Let's connect!

Do you want to connect with your fellow students? Then come to the POP-up Living Room on the ground floor of the Pieter de la Court building!

The Living Room is a meeting point for students where there is room for conversations and meeting new people, and where you can take part in fun activities. Settle down with your fellow students and start a real talk using the question cards on the tables.

If you want to join in with brainstorming about re-connecting activities, or if you have ideas you want to present, please contact Rosalinde Spitters, Student Well-being contact.

I Care pillar

Have you spotted the I Care pillar yet? This bright green pillar is almost impossible to miss. The I Care pillar is part of the FSW I Care campaign and offers the opportunity to connect with each other by matching offer and demand.

Are you looking for a buddy – to study together or do an activity together? Do you need help with studying, or can you offer help to others? Or do you want to leave an inspiring quote for your fellow students? Write your wish or offer on a card and pin it on the pillar. Let's connect!
