Lost and found
Have you lost an item? Or found something that did not belong to you? Items are kept at our service desk.

However, TU Delft Library is not liable for any lost items or damages.

Filming and photography rules
Photographing and / or filming in our building is permitted if you follow a number of rules.

Time for reflection
Work hard, study, present and deliver. How do you maintain that and how do you keep your balance? At Sports & Culture Center X at TU Delft there is now a central Contemplation Room where you can come to yourself. You can go there for reflection, meditation, prayer or just for a moment of silence, away from the daily worries. All employees, students and invited guests are welcome, regardless of their beliefs. The reflection space is intended for individual use only. Do you want to use it? Follow the TU Delft X house rules so that everyone can feel comfortable there. You do not need an X subscription for this.

Sporting activities on the roof
Using the roof for sporting activities such as skiing, sledging and cycling activities are not permitted on the roof, due to the risk of personal injuries and the possibility of damaging the roof.
