Dear student,

Covid-19 has been and still is challenging all of us in many ways. Even though we have been trying to provide as many live lessons as possible, a lot is taking place at home. This makes it difficult to get to know your (new) classmates, let alone students from other departments. It may also affect your motivation and inspiration.

That is why we are setting up a platform, to help you to connect to your fellow students, across departments and years.

We now offer three possible options to connect to others:

Buddy Platform

Are you fairly new to the Conservatoire and/or finding it a challenge to make friends, finding fellow students to start a conversation, start a project, form an ensemble, or are simply looking for someone to take a walk with or play a board game? Let us know if we can help to connect you to someone in the community.

If you are interested in participating, please fill in this form (use your @koncon.nl account).

Looking for someone who can help you get acquainted with the Royal Conservatoire and its inner and outer workings? We have multiple options for this. Please first check out our webpages for international or Erasmus students, information about our Student Counselor or safe study environment. If you can’t find the information or sort of help you are looking for, please let us know and we will try to connect you to a student with a bit more experience to help you on your way.

If you are interested in participating, please fill in this form (use your @koncon.nl account).

Senior students who are willing to help out fellow students and by doing so gain experience in supporting someone, make friends or build a future network? Please let us know through buddy@koncon.nl.

Do you need assistance while in isolation, for example to buy some groceries, and are having difficulties arranging this in your network of friends and family, please let us know and we will try to find help.

If you are interested in participating, please fill in this form (use your @koncon.nl account).

Are you willing to help out others, and in doing so providing reassurance in these difficult times, we salute you! Please give us a call via buddy@koncon.nl.

Who am I reaching out to?

The above connections are being made with the help of our Student Stewards who you probably have met at the entrance of our buildings, helping us to stay safe and adhere to the Covid-19 protocols. Under the guidance of our Student Counselor Elke de Roos, they answer your request(s) and help you get connected, with the utmost respect for your privacy.
Do you need to get in contact or want to share new possibilities or any discomfort, please let us know via buddy@koncon.nl. All incoming requests and messages are scanned by our Student Counselor first, to ensure your personal privacy.

*The Royal Conservatoire will only connect students with students (and buddies) to the best of its ability and will not coordinate individual meetings or such.
