The VSV bookstore

In order to study your courses the lecturers require or recommend you to have certain literature. The Society of Aerospace Engineering Students – VSV ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ – is in close contact with the lecturers about what literature you need, and offers these books at the lowest prices. If you are unsure about which books are required, please consult the academic course guide on https://studiegids.tudelft.nl/ .

We do not make any profit off the booksale, but want to provide you with the best study material possible at the most cheap and accessible way possible. The VSV bookstore is located on the first floor of the highrise of the faculty building next to the VSV board room. The bookstore is open daily at the following times:
10.30 - 10.45
12.30 - 13.45
15.30 - 15.45

Sometimes the bookstore will be closed at one of these timeslots due to unavailability of the board. For detailed bookstore opening hours per week, always check the bottom of the homepage.

The bookstore accepts debit cards and Mastercard credit cards, no cash.

If you have any questions about the services we offer, don’t hesitate to contact the VSV by sending an email or walking by our board room.

The types of membership are stated below, the membership fee is one time only and applies to the full duration of your study at the faculty of Aerospace Engineering.

Registering as member of the VSV can be done here: https://vsv.tudelft.nl/vsvinschrijving. Make sure you use the right Student number (the seven digit number starting with a 4), or your registration will not follow through.

You will be asked to fill in bank account details. If you do this, we will send you a direct debit (Dutch: incasso) to subtract the amount from your account later this fall. However, when buying the freshmen book package, we will include the membership fee in the package price so it is immediately paid and we will not have to ask to subtract the amount from your bank account, it is easier for our administration. Finally it is also an option to pay for your membership physically at the bookstore. We will always make sure you will not pay your membership twice.
