Information campus The Hague

The MSc programme Engineering and Policy Analysis is based at Leiden University's Wijnhaven building at Turfmarkt 99 in The Hague. TU Delft is leasing over 400 m2 of office and laboratory space on the fifth floor of the building.For students several so-called train carriages, are available, which can serve as study workspaces.
Moreover students can use all study workspaces. Lectures will primarily take place in the auditoria and 'flat' lecture rooms in the building.

ICT facilities

EPA students will be assumed to have their own laptops. In addition they can use their Leiden University account and the LU card to access general student facilities in the building (such as study workspaces, printing facilities, and the library).

Network

In the Wijnhaven building, staff and students can make use of the wireless Eduroam network, just as they can at TU Delft. This can be done with the same laptop or mobile device configuration and simply using the TU Delft NetID.
In the offices and laboratories on the fifth floor workspaces have been set up equipped with docking sets (screen, keyboard, mouse) for laptops. These can be linked via USB, thereby providing access to the cabled network within the building.
ICT needs to make final preparations in order to enable devices to make direct use of the fixed network connections (e.g. in the labs). For this, please contact the OTBM Service Desk. The OTBM Service Desk is also the first point of contact for any ICT support you may need on site. They can be contacted by telephone on: +31152789801. Remote support is provided by TU Delft/TPM workspace services.
