Freezones are designated areas on campus that can be reserved by TU Delft students and staff members only between 08.00 and 21.00, Monday to Friday. Electricity, running water and drainage facilities are free to use for activities in the Freezones. The Freezones can be used for studying, researching, relaxing or working outside. Or why not try holding a meeting or project presentation outdoors? The Freezones come in three different sizes, so you can be sure of finding an area suitable for your planned activity. 

Reserving a Freezone

Freezones are easy to use. All you need to do is reserve via TopDesk, the Service Desk or the secretary's office at least one working day in advance. Don't forget to allow time for setting up and clearing up when you make your reservation.

In order to make use of the facilities (water/electricity) in the Freezone, you need a key. You can pick it up from and return it to the information desk in the Aula Building.


The Freezones are located in public areas between the buildings where staff and students work and study. There are a number of rules that should be observed. Promoting political or religious beliefs is not permitted in the Freezones. 

Fire up the BBQ
Great! A barbecue! ... but only with a fire extinguisher and at the grass the nearest by the Freezone. Open fires are not permitted.
No alcohol
No alcohol may be served or sold in the Freezone. A permit from the municipality needs to be applied for in order to do that.
Max. 250 people
Freezones are available in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.
Free of charge
Reserve via TopDesk, the Service Desk or the secretary's office at least one working day in advance.
No sound installations
Excessive loudness is not permitted. For example, music may not be amplified. In the event of complaints from teaching and/or research between 9:00 and 17:00, activities must be halted.
8.00h - 21.00h
A Freezone can be used from 8:00 to 21:00. When making a reservation, be sure to allow for time for setting up and clearing up.

Want to check whether your activity is suitable for a Freezone? Or would you like to organise something in Mekel Park rather than a Freezone? We are happy to help. Visit the information desk in the Aula Building or contact us on 015 27 89222 or at
