Located between The Hague and Rotterdam, Delft is a small city with around 100,000 inhabitants, a rich historical background and considerable charm. The city boasts numerous cafés and pavement restaurants alongside the canals and on the squares, original shops, affordable eateries and good cinemas, all within walking distance of each other. You will find the city buzzing with activities such as music festivals and street theatre from spring until autumn. All this activity in the city center is surrounded by neighbourhoods with schools, childcare, sports clubs and services geared towards (young) families.
TU Delft recognises the importance of having a good work-life balance. We offer flexible working hours, the possibility to work part-time, partially paid parental leave, and an International Children's Centre on campus providing child care and an international primary school.
