[April Fools] New UT rules considering online drinks »

The University of Twente seems to have found out about study associations finding ways to avoid the alcohol convenant.

Since the University buildings have closed, associations have tried alternatives to have their weekly drinks online. However, research found out that 60-70% of the online drink attendees live on campus, resulting in the activity to be considered on campus following UT rules. In addition, people are serving drinks themselves while being far from sober, besides not having a valid IVA certificate. The UT considers this as violation of the alcohol convenant, and has therefore decided not to allow any more alcoholic beverages during online drinks via Discord, Google Meet, Skype and other online video platforms.

Unfortunately, Inter-Actief sees no other option than to follow these new rules set by the University. We will therefore no longer allow beer or other alcoholic beverages during our online drinks, but we will leave the online Abscint on the Inter-Actief Discord server open to have a chat while enjoying a non-alcoholic beer or soda. Naturally, we hope that the UT buildings will be opened again soon, so we can finally go back to our beloved Abscint to have a real, non-virtual beer!

Stay safe, and stay home!

Kevin, Reinier, Gerrit-Willem, Denise, Patrick and Danique.

Updates regarding Corona #2 »

We would like to give you an update regarding all the measures taken by Inter-Actief against the coronavirus (COVID-19)

In consequence of the press conference about the extra measures against the COVID-19 virus, as given by Minister Bruins of Medical Care and Sports and Minister Slob of Primary and Secondary Education and Media, we decided to extend the previously shared measures concerning Inter-Actief until the 6th of April.

Closure extended

All university buildings with the exception of Spiegel will be closed until the 6th of April. This also means that your building authorization that you may have obtained via Inter-Actief as an active member, has been blocked. The Spiegel is available for studying to those who are not in a position to study at home.

By extension, this measure means that all activities until the 6th of April will be cancelled in the same manner as the previously cancelled activities, and that the Inter-Actief room will also be closed until the 6th of April.

Study advisors

We understand that you might have many questions regarding your educational programme. Therefore, we would like to remind you that the study advisors Ellen, Rianne and Lilian are still available during the closure of university facilities. If you have any questions regarding education, they are there to answer your questions. You can make an appointment at https://ewi.planner.utwente.nl/.


As some of you may already know, Inter-Actief has its very own Discord server. Although originally hosted primarily for gaming, its use has now been expanded into a platform for the entire association. On the server you can meet up in the digital association room, have a drink, or work in one of the digital project rooms. The server can be found here.

Other Notes

We would also like to stress that you should follow all the measures and advice given by the government and the RIVM. Only then will we be able to resume a normal lifestyle in the Netherlands as soon as possible.

For future updates, we would like to refer you to the news-page on the website.

An email will be sent to all our members when there are big changes in the current measures. Until then, we will keep the news-page of Inter-Actief as updated as possible with the latest information.

Take care of yourselves, consider everything you do twice, and we hope to welcome you again as soon as possible in the Inter-Actief room!

Kind regards,

Kevin, Reinier, Gerrit-Willem, Denise, Patrick & Danique

Updates regarding Corona »

We would like to inform you about the measures Inter- Actief is taking in accordance with the guidelines set by the UT and RIVM regarding the corona virus (COVID-19).

Inter-Actief room

Today the decision has been made that all educational buildings at the University of Twente will be closed until the 23rd of March. This means that in the upcoming week, the University is not available for studying or project meetings. No educational activities will be held, including examination, lectures (both physical and digital), and tutorial sessions. In accordance with the UT, the Inter-Actief association room will be closed until the 23rd of March. During this time the board will be accessible for questions via e-mail at board@inter-actief.net. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Upcoming activities cancelled

All activities starting from now until the end of March will be cancelled. If you have signed up for any activities you will be automatically signed out and you will not have to worry about paying for these activities. For activities on a later date we are still unsure on whether they will continue. As soon as we know more information regarding this we will communicate this to all our members.

What happens next?

The University has made the decision to halt educational activities for next week. The reason for this is to adapt the education to these new circumstances. Study advisers are still available. Meetings will be held via phone and you can still schedule meetings via the online planner. The University is looking into possible consequences the closure might have for the study progress of our students (e.g. concerning BSA). As of right now, there is no need to worry about these kinds of issues.

More information regarding the measures the UT is taking can be found on the UT corona page here. As soon as new information arises that has impact on our activities and/or members we will send out another email. If you have any questions regarding how Inter-Actief is reacting to these measures and to new information you can contact the board.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us!

Kind regards, Kevin, Reinier, Gerrit-Willem, Denise, Patrick & Danique

Every year several heros rise to form the new board of Inter-Actief. Are you ready?

Like every year, Inter-Actief is searching for a new board that will take on the daily operations and steer the association in the academic year of 2020/2021. With more than 1200 members and 200 volunteers, this is quite the task.

Will you...

...lead your team effectively and represent the association towards hundreds of students?

...take on the correspondance and reporting for the entire association?

...manage hundreds of thousands of euros?

...motivate a new class for activism and guarantee the continuity of the association?

...maintain more than fifty partnerships with companies and single-handedly finance the association?

...be the voice of our students regarding the quality of our education?

A full-time board year at Inter-Actief is an informative experience. You will encounter various challenges and project your vision on the association. Furthermore, a board year is full of amazing activities and you will learn countless of new people. Will you grab this opportunity?

Send a mail to the board before next Sunday, the 15th of March, in which you indicate your interest. You will then be invited for an interview. Are you unsure whether a board year at Inter-Actief would fit you? Approach one of the board members in the association room, or send an email!

Temporary unavailability of the association room »

During the week of the 23rd of March, the Inter-Actief room will be closed due to the installation of a new airconditioning system.

You will still be able to get tea/coffee/chocolatemilk at the machines on the balcony. In this week, the Inter-Actief board will continue their daily routine in the Scintilla association room, right next to the Inter-Actief room. This means that the board will be available each workday from 09:00 to 16:00.

The week before, the week of the 16th of March, the board of Scintilla will reside in the Inter-Actief room due to construction work in their room. Just like the board of Inter-Actief, the Scintilla board will have priority over the work stations.
