Student services

Delft is well known for being a friendly city with a lively student population. It is the city with the largest number of active student societies (studentenvereniging) in the Netherlands. You could also join a study association (studievereniging). Study associations are attached to a particular programme, whereas student societies are open to all.

Student Life

Sports facilities

On the TU Delft campus, you will also find the Unit Sport & Culture. As a student, you will be eligible to buy a sports card at a reduced rate. The card entitles you to unrestricted participation in sports training and courses. The cultural programme comprises a varied range of courses and workshops relating to music, theatre, dance, design, media and technology.

Student clubs

  • Student societies
Student societies organise cultural, sporting and political activities. Joining a student society is a great way of getting to know people. These societies also encourage personal development as they give you the opportunity to help organise the activities being arranged for students.
  • Study associations
Every programme at TU Delft has its own study association. A study association represents student interests, organises programme-based activities, such as study trips and excursions, and provides entertainment. Members of a study association usually benefit from substantial discounts on the textbooks.
