Without ORAS no…
For many years now, ORAS is helping realizing things for the student of the TU Delft. Below you can find a short list of things that wouldn’t be there without ORAS.
XXL Library opening hours
You should be able to study whenever you want. Thanks to ORAS the library is open 365 days a year and opening hours have been prolonged during exam periods. In addition, Thanks to ORAS the Aula also opens during the weekends of the exam period.
Lectures on Collegerama
ORAS is a strong supporter of flexible education. Thanks to ORAS, every student can review his/her lectures in Collegerama later on. We keep being involved in innovations within Collegerama such as adding a flexible speed bar.
Opening the Auditorium during weekends
To create more study places during weekends in exam periods, ORAS initiated the opening of the Auditorium during these periods.
Always searching for regular computers at the campus? Do you have a Mac on where you have to run Windows? Thanks to ORAS, you can use all TU programs with your own laptop or mobile device via Virtual Desktop at any time. Via your own laptop or mobile device you can always use all TU programs. Check the manual.
Bike repair spots
Are you standing with a flat tire in the Mekelpark? From now on, you can always stick your tire, inflate and repair your bicycle on campus, thanks to the bike repair pallet!
Overview of opening hours
Every student wants to study where and whenever they want, but not all faculties have the same opening hours. Through an overview on our posters and website we make it clear for you where you can study on campus.
Counting summer resits
Did you miss your last course for you bachelor or BSA? Thanks to ORAS the exams made in the summer count for your BSA and Bachelor. So you can still continue in September with your second year or start with your master.
Laptop locks in the Library
Have a cup of coffee on the grass or in the coffee corner without worrying that your laptop gets stolen? Lend at the desk of the UB a laptop lock and make sure nobody takes your laptop. You can get them also outside the exam period.
Need to print something but you can not find a computer? Since last year it is possible to print from your mobile phone or tablet thanks to ORAS. Check this link for the manual and more useful tools
Thanks to the efforts of ORAS 100 extra study places were added this year in the south wing of the library . Furthermore extra quiet study places were created at the ground floor of the faculty CEG. To absorb the growing number of students we are further looking at where on campus more places can be created, such as Pulse.
Supermarket on campus
For several years ORAS has been aiming for alternatives to Sodexo catering. Former STIP alderman Pieter Guldemond has picked up this signal and arranged for a supermarket to be built. This coming summer there will be a supermarket just behind the CEG faculty at the Stieltjesweg.
RAS certificate with your degree
RAS is a legally required financial compensation from the university for participation in student boards or other initiatives. Because of ORAS the budget for RAS will not be reduced next year. Furthermore, we arranged a complimentary certificate for participation in these boards and initiatives.
Mathematics and mechanics counter
ORAS initiated the math and mechanics question counter in the Libary. Right at the desk of the Library is the desk with students who are willing to help you with math and mechanics problems. So do not be afraid to walk by with a question
Master kick-off days
During a master degree many different fields of study and backgrounds come together. The connection between students is often difficult, especially with international students. In order to improve integration, ORAS initiated the Master Kick-off days.
