All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! As well as studying, it’s important to discover and develop your talents. And to help you do this, Sports & Culture at TU Delft offers students the opportunity to purchase an inexpensive sports card and to take a range of creative courses. So you can keep fit and extend your boundaries while studying at TU Delft.


The Unit Sports offers 70 different sports and is the home base for 40 TU Delft sports associations.

You can play sports as a member of a sports association or as an individual. And the modern gym is open all day long. Sport try-out lessons are available free of charge during the first two weeks of the academic year, so you can come and find out what suits you best. And your sports card entitles you to great discounts, including SnowWorld, De Uithof and Outdoor Valley.


The Unit Culture is home to five cultural associations and around 70 creative courses are given each semester. A culture subscription entitles you to use the unit’s rehearsal rooms and modern studios. An Open Evening is held at the beginning of every academic year where you can find the activity (or activities) that suits you best.


Besides the standard courses, a range of extra activities are held each month, such as the free Friday Nights with bands and DJs, special events, films, workshops and interesting talks. So keep an eye on the S & C website and follow us on Facebook; there’s always something going on!

The Apollo student orchestra is the symphony orchestra of the DSC (Delft Student Corps). Apollo is a fun orchestra to play in, but also highly proficient thanks to the exertions of the musicians and a skilled conductor.
Twice a year Apollo goes on a rehearsal weekend, when they stay in a group accommodation and rehearse intensively. Of course there’s also plenty of time to relax and socialise!
Apollo is a classical orchestra, however they are also open to other music styles. During the 32nd DSC lustrum, Apollo gave a sizzling concert in a metropole-style formation together with the rock singer Ellen ten Damme.
The annual solo music evening is in December. In May it’s time for the Phoenix Night of the Proms, an evening during which all the DSC music groups give performances until the early hours of the morning. Apollo stands for a fun atmosphere combined with beautiful music. If you play an instrument then Apollo is for you!


Katharsis is the drama society of the Sint Jansbrug student association.
Katharsis creates a new production every year, often with live music. The repertoire is highly divers, from classical to modern, and from Shakespeare to ‘Sloffen en Sletten’ (a play based on John Turturro’s film ‘Romance and Cigarettes’).
Together with a professional director, and sometimes a vocal coach, the Katharsis actors rehearse for their impressive performance in the Culture Centre’s big hall. But that’s not all. Katharsis has other projects too. In 2009 Katharsis gave a brilliant performance at the ‘Mooi Weer Spelen’, the cultural festival in the heart of Delft. There they involved passers-by in a special street theatre performance.
