The TU Delft has drawn up a set of house rules. These rules and regulations relate to the proper use of the buildings, grounds and facilities of TU Delft by students and visitors.





Sports card compulsory

You may only use the Sports facilities if you have a valid sports card, which you must present to the staff on request. The sports card is your personal property, so do not mislay or damage it. In case of loss, theft or serious damage you can purchase a replacement card for € 7.50.

Group Lesson

To register for a group lesson log in to the website. Registration is possible from 13:00 on the day of class. If you do not have a netID, please send an e-mail to before 13:00. Please pick up your card at the Sports Desk, at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the lesson. In case you are too late, your spot will be granted to someone on the reserve list.

Reserve list

If the class is fully booked, it is possible to be added to the reserve list. You can be placed on the reserve list 30 minutes prior to the start of the lesson. First come, first serve. If a spot opens up, you can partake in the group lesson after all.

Report missing cards..Prevent misuse!

The use of sports cards and/or fitness is strictly personal at all times. It is not permitted to make use of someone else's sports card and/or fitness pass (one you have found, for example). In order to prevent loss and/or misuse, we advise you to report your lost sports card and/or fitness pass at the Sports desk. Unfortunately, the Unit Sports has been compelled to take measures against the illegitimate use of sports cards and fitness subscriptions: sports cards and fitness subscriptions that are used without authorisation will be deactivated and only returned to the legitimate owner if they have been previously reported as missing.


You can use the general sports card to participate in all activities, with the exception of activities for which additional charges apply, such as fitness.

Sporting behaviour

Sporters are expected to show sporting behaviour wherever they are: on the field, in the sports hall, on the track, in the Sports cafe, etc.

Refund of purchase price of sports card

From 17 August 2015, the modified refund regulations will apply. These regulations will replace the current refund regulations and meet the demands of the large number of students who already know for certain at the beginning of the academic year that they will only participate in the study programme of TU Delft until February at the latest.

A student who buys a sports card in the period from August to January and can prove that he/she will return to a foreign country, do an internship or study in a foreign country in January will immediately receive a refund when he/she purchases the sports card. In this period, a fixed refund amount of €58 applies, meaning that the student only has to pay the netted amount of €52 (€110 - €58) at the Sports information desk.

The following documents must be submitted to the Sports desk:
- Internship agreement (stating the commencing date) or enrolment notice for the study programme, with the deadline falling on 01-02-2016.

  • Example 1

If the student purchases a sports card in September and can prove that he/she will go (or return) to a foreign country in January, he/she will pay €52 at the Sports desk. The sports card is valid up to and including 31 January 2016 in this case.

  • Example 2

If the student purchases a sports card in November and can prove that he/she will go (or return) to a foreign country in January, he/she will pay €52 at the Sports desk. The sports card is valid up to and including 31 January 2016 in this case.

  • Example 3

If the student purchases a sports card in September for a full year, he/she will pay €110 at the Sports desk. If the student decides in January to do an internship in a foreign country at the end of March, he/she can choose to have €58 refunded to him/her afterwards. The sports card is valid up to and including 31 January 2016 in this case. If the student wishes to continue to do sports up to and including March, he/she can do so, but he/she will no longer be entitled to a refund.

Please note that the modified refund regulations always prescribe a fixed refund amount of €58, applicable up to and including 31 January 2016. Given the fact that the rates of the sports card will be frequently changed as of 1 February 2016, a refund will no longer be granted after this date.

In case of injuries, refunds will be considered on an individual basis. A statement from a doctor must be provided in the event of injuries.


  • Always wear sportswear when using the facilities.
  • Sports shoes for indoor use must be clean and may not be used outdoors.
  • Sports shoes that leave marks on the floor (mainly black-soled shoes) are prohibited in the sports halls.
  • Shoes with metal studs are prohibited on the artificial grass fields.
  • Tennis shoes are compulsory on the SmashCourt courts.
  • The Dojo may only be entered barefoot or when wearing special footwear specifically intended for this purpose.

