Van der Waals is the study association for and by Applied Physics students. It organizes several study-based and non study-based activities as well as fosters the social contacts among students.
The most well-known activity of this association is the ’Drinks’: an informal get-together every Thursday starting at 4 pm, something that has become a kind of melting pot for both students and staff at the Applied Physics department.

STOOR fosters the interests of all the department’s students via various student participation bodies and provides students with the right kind of information, such as old examination papers to optimally prepare for an examination.
