Area vision Campus South

Campus South’s area vision is currently being developed. The area will continue to be developed into a vibrant environment with new facilities for education and research, where interaction and co-operation are encouraged. This includes co-operation within TU Delft and cross-pollination with the various companies on campus. Because the best innovations arise from working together.

Area layout
What exactly will be in the area and where will it all be located? This will be completed step-by-step over the coming years. The designers will work with the future users to create a good layout.

The plan currently looks as follows and will be added to in the coming years.

  • Physics: a building for the departments of the faculty of Applied Sciencescurrently housed in building 22 on Lorentzweg. These departments will move to the new Physics building. The most suitable location for this is the current location of the Logistics & Environment department because it has the most low-vibration grounds in the area. This is important for the vibration-sensitive research carried out at Applied Sciences.
  • The faculty of Logistics & Environment will be housed in a new building a bit further along in this area.
  • A building for QuTech, the institute of TU Delft and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) for the development of quantum technology.
  • The complete layout will be refined further in the near future and the exact locations of the buildings will then become known. The architects are still working on the appearance of the buildings in terms of shape, materials and height.

No campus would be complete without good catering and pleasant places to study and relax. Future catering facilities will be spread across various locations. There will also be plenty of space to walk around, kick a ball or even play Frisbee with friends. All this will be set amongst a natural environment with different types of plants for a rich biodiversity.

The basic principles for shaping the area are set out in an urban development design plan. This is a drawing that includes components such as building plots, roads, water, greenery and logistics routes. Good and safe accessibility is also important for the thousands of students, teachers and staff. This includes proper accessibility by public transport, bicycle and car, which naturally includes sufficient bike storage and parking spaces.
All of this is taken into account when colouring in the area’s ‘canvas’. TU Delft is working on this along with the municipality of Delft and the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam/The Hague (MRDH).

TU Delft is working to make its campus more sustainable with the aim of achieving a CO2-neutral, circular and climate-adaptive campus by 2030. TU Delft Campus South is the perfect place to give form to sustainability on the design table. This includes building with used materials, insulation based on natural materials, energy-neutral and energy-producing buildings, and energy-efficient systems. The grounds will also be designed with sustainability in mind. This includes, for example, innovative paving or inventions that scientists would like to test on the campus, such as a practical assignment for water storage, soil research or a wear test with asphalt.
