Additional Program Information
Delft University of Technology provides a variety of living options both on- and off-campus. TU-Delft entered into an alliance with DUWO, an independent housing corporation in the west of the Netherlands which specializes in student accommodations. You can also find accommodations yourself, but be aware that it is difficult to find open housing in Delft. Delft is a municipality in the southern Netherlands, near the Hague. Delft has a population of 100,000 and is known for its historic downtown.
You will pay your normal tuition rate at Indiana University through your bursar account (no tuition will be paid to Tu-Delft). You will be responsible for covering your own overseas expenses including airfare, food, and housing. Roughly $1,200 dollars a month should cover food, housing, fun, study materials, and incidentals. Your biggest variable will be housing.
