About S&C

The Unit Sports & Culture is responsible for the development, programming and implementation of TU Delft's sports and cultural policy. S&C consists of three units: Sports, Culture and Events. In addition, three departments (Communication; Services, Planning and Support; and Catering) provide expertise to support these units.

Thanks to the help of some 50 student organisations, hundreds of teaching staff (most of whom part-time) and trainers, S&C is able to provide an attractive programme of activities in which some 12,000 students and staff members participate each year. The primary goal of S&C is to provide added value to the university experience by contributing to the personal development of the students, the quality of campus life and the social engagement of TU Delft.
