Information about being a student at TU/e or an expat in Eindhoven can be hard to find, and you can often feel lost or left out. At Cosmos, we aim to collect as much information as possible about student life at the TU/e and provide tips, especially to those moving to the Netherlands for the same time.
Regardless of whether you are about to start your new life in the Netherlands or have lived here for a while, this wiki contains lots of information and tips that help you survive in the city and at the university.
If you would much rather talk to us in person, you are always welcome to go to our Common Room and talk with us.
We are located on the ground floor of the Metaforum Building in room MF 0.090. As the Common Room is kept open by volunteers, opening times vary, but you can almost always find us on working days between 12:00-17:30. If you are unable to find the room, we recommend you go to the markthall and look to the East of the stairs ascending to Metaforum.
Discord is a great mix between modern messaging service and those old community-driven forums that were prevalent in the internet. Thanks to the ability to create topic-oriented text channels, we have been able to answer questions effectively through there, as well as people finding their question was asked before and being able to access the responses through the search bar. This is extremely useful during the admissions period as other means of finding information can get too busy and the university is overloaded with emails.
We understand Discord might have a learning curve to most people, but we recommend Ian Corzine's video "How to Use Discord App - EASY Discord Tutorial". When you join our discord, just choose roles through our "#welcome" and "#major-role" to gain access to all the channels in the discord.
