Student life in Eindhoven is heavily based on associations. An association, in short, is a group of students that share a common interest, that organizes events related to that interest. However, for many, this is simply the starting point, and associations will often organize unrelated activities for the sake of doing things together with others in the association. For instance, the tennis association Fellenord mostly organizes training and competitions, but members will also get together to have a drink etc.

While joining an association is not a requirement by any means, it is an easy way to meet new people and one of the best ways to experience student culture in Eindhoven.

Associations fall into ____ major categories:

Study Associations

FSE is the umbrella organization for study associations of the TU/e. Each study at the TU/e has it's own study association, and most study associations have their own bar in their respective building on campus. Study associations organize many career related events relevant for students in their faculty, but also have many leisure activities and workshops.

Each study association also organizes a weekly social drink known as a borrel every Thursday in their respective bars. Borrels are free to enter for any TU/e student, though most usually go to the one organized by their study. Borrels are held on Thursdays, from 16:00 - 17:00.

A full list of study associations is provided below (in alphabetical order):

Cultural Associations

Scala is the umbrella organization for cultural associations at the TU/e. Most cultural associations meet once or twice a week for their particular activities, and will often meet more often to just spend time as a group. Most are located in the basement of the Luna building on Campus.

Student Associations

Compositum is the umbrella organization for student associations at the TU/e. A student association is what in other cultures is often referred to as a fraternity. This means they organize parties, drinks, and other such activities. Student associations in Eindhoven have a rich history and many traditions, and thus most require you to speak some amount of Dutch. However, they do organize events open to the public throughout the year. If you would like to join a student association, be prepared for some hazing.
