the’ place where most Bolkers hang out. At the bar you can enjoy a (craft)beer, one of our cocktails or a real ‘Bolksche’ grilled cheese sandwich.

Did you know there is a student house attached to our building? Did you know we have 8 - 2 + 3 fish?

Next to hanging out at the bar you can play table football, do an (un)planned activity or play a board game. Once in a while we throw a mean party as well. In your first year you can already start in committees and organise some awesome activities. You can arrange a thematic event, brew your own beer, make a movie and so much more. There is always room for you to organise something on your own. If Bolkers have an idea, they go for it. From Monday through Thursday you can have a nice threecourse meal for just €3,50. Our meals are prepared by our very own members. We have an introduction period in the week after the OWee. During this week all first years go camping with Trui*. This makes for a great end of your holidays.

DISS DISS is a student led organisation that aims to represent the voice of international students at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). Each year a group of motivated students form the Executive Board that manages DISS on a day to day basis. The focus of the organisation is to help students to get through their troubles by organising various intercultural events and career events, and at times some crazy social events throughout the academic year. This management also focuses on areas such as student accommodation, student affairs, relieving physical and mental problems of students. Not only does DISS deal with the day-to-day problems of the university ‘s international community, they also organise activities, workshops and events.

DISS was established in 2013 and this is our 6th board.

70

DISS has members from different nationalities which includes Bachelor students, Master students and some PhD pursuing candidates.

The calendar includes everything from a monthly movie night and bowling to cooking workshops excursions. It’s a fun and easy way to meet other students. Every year, we celebrate festivals of every nation and culture and help the students studying here feel like home. Last year, we organised various career events which helped students to find some internships and jobs. We also initiated some stress busting events like yoga mornings, gaming nights and various social gatherings. We welcome new students from abroad every year by picking them up from the airport and helping them reach their respective homes safely. The whole motive of the committee is to support students during their stay in the country and help them reach their goals in a much calmer and cooler way, on which we succeed every year.

F.C. Tutor Futsal

This allows you to visit your parents, work or just enjoy your freedom during the weekend. Friday is the standard home game day. The training sessions take place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The best teams train twice a week and the lower teams once a week. The selection trainings are guided by our professional Portuguese trainer Nuno Pereira. Did you know that Messi and Ronaldo started their football careers in the hall? A futsal player is characterized by his ball technique, handling speed and condition. However, futsal is also a game that is often decided on intelligence. Futsal club Tutor is known for winning its matches by strategically outperforming their opponents. The Tutor yellow is worn by around 150 members, both ladies and gentlemen. FC Tutor is the highest playing indoor football club in Delft, but participates at all levels. So if you are a seasoned selection player who accepts nothing less than the championship, or if you just enjoy kicking a ball every week, there is always a team that suits you. In the 2018-2019 season, Tutor 1 played in the Top Division of the KNVB, the third highest level in the Netherlands. But teams are also active up to the lowest class. FC Tutor is the only football club at the TU Delft that plays its matches during the week.

Apart from the competition matches and training sessions, Tutor participates in various national tournaments. A number of other activities take place throughout the season, such as the Batavierenrace, the Tutor internal competition, an annual Tutor day and various drinks. Every Friday, after the matches, there is of course the opportunity to grab some drinks with your fellow Tutorians.

Interested in playing Futsal at FC Tutor? Mail to secretaris@fctutor.com or visit our website www.fctutor.com. Parents of Tutor players are on average twice as happy as those of field football players, because players can come home in the weekend.

On average, a futsal player hits the ball 4.2 times a minute on, opposite 0.37 times on the pitch.

Delft Fencing Club Fencing

Hello! Welcome to the most beautiful sport in the world and the best fencing club in the Netherlands! Fencing boasts a long history and incredible historical figures, like the Three Musketeers and Zorro. The sport is characterised by the combination of agility, technique and responsiveness, from live chess to an explosion of movement. A match between professional fencers quickly looks choreographed. But the one thing that still beats watching a fencing match is fencing yourself, of course. And this is possible. With us. Delft Fencing Club will be sixteen years old this year. We started out as a small association and have always remained one. Our motto is: neat and petite. We practice two out of the three fencing weapons: epee and sabre. Not only do we participate in individual matches, but we also participate in teams, where the second are always the merriest!

Did you know that the number three in the Netherlands is fencing at Delft Fencing Club? Did you know that 40% of our members are internationals?

82

Have you never fenced before? Not a problem! Our beginner courses will teach you the basics in a single quarter. You only need a sportscard to participate. During these courses, you will be taught how to fence epee - where the focus is on technique. After these lessons, you’ll be able to take a sabre - where explosiveness and surprise are most important - in hand. Every course is concluded with a beginner tournament, in which you pair up with an advanced fencer. This does not only make the transition to advanced training easier but also more fun! If you are wondering if this is something for you, martial arts with a real weapon, then join us during the OWee and the open course days of the Sports Centre in September. We will gladly show you what we’ve got!

