History of Cosmos


The Common Room naturally arose as a living room in “De Bunker” on Thursday October 21st 2010 by a diverse group of TU/e international students. International students back at that time realized there was a lack of places of social interaction for them and also it was relatively difficult to integrate in the Dutch student culture.

Later in 2012, two of the founding students proposed to the university to establish an international student association. The proposal got the university’s approval.

Starting from February 1st 2013, the Common Room moved to the MetaForum building on the TU/e campus. As of now, this is the current home-base for the Cosmos association

Ever since the beginning, and through the increased internationalization of the university until today, Cosmos has been at the forefront of providing a space, a voice, and a family to our members and those part of our community.
