Employee Association Unifriends
Unifriends is the employee association of the university and has over 1,000 members. Unifriends already exists for 50 years.
Do you have a colleague (member employee association) who qualifies for a gift?
The employee association strives to do this in the best possible way:
- Employment anniversary
- Long-term illness
More than three weeks
The board notices that this is very much appreciated, because it is precisely these little attentions that illustrate, among other things, what the employee association wants to achieve, namely 'More human attention for each other'!
For this we do need your help in the form of, for example, sending a card (no copy), or a message from a colleague in case of long-term illness (longer than three weeks) or in case of direct hospitalization.
Sign up your colleague for an attention by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

City trip Istanbul
We are going on a 5 day (4 nights) city trip to Istanbul with the employee association this year! Dive into this mystical city that is the only one in the world that spans 2 continents. So you stand at a colorful spice bazaar and marvel at former palaces of the influential sultans. Only to take a boat ride on the Bosporus a little later and then enjoy shopping. As you can see, this fascinating metropolis has a lot to offer.
