Student participation

In Delft

The student council of TU Delft represents the interests of students at the Executive Board. The council holds ten seats, which are held by party members of ORAS and Lijst Bèta.

The Delft International Student Society (DISS) was established by TU Delft’s student council and VVSD student union for the benefit of international students to act as the missing link between these students and the administration. DISS helps the student council and student union to successfully represent international students.

The StudieVerenigingenRaad (SVR) is the umbrella body for all TU Delft student societies. Its main task is to stimulate collaboration and consultation between student societies.

The VSSD protects the interests of all Delft students. The VSSD is a member of the national student organisations LSVb and ISO.

Sport & Cultuur Verenigingen Raad
The Sports & Culture Associations Council (SCVR) aims to back the interests of student sports and culture associations and individual practitioners of student sports and culture in Delft. To achieve this, SCVR communicates closely with the many sports and culture associations affiliated with Delft University of Technology and X. Additionally, SCVR promotes the participation of Delft athletes in student sports activities (Batavierenrace, NSK’s, the GNSK), and hands out subsidies to stimulate this participation. SCVR is a member of StudentenSport Nederland.


“The Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg (ISO) is a national student organisation which represents the interests of all students in the Netherlands. ISO maintains relationships with students active in student participation as well as other national organisations for students: AIESEC Nederland, Integrand Nederland, NSSS and LKvV. ISO also gives advice on higher education in the Netherlands to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.”

"The Landelijke Studenten Vakbond (LSVb) promotes the interests of all students in the Netherlands. The LSVb is a federation comprising 23 student unions, which either promotes the interests of students at a specific institute or those of a specific group of students. The LSVb regularly meets with the Ministry of Education, Cultural Affairs and Science, the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) and the HBO raad (The Netherlands Association of Universities of Applied Sciences)."