Dangerous sports

A number of dangerous sports, such as climbing and fencing, may only be practised in the presence of an instructor.

Clean up after use

Leave all rooms (sports halls, changing rooms, etc.) behind in a clean and tidy state. Failure to do so may result in the user being charged for cleaning costs.





Use of the rooms
By purchasing a subscription (music, dance & theatre, DJ, theatre, film and photo) you get access to a wide range of rooms. The instruments and equipment are valuable, which is why we have a number of rules that apply to all users. We expect you to be familiar with these rules. Please visit the desk if you wish more information.

Workpieces made at the Unit Culture remain the property of Sports & Culture for two months after being created. After this period they may be collected. Sports & Culture stores unclaimed workpieces until the beginning of the new academic year, after which they will permanently become the property of Sports & Culture, whereby Sports & Culture also reserves the right to use them in publications.

If you discover or cause damage to materials or facilities, please report this to one of the Sports & Culture desks immediately so that we can repair the damage quickly. Damage caused by negligent behaviour will be charged to the person responsible.

Lost and found property
Have you lost or found property? Please report this to one of the Sports & Culture desk staff. If you have lost property the staff member at the desk will note down your name and telephone number.

Food and beverages
It is not permitted to consume, distribute or sell food and beverages on the sports fields or in the rooms and halls. Food and beverages may only be consumed in the Sports cafe and the Culture cafe.

No-smoking rule
Policy dictates that all Sports & Culture facilities are non-smoking.

Leaving rooms in their original configuration
The rooms and halls must be left in a clean and tidy condition and be returned to their original configuration. In each room you will find a chart with this original configuration displayed on it. If you use a room then you are responsible for returning it to the original configuration after use. If necessary we will charge any extra cleaning costs to the hirer/user.
It is not permitted to move equipment between the various rooms. If you notice that something is missing from a room, or the room is not in its original configuration, please report this to the desk.





Finger scan data
For our reservation and payment system, we ask customers to make a finger scan. This finger scan cannot be traced as a true print. The prints are not saved as images, (as is the case with the government) but as an 'algorithm'. The algorithm consists of a number of 364 positions, it is patented and also protected by encryption (aes256, the highest form of encryption). This ensures the privacy of our customers. The algorithm is not applicable for purposes other than access to our services and facilities. The saved 'algorithm' ensures that our customers are immediately recognizable in the reservation and payment system. This enables us to serve our customers faster.
For questions or more information, please refer to the Sports desk, Culture desk or the information desk in the Fitness.

Emergency exits

Emergency exits must always be kept clear of obstructions in connection with fire safety regulations.

The prices for students and non-students are listed on the Sports & Culture website. Prices for courses are inclusive of lesson materials unless otherwise stated.

Price changes
The Sports & Culture unit reserves the right to change prices if necessary during the season.

Cancelling activities
Sports & Culture reserves the right to cancel planned activities. No rights can be derived from any errors in planning or pricing of activities.

Purchases at Sports & Culture will not be refunded or exchanged, except in the following situations: 

  • the activity for which you paid was cancelled by Sports & Culture;
  • you do not pass an audition or selection procedure for an activity for which you have paid;
  • the activity for which you paid via bank transfer turns out to be fully booked.

You participate in all Sports & Culture activities at your own risk. Sports & Culture is not responsible for theft, loss or damage to personal property. Do not leave valuables behind in classrooms, changing rooms, etc. In the Sports Centre you can rent a locker for free. We recommend you take out a suitable liability and accident insurance policy.

Missing a course
A course (with an exception of some ART-3D courses) contains 7 lessons. In case of illness or absence of the teacher the course will be postponed one week; please reserve a period of 8 weeks. Unfortunately it is not possible for a student to reschedule a missed class. 

Non-students/employees of TU Delft
If you aren’t a student or employee of TU Delft but you are interested in one of our courses, you’re very welcome to subscribe last minute. This means you can step by when the course starts to inform if there’s a spot available. If that’s the case you can subscribe immediately after class. On the day the course starts you can call our Culture desk to check the availability. Students always take priority.