Force Elektro Ultimate Frisbee

Ultimate Frisbee is a high-paced non-contact sport which requires a lot of agility and tactics. The goal of the game is to catch the disc in one of the endzones of the field. You can’t walk with the disc so you have to throw it around until you reach the endzone.

Besides competition we also join tournaments. During these tournaments you will go away with your team for a weekend to play some ultimate and party in the evenings after. We like to have fun on the field, but we also like to have a lot of fun off the field. Force Elektro organises monthly activities for our members to get to know each other a bit better. You can also join one of our fun committees which organize a lot of fun things in the club.

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 a good vibe on the field. Force Elektro is the Ultimate Frisbee club of Delft. Since 1993, we’ve grown into the second largest Ultimate club in the Netherlands, with around 80 members who play at all kinds of different levels. Our competition teams play in the open, mixed and ladies division. Practices are a few times per week and competition days are about once a month.

Elektro refers to the faculty of electrical engineering, the high iconic building of the TU Delft.

84

Force Electro organizes one of the largest Ultimate tournaments in Delft every year The Netherlands: “Rising High”.

You can join one of our intro practices during the weeks after the OWee. Check our website (force-elektro.nl) or Facebook page (facebook.com/ForceElekro) for more info. You can also mail board@force-elektro.nl for all your questions.

HSV HitManics Hitmanics is the student Baseball and Softball association of Delft. The association has two baseball teams, in the second and fourth class, and a mixed softball team in the third class, so everyone can train and play at their own level. Hitmanics is a 10 year old association, founded by and for students, to stimulate as much gaming fun and personal development as possible. In addition to practice and playing games, extra opportunities are created to have fun, for example drinks or parties within teams or the entire association. Moreover we go to tournaments at other baseball associations a few times a year. For example in Nijmegen, Utrecht or in France, where we can enjoy a nice weekend full of sun, parties and baseball. Because baseball is preferably played in the summer sun, it sometimes happens that a BBQ is planned spontaneously, only to spontaneously escalate into discussions about which pitcher has the sharpest curveball, or which has the best head of foam.

Baseball and Softball

Have you always wanted to play baseball or softball? Or do you already have experience and would you like to play during your studies in Delft? Then we would like to invite you to come and practice with us. All teams practice during the week, the baseball players play games during the weekend and the softball players also play during the week, from April to October.

Hitmanics organizes an annual tournament of friends, in which you can participate with your own team of friends!

S.B.V. Slopend Outdoor sports

We are also involved in bushcraft: surviving in nature with as few tools as possible. (Think Bear Grylls.) There are enough people at Slopend who are eager to share their experience and skills so that you can join without any prior knowledge.

S.B.V. Slopend is a student outdoor sports association that is all about doing things together outside!

In addition, we also enjoy socializing: once a month we have a dinner and a themed drink. Other activities are also organized: orienteering, disco roller skating, laser gaming etc.

Almost every day we have training sessions for the survival run sport: running through nature, and climbing in and over obstacles. Slopend has its own obstacle course at X, built from beams, ropes, nets, and almost everything in between. A couple of times a year we organize weekends where we go hiking through the Ardennes, sleeping in self-made shelters, kayaking, mountain biking and much more. During the summer and winter holidays you can set up expeditions with a group of Slopers and do cool things: climbing the Mount Damavand in Iran, horseback riding in Kyrgyzstan or walking through the snow in Poland are some examples of previous expeditions.

Did you know that Slopend organizes a survival run across the campus every year? The ‘SurivalStrijd’ with more than 800 participants, is the largest paid sporting event at the TU.

86

Did you know that you can train with us every weekday!

At the start of the academic year, we have a completely open introductory period: During the first month you can come to any of the training sessions and activities to see if Slopend suits you. Slopend is an association without a harsh introduction weekend, every member is treated equally, and there are no obligations. You train for yourself and you can come to as many or as few activities as your schedule allows.

S.W.V. Plankenkoorts Windsurfing

Surftrips and camps Our three busses travel through Europe in search of wind and waves: France, Portugal, Denmark, sky’s the limit! Each year during summer break we trip to Leucate and Morocco and in the winter there is a wave surfing and ski trip. Next to these trips we also host surfing camps in the Netherlands. S.W.V.

V.V. Ariston ‘80 Soccer

In short, if you want to be active on the field as well as off the field, there are more than enough activities. Training is on Tuesday and Thursday evening and on Saturday each team plays a match. Our home location is at X TU Delft (the sports center of the TU), but because of our growth we also play at our outdoor location, DVV Delft.

Ariston is the only open student football club within Delft and with as many as 16 men’s and 4 women’s teams also one of the largest football clubs in Delft and surroundings! Within Ariston there is room for football, but in addition, there are many other activities organized for our more than 500 members. Think of weekly get-togethers in our own building the TAP in the city center, monthly theme drinks, an annual own football tournament, a club weekend, winter sports and much more!

