Intro 2020

Posted by ESSF

New students, welcome in Eindhoven! This catchphrase is true during every Introduction Week, but especially during this special year!

During this Introduction Week, all sports associations are present and spread out over four fields for the market on Tuesday and Wednesday. Every sports association hosts their own small event (for instance: climbing, archery, volleyball, rowing etc.) at their stand, keeping strictly to the safety rules. Then, on Thursday and Friday, we will host workshops (where you can actively and safely participate) at the SSC and all around the campus.

Please note that access to the fields is restricted to participants of the TU/e Introduction Week only. If you aren't a TU/e student, you are welcome to join us during the SSCE Open Week instead from the 21st of September.

Besides the in person activities, ESSF associations also host some nice introductory sports events during September, which you can find on the Upcoming Events page. You can find all associations here: Associations, we're sure that there is one that fits your style!


ESSF and it's associations strictly adhere to the rules set out for the Introduction Weeks, as described here: COVID-19 Measures during the TU/e Introduction Week, to make the Introduction Week safe for all attendants.

COVID-19 Measures during the TU/e Introduction Week

Posted by ESSF

As announced by the government on the 6th of August, stricter measures have been imposed for activities during introduction weeks. To clarify these measures for associations and participants, the following post was made:

The following restrictions apply for our member associations up to the 31st of August:

  • 1,5 meters has to be kept at all times, except directly during sports activities, where we ask you not to share materials between participants and to clean materials in between timeslots.
  • All approved activities within the Intro Program can continue, but no new public physical activities can be organized (both inside and outside of the Program). Member activities, where no public access is allowed, are excluded from this rule and can continue using the same rules as before.
  • All drinks, barbecues etc. are cancelled when they are publically accessible.
  • No activities in 'club houses' (verenigingshuizen) or 'club rooms' are allowed. An exception may be made for those present to host a WLF activity, however, you should minimize the amount of attendants, and no non-members may be present.
  • No alcohol during all association or program activities, for all participants, helpers or anyone else present.

The following measures are taken at the SSCE:

  • During days that Introduction Week participants are present at the SSCE, no alcohol will be available until after the end of the programme (21:00). Introduction Week participants are strongly motivated to leave after this time.
  • Routing restrictions will stay in place: you can enter at the front entrance and leave through the back/side doors. Associations will lead Introduction Week participants through the correct route.
  • Toilets are open, clothing rooms and showers remain closed.


We hope that we can still organize a great Introduction Week with these restrictions! See you on campus!
