The Faculty of Science is located in the Huygens building. The iconic green building on the campus of the Radboud University is the home to the beta faculty and its studies, associations, research departments and other connected institutes. The Huygens building consists of four wings which are connected to each other by one main street and is meant as a flexible learning-, study- and  research environment to stimulate the integration and contact between students and employees.

Study associations Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science also offers other betastudies next to Biology. Similar to the study Biology every study has its own study association dedicated to their students and the quality of their study. The Huygens Building houses five of the seven different beta assocations: BeeVee (Biology), DESDA (Mathematics), Leonardo da Vinci (Natural Sciences and Science), Marie Curie (Physics and Astronomy) and Sigma (Molecular Sciences cluster). The sixth and seventh associations are CognAC (Artificial Intelligence), housed in the Spinoza building on the Radboud campus, and Thalia (Computer Science and Information Science), housed in Mercator 1 on the Radboud campus.


What is Olympus?
Olympus is the umbrella association of the study associations of the faculty of science of the Radboud University in Nijmegen. They represent the interests of our members and those of the students from the faculty. Besides that Olympus brings students from different studies closer together with several different activities.

For the students Olympus is most recognisable as the people that run the student canteens. These canteens are visited daily by two to three hundred students, using them to relax, lunch or study.

The Olympus board of this year (2019-2020) consists of:

  • Mathijs van Kilsdonk (Leonardo), Chairman
  • Jenneke Vos (Leonardo), Secretary
  • Jan van Bommel (Thalia) Treasurer
  • Barend Mijzen (BeeVee) Chief of Faculty Affairs
  • Renske Baten (CognAC) Chief of Activities
  • Bibian Bennink (CognAC) General Board Member

Barend Mijzen is the representative of BeeVee within Olympus this year. A representative of Olympus has contact with the board and the committees of BeeVee on a regular basis. This keeps everyone up to date with each others business.

The different committees of Olympus organise a variety of activities throughout the year.

If you are interested in joining one of the committee, send them an email!

The FSC stands for Faculty Student Council. The FSC deals with all policies that concern students of the faculty. They represent the interests of the students to ensure the quality of education and to keep the education as student friendly as possible.

The FSC of the Faculty of Science of this year (2018-2019) consists of:

Nienke Wessel          Chairman
Sabine Langens        Vice Chairman
Anne Verkerk            Secretary
Timo Maarse             Treasurer
Roderik Krebbers      Commissioner educational affairs 

Stan Franssen will act as assessor.

What does the FSC do for you?
The FSC focuses on faculty policy. This can vary from apparently small matters such as input into how many cleaning personnel is required, to large subjects such as the Education and Examination Regulations (EERs) which is established annually.

There are various ways for the FSC to participate in and decide upon matters concerning policy. For example, it can advise the Faculty Board (consultation rights), it often has a vote on various subjects (right of consent) and can even place items it deems important onto the agenda of a joint meeting.

On the website of the FSC you can learn everything there is to know about the FSC. Who we are, where we are, what we do, and what developments are of interest to you: the student. These and other topics can be found on the website. Also several documents and notes which provide useful information can be found there.

If you experience any issues or have any queries, please contact us by email: fsr@science.ru.nl