Did you know that V.V. Ariston ’80 has 20 teams in total (16 men and 4 women) so that there is always a connection for your level?

Did you know that V.V. Ariston ’80 has its own location since this season “The TAP” in the center of Delft?

The first men’s team plays 3rd class standard, the first women’s team plays 2nd class and the other teams are playing between the 3rd and 8th class reserves. Therefore, there is room for everyone, from experienced footballer to students who are just starting out! Are you not sure yet, but are you interested? Come and visit us during the OWee at the information market, the sports and culture day or at our building the TAP. You can also come to one or more of the open training on 3, 5, 10 and 12 September at X.

SRC Thor Rugby

Especially our student club focuses more on athleticism than on raw strength.

Looking for a place where there are Dutch and Internationals playing sports together, drink together and go to parties together? Look no further, come to Student Rugby Club Thor. Thanks to the transnational culture of rugby, our sport is the perfect link between the Dutch and the international students. With players from England, Ireland, France and many other countries, you will find it easy to feel at home at our club. In our 3 gents teams and 1 ladies team there is a place for everyone on every level. Even for the people who have never played rugby, there is a separate team playing in a freshmen competition. This way everyone can play the sport at his own level!

Rugby is one of the most open-minded sports around. During the games the stakes are high, but once the final whistle has blown everyone drinks together. At our club boat, we drink and eat together after trainings and matches. Thor trains on Tuesdays and Thursdays on the field next to X and on Sundays the competition games are played. During the year we also join several tournaments and go abroad on the infamous rugby trip. Does this sound awesome to you? Then come and visit us on the info market, sports market or come to one of our intro-trainings! Be sure to check out our boat during the Owee or find us on srcthor.nl or our Instagram!

Many think that to play rugby you have to be strong as an ox, but a good rugby team is made up of both the strong forwards as well as the lightning-quick backs that slice through the opponents’ defence.

Our boat the ‘Voorwaarts’ is purchased at a police auction.

Thor’s board table is extra strengthened because the old chairman has fallen through.

Frequently Asked Questions Information about the OWee and first-year students’ weekend 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 18 August and lasts until 22 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 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! What if you want to come to the OWee but can’t manage to be there every day? Sign up anyway, and come on the days when you can make it. Every day is different and fantastic to experience. On Sunday 18 August you will receive information about your mentor and your sleep-inn house by text message. Let them know on which days you will be coming, and which not. What if I fail to get a place on the degree programme of my choice? Even if you are not allocated a place on the degree programme of your choice, you can still come to the OWee. However, we advise you to do the introduction week of your second choice of degree programme in that case. You can deregister for the OWee by sending us an email. If you deregister, you will get your money back, less administration costs. You can deregister until Sunday 11 August. After this date, we will no longer be able to refund your money.

Frequently Asked Questions 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. 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 sciences in Delft. More and more HBO students are coming to the OWee. Last year, there were 430. I don’t drink alcohol; will that be a problem if I come to the OWee? No, not at all! The OWee is for everyone, regardless of whether you drink alcohol or not. Soft drinks and alcohol-free beer are available at all our events. There are students every year who don’t drink alcohol and still enjoy the OWee to the full. So don’t be put off! You can still be a 100% student while being a non-frequent drinker! 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. Where do you sleep during the OWee? If you haven’t found a place to live in Delft yet, we will arrange for somewhere for you to sleep during the OWee. When signing up for the OWee, you can indicate whether or not you

Frequently Asked Questions would prefer to sleep in a student house, which we strongly recommend! Because you will be sleeping in Delft, you will be able to experience the evening programmes to the full. Also, you will get to know even more students who are already familiar with Delft as a student city. The house where you will be sleeping is referred to as your sleep-inn house. You will be informed on the Sunday before the OWee about which house you will be sleeping in. 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. Practical information Until when can you sign up for the OWee? You can sign up online until 17 August at 23:59. A sign-up counter for latecomers will be available at the TU Delft campus on the Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. Some first-year students’ weekends have a limit on the number of participants. It is therefore advisable to sign up for the first-years students’ weekend as soon as possible (possibly after the results of the draw). How much does the OWee cost? Participation in the OWee costs €80. For this, you get breakfast, lunch, and evening meals for the whole week, entry to all activities, entry to all student, sports, and cultural associations, and a place to sleep in a student house, an OWee shirt and 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. What do I need to bring if I am sleeping in a sleep-inn house? A sleeping bag, mat or air bed, pillow, toiletries, and your teddy bear. Is it a good idea to bring a bicycle? Yes, but it is not necessary. Most activities take place within walking distance of each other. There are a number of companies in Delft where you can arrange a bike during OWee. Is it advisable to look for a house in Delft before or during the summer? Among the large student associations, many rooms often become vacant in September. If you are planning to sign up to a large student association, you may decide to wait before looking for a house. If you are not planning to do so and your parents live a long way from Delft, you would be well-advised to start looking for a room before or during the summer. 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 23 August. If you are
