If you have any sort of personal circumstances you can report them to the study advisor or student psychologists. You can reach your study advisor by emailing them and the student psycholoist through the Student Affairs Coaching & Counselling (SACC) in the Vrijhof (room 311). You can also email sacc@utwente.nl. For more information about SACC also feel free to visit www.utwente.nl/sacc.

Mental well-being

To offer help and support in difficult times, an overview of all UT initiatives is on the Wellbeing page. Need help but don't know where to turn? Contact Student Affairs Coaching & Counselling and they will help you find a suitable form of support!

Sexual violence

Sexual violence means all sexual acts that a person is forced to perform, undergo or witness. Sexual violence or harassment is most common in the student age group. If you are/were a victim of sexual violence (sexual assault, rape) feel free to seek help or support because it is there. We know it takes real courage to take this step and hope this information will help you.

Confidential counsellors

In cases of undesirable behaviour or unequal treatment, the confidential counsellor acts independently of the UT and acts as a sounding board and mediator and also has a duty of confidentiality in this regard. The confidant does not judge or take decisions. The confidant can advise you or mediate between the conflicting parties, with or without the help of a third party.

Student psychologists

Student psychologists offer short-term, solution-oriented help with study problems and/or personal problems. You can come to them if, for example, you suffer from performance anxiety or procrastination, as well as sadness, anxiety, insecurity or family problems. All students at the University of Twente can use the services of the student psychologist. No referral is needed and it is free of charge. 

Study Advisor


It is always possible to see the student advisers at GZW or MS&T. You can make an appointment via the site. More information on what study advisers are available for can be found under the heading study advisers.
