This year the packing list will not be required, the reason is that the introduction will take place at the campus and all necessary items will be provided by the organisation.
What to bring:
- Sleeping bag, pillow and air mattress: During the introduction you will sleep in a big tent. Although this will be a heated accommodation, you will need a sleeping bag, pillow and something to sleep on, like an air mattress because the floor is not a good option.
- Medication: Please do not forget your medication if you need to take them.
- Money : Please make sure you have enough money with you. It is also possible to pay by card at all the locations.
- Insurance papers: The Introduction Committee will make sure to organize the Introduction Week as safely as possible. However, you can never be too careful, so take your insurance papers with you.
- Sport clothes and swim suits: There will be different (water) activities at our sports day. For this day you will need sports clothes and/or a swim suit. On Friday there will be a swimming pool party (not part of the’ program, but free to join for everyone); swimsuits will be mandatory at this party.
- Passport/identification: In the Netherlands it is obliged by law that you can identify yourself at any given moment. Therefor you will need to take your identification with you everywhere you go.

Did you already fill in the form and did not touched the button of an extra shirt, than mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only at the theme party you may wear your own themed accessories. Normally we have beautiful weather during the introduction week, unfortunately we can’t predict the weather yet. So it would be wise to bring short and long clothing with you.
