What is Purple?
Purple takes place on August 22 to 26, 2022
The new academic year will soon be upon us. Once again we’ll be organising the Purple introductionweek for the new students.
Monday 22 August and Tuesday 23 August are reserved for study related activities. Some focus on teambuilding and conviviality, whilst others opt for a programme that primarily focuses on the study already, with guest lectures and practical assignments. On Wednesday 24 August new students in Eindhoven and Tilburg will participate in a city programme from 12 AM to 5 PM. Afterwards, there is a horecaparty organised on one of the squares from 5 PM to 11 PM. And to end this day there is a pubtour that takes place from 11 AM to 1 AM.
The week’s grand finale event will take place on Thursday 25 August when all the intro kids, dads and moms from Eindhoven, Tilburg,’s-Hertogenbosch, Sittard, Veghel and Utrecht can enjoy the Purple Festival from 2 PM to 11 PM in Spoorzone, Tilburg.

Announcement about trains Tilburg, Eindhoven and Den Bosch.
Due to maintenance work, there will be no intercity trains and local trains for 17 days in August on the Den Bosch-Eindhoven and Eindhoven-Tilburg routes (besides via Boxtel). There will be bustransport from 9 to 26 August arranged by NS. ProRail expected that due to the good coordination with NS and the municipality of Eindhoven, this will have no impact on the replaced bus transport for train passengers. Check the latest updates via NS.
