Cancellation offline activities

October 16th, 2020

Most of you already read the new measurement given by the Dutch government. These, of course, also apply to our association. We got word from our faculty with a set of regulations to which we need to adhere to, to create a save environment for everyone.

There are two important updates: the first one is that we are no longer allowed to organise offline activities. This means that all the activities on and around the campus will be cancelled for at least the upcoming 4 weeks (until 13/11/2020). But this does not mean that SVTN “J.D. van der Waals” will stop organising activities! The committees and the board will try to create many interesting and engaging online activities for everyone. Suggestions for creative ‘online activities/contactless activities’ will always be welcome and can be sent to . The second update is that we are luckily allowed to keep the Van der Waals room open for members! This means that you are still allowed to come by when studying on the campus to grab a cup of coffee, have a small chat, or just relax for some time.

The board is currently also updating the Van der Waals Discord server which you can join via this link. This discord is made for all our members and has different voice and text channels which will be updated regularly. You can have a chat, play some games, or join in one of the voice channels to create e.g. a study group!

Reopening Van der Waals room

August 31st, 2020

After months of being closed, Van der Waals will be open for walk-in once again from 03-09 onwards! Though in a different fashion, due to the strict limits on the occupation of our rooms. You can come by in the colloquium room on floor 6 to ask your questions, have a chat and/or enjoy a fresh cup of coffee or tea. If you want to make an appointment, you can pick a time slot in the document that you can find under ‘For members’, then ‘Make an appointment’ (you will have to log in first). The people in this schedule will have priority over spontaneous visitors. If you need a specific board member, it’s best to send them an email or a text message to ask for their availability (and presence). We are looking forward to seeing you in person again!
