Frequently asked questions about the situation around Ukraine
Are there any actions I can support?
Meanwhile, students and employees have already set up several actions to support people in Ukraine. For example, for every student and employee of TU/e we have donated one euro on Giro 555. The total amount is 20,000 euros. We call on everyone inside and outside the university community to also make a generous contribution. Especially for this purpose, a TU/e-Giro555 action page has been created where you can deposit your contribution. There you can also follow the current status. Every donation is welcome! University Fund Eindhoven has a fund of 100,000 euros in creation. In consultation with...
Can I apply for a loan from DUO?
On the DUO website, you can find out if you qualify for a loan.
Can I study at TU/e as a refugee student?
I can no longer pay my rent because of the war. Who can I turn to?
We are here to support you. For example, we can give you more information about your rights and obligations and advise you on the steps to take. You can contact Johanna Mavromichalis (email@example.com) for this.
I can't focus on my studies and therefore miss deadlines. Can the teacher give me a deferral?
We can imagine that students who have been affected by the war in any way are unable to focus on their studies because of the constant worry and uncertainty and that deadlines are missed. We ask teachers to be attentive to this and to be lenient in dealing with it.
I can't pay my tuition fees anymore.
Can't pay your tuition due to the war in Ukraine? In that case, the collection of your tuition will be postponed until a time to be determined.
As of the academic year 2022-2023, we will reduce the tuition fees for prospective and current students with Ukrainian nationality and for refugees from Ukraine. They will then pay the statutory fee (€2,209) for all bachelor and (pre-)master programs.
I may experience study delay because of the war in Ukraine. Am I eligible for compensation from the Student Financial Support fund?
You may be entitled to financial compensation from the Student Financial Support fund if there are recognized personal circumstances and these circumstances are related to the study delay. A war situation is considered a recognized personal circumstance. Visit the education guide for more information or contact a student counselor.

Is financial aid available?
For the financial consequences of the war, an emergency support fund has been set up to provide for the basic needs of students with Ukrainian or (Belarusian) Russian (dual) nationality who now need support with this. If you do not belong to this group, but are in need of financial support as a result of the war in Ukraine, we ask you to contact us as well. If you want to use the emergency support fund, please contact your academic advisor or student counselor. This also applies if you can no longer pay your tuition fees or room rent due to this situation. The academic advisor or student...
What happens to cooperation with Ukrainian institutions?
The longstanding and fruitful cooperation with Ukrainian scientists and organizations will continue unabated - as well as it can under the present circumstances.
What happens with all research and teaching collaborations with Russia and Belarus?
All research and teaching collaborations with Russia and Belarus will be frozen with immediate effect. This means that existing collaborations will cease until further notice and that no new collaborations may be initiated. This means, among other things, that no more financial transactions will be carried out and no more data and knowledge can be exchanged. Also, no more joint events will take place.
We realize that this is a drastic measure, which is particularly undesirable in a safe world where knowledge can be shared openly. It goes against the principles of open science. However, the...
Where can I go with questions about my residence permit?

Where to go with questions and concerns?
If you are a student and would like someone to talk to about your concerns, please contact the academic advisor for your program. Together you can look at what help or guidance is needed. For students there is also our wellbeing page in the education guide. If you are an employee, it is best to contact your HR advisor. Everyone can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly with specific or general questions.
We are working to create a place to come together, share stories and support each other. We are doing this together with TINT and FISO, among others. As soon as more is known about...
