General promotion

News about the elections will be published on the student pages of the Tilburg University website. Also on Blackboard there will be a link during the elections. In Univers a number of advertisements will be placed directing people's attention towards the elections (this is done only if the dates of the university’s periodical coincide with important election events).

You can also contribute to the general promotion yourself by:

Your own promotional material

Parties (also when they consist of only one candidate) may order leaflets and flyers to be printed at the University Printing Office.

Please take note of the technical specifications required for using these facilities. For more information on these specifications, please contact the Printing Office.

The costs of these services will either be deducted from the amount that the arrangement concerning propaganda costs has reserved for you, or charged to you directly (also see 5).

Implementation directive House rules during participation council's elections (link to PDF).

On February 26, 2008 the Executive Board of Tilburg University has installed a new directive with regard to promotional activities during University elections. This directive has been updated in 2010. Please read it carefully.

Arrangement propaganda costs

Parties (also parties of only 1 candidate) that managed to win one or more seats in the previous election will automatically be eligible for campaign subsidies. New parties (including parties with only 1 candidate) that win one or more seats during this election will also be eligible for campaign subsidies. New parties that fail to win any seats will not be eligible for funding. All payments will take place after the elections. This means you will first need to cover the costs yourself.

This is the amount of subsidy available for a party that has nominated candidates for:

  • The University Council: Each party to a maximum of 700 Euro.
  • The Faculty Council / Service Council Division Committees: each party to a maximum of 300 Euro.
  • More than one Council: The amounts add up to a maximum of 1000 Euro.

The aforementioned facilities and subsidies are only applicable to the 2023 university elections. Immediately after the elections, the costs can be claimed at the electoral office, stembureau@tilburguniversity.edu. All claims must be accompanied by invoices, accounts, etc. The claims must be issued no later than December 31, 2023.
