Our first University Council took place on Friday the 7th of October! For us, as the new party, this was our first official University Council. Several important issues were discussed, like the temporary housing Koopmans, Health & Environment Annual Plan 2016, the exchange filter and 4 fte extra investments in Student Desk. Furthermore together with Party SAM we handed in a joint initiative regarding a bike repair shop on the campus. You can read here more about these discussed topics.
We are proud to present the full board of Student Participation Association Front (MZV Front):
Chairman – Bo Backbier
Treasurer – Djay Emmers
Secretary – Lars van Bladel
As a part of Student Party Front, MZV Front stands for clarity towards the students regarding the developments within the educational system at Tilburg University. It’s a place where students can go with questions, comments or complaints about the quality of education and the facilities of Tilburg University.
The university starts a 6 month pilot as of September during which Koopmans Building and Montesquieu Building are kept open in the weekends. The new opening times in the weekends are: 13:00 – 22:00 h.

Every year, Tilburg University attracts more international students. In line with Front’s pillar Internationalization, we support this trend. However, the facilities for international students are lacking, especially with regard to the housing accommodations of international students. Because of this, Student Party Front has been in close contact with, among others I*ESN Tilburg and the International Office to solve this problem. Due to the remarks of Student Party Front, housing of international students is on the agenda of this University Council again.
The moment has arrived! We are looking for two enthusiastic students who would like to take up the challenge to launch the Student Participation Association together with Bo Backbier starting from September 2016 and to lead this association for the first year of its existence.
Student Party Front is looking for international (oriented) students who want to take a seat in the International Student Advisory Committee (ISAC) starting from September 1st. Click on ‘read more’ for more information about the committee.

Thanks to both student parties there is now a print computer available in the library. This computer is exclusively for printing purposes. The print computer is located underneath the stairs in the non-silent area. Now you don’t need to search for an available pc when the library is crowded!
After different remarks about the shortage of workplaces on campus from both of the Student Parties Front and SAM, there will be build 143 extra student-workplaces on campus. You can read here where these will be build and how they will look when finished.
