It must not have escaped anyone's attention that the academic year started on 4 September. The Dutch Railways ran longer trains and the bike paths to campus were full as ever before the start of the first lectures.
Students also made their way to the new Flux education building, which opened for the first time on Monday. The four education halls with a combined capacity of about 730 students can be scheduled by all faculties. Twenty places are available for self-study. The building can be found behind the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science.
Flux is a temporary, demountable building. All kinds of measures have been taken to make the building as sustainable as possible. For example, there are solar panels on the roof, the furniture is refurbished and the floorboards have been used before.
