The Introduction Week (OWee) of the new students will take place in Delft from 21 to 25 August. During this week, the OWee board is organizing various events on the TU Delft Campus and in the city. The events will probably not pass you by unnoticed. Of course we do everything we can to ensure that the OWee runs smoothly. Nevertheless, the activities can still cause temporary (noise) nuisance. If you experience any inconvenience, we ask you to report this. See below how to do that. You are of course very welcome to participate in various activities.
What does the OWee Board do?
In the preparations for the OWee the board has a lot of contact with the municipality of Delft. There is a weekly meeting in which several action points have emerged. For example, this year there is a central reporting point for nuisance and there is more communication with the inhabitants of Delft.
Letters are sent to all homes around OWee events, stating what is going to take place, when the construction and dismantling is and who they can contact in case of nuisance. In addition to these letters, the OWee has held an information evening to which the interest groups of Delft have been invited.
During the OWee a safety meeting takes place every morning. Student associations, the municipality, enforcement, police, TU Delft and the OWee board are present. During this meeting all received reports are discussed and together they look at a plan of action to further prevent these kinds of incidents.
The OWee starts on August 17 with a Digital Day. Here a talk show will take place where, among others, a resident of Delft will be present. The OWee Board has done this to show the participant that they will not only live in a city with students, but also with other residents.
Events for residents
As a resident of Delft you can of course also enjoy the OWee! There are various events that are accessible to all residents of Delft.

Absolute Value Festival - Thursday 25 August 13:00 - 17:00 - Mekelpark (Campus)
This day revolves around preparing the participants for their life as independent students. Topics such as well-being, sustainability and social cohesion will be central on this day. Here you are most welcome to enjoy the music, atmosphere and food trucks that will be there during this relaxed event! In this way we want to bring city and student together in a friendly atmosphere!
Together with the municipality and TU Delft, we try to make the OWee fun for all residents of Delft. For residents and students. Are you experiencing nuisance? It is important for us, the municipality and TU Delft to be able to respond properly to this. Therefore, always report nuisance. You can do this via www.delft.nl/melden. Is there serious nuisance? Then call the police at the moment on 0900-8844. The police can then enforce. During the OWee and the two introductory weeks of the student associations after that, there is daily consultation between the parties involved to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
