TINT Eindhoven offers students (BSc, MSc, PhD, and PDEng) the opportunity to deal with life issues related to philosophy of life, meaning, spirituality (parts of being a complete human) and culture (learning from each other’s background).
To achieve our goals, TINT annually compiles a program of life coaching, events and workshops. Life coaching by means of individual conversations is an essential way in which all students are supported from the past in gaining insight into their life questions, in dealing with meaning, and in dealing with their own, sometimes difficult, situation.
The events are organized by TINT itself or together with others and form the connection between working on personal development on one hand and community building on the other. During workshops, similar themes are worked on in a more methodical way and in groups.
For the TU/e community, TINT also sets itself the goal of strengthening community development on campus by connecting people and groups around personal themes regarding student life. TINT pays special attention to connecting with international students and wants to reduce the chance that (especially international) students won’t fit within any network. In addition, TINT contributes to community formation by connecting and stimulating cooperation between organizations that work in the field of personal development, meaning, religion and multicultural community. TINT works from a multi-religious and multi-cultural perspective.
In addition to these activities, TINT coordinates the umbrella for philosophical and religious student associations: Credo. In coordinating Credo, TINT encourages the meeting, exchange and cooperation between students with different philosophical and religious backgrounds.
In the past year I got to know the TINT organization and its employees better. A passionate organization within the TU Eindhoven within which students are given the space to further develop themselves on a personal level and to establish contact with each other. How important this is for students is shown over and over again, but even more so in this strange period. How do you maintain contact with each other? How do you find balance between mostly online education and social life in a student city? Many students with questions also seek support in this. Support that can be found via TINT. I am happy with the warm contact I have built up with Arantja Rosalina and Margit van Tuijl and my place as a coach on their website.

Inspiration and Contemplation
TINT provides a welcoming meeting place for (international) students of the TU/e, Fontys, and the Design Academy. We offer open-minded people an opportunity to connect and get inspired by each other. Come meet us in one of our Discussion Nights, Clinics, Eat & Meet and movie nights!
Through a variety of personal development workshops and trainings, TINT teaches the art of living to help people achieve personal growth and help people find their place and way in the world. We provide clinics such as Balancing your study Time, Time Management and Cultural Awareness.
TINT is part of the ever growing campus community. Almost all our events are collaborations with different organisations at the TU. We are also expanding our connections with the city and organise off-campus events as well.
All our events are made possible by the work of great volunteers. We are always looking for people who love to cook, decorate, make music etc. All helping hands are welcome.
