Dear Ibn’er, 

Are you experiencing some trouble and don’t know where to go or who to talk to? Do you need a listening ear about anything concerning university or student life in general? You can reach out to us at any given time, Jildou (Master student) and Timothy (2nd-year Spatial Planning & Design), your confidential counsellors of Ibn Battuta this year. As both Dutch and international students, we will be happy to help you as best as we possibly can with any issues. This is of course all confidential! 

Feel free to reach out to us via phone, email (, or of course approach us in person, if you see us wandering around Zernike.


Jildou Gerritsen and Timothy Laukens
