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 first 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 can help you survive in the city and navigate through 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 Markthal and look to the East of the stairs ascending to Metaforum.
Discord is a great mix between modern messaging services and those old community-driven forums that were prevalent on the internet. Thanks to the ability to create topic-oriented text channels, we have been able to answer questions effectively through there. People can also check if their question has been asked before by accessing 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 for 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" channels to gain full access to the server.
