Student life at TU Delft is organized around numerous student societies and corporations. They can be generally categorized into professional societies, social societies and sport societies. Apart from professional student societies, students organize themselves only for the purpose of enriching their social life. Delft has many entertaining clubs and pubs, each with its own special atmosphere. It won’t take long before you find one that you like. Some restaurants and pubs occasionally have live music. In summer, sitting outside and having a drink with friends is a favorite occupation. The Beestenmarkt is a small square in the city center surrounded by outdoor cafés, bars and restaurants. When the weather is good, it is a popular place. Obviously The Hague and especially Rotterdam are good destinations for a night out.

Exchange students are be offered 1 semester-contracts, with a maximum of one semester’s extension only. Cancellations during the contract period are not allowed. All rooms are within a 30-minute distance to campus, by bike and/or public transport. Both private and shared student units are available.

In addition, we work closely with employers, professional organizations and alumni to create positive connections between them, the University and students. Delft offers a wide range of workshops and activities to enhance students’ skills and help them find the perfect new course, job or internship.

It forms part of the Randstad, the urban agglomeration in the west of the Netherlands and is the nation’s main educational and research centre.
