Notice of closure

Following university and government regulations, S.A. Astatine is currently closed until (at least) September 1 2020.

Servers offline

Because Astatine is moving to the Carré building, our servers will be temporarily offline. This means that you won’t be able to send or receive mail on your Astatine account, access the webapps or any of the other external websites. Astatine’s homepage will still be available (as you can see).
The downtime will be on Wednesday July 1, from 9:30 until 12:00.

S.A. Astatine is the study association for Advanced Technology and Nanotechnology students at the University of Twente. We are an international, non-profit association that support the students (and staff) of Advanced Technology and Nanotechnology in providing a community, creating opportunities for personal development, and evaluating the curriculum.  This is done by the means of a combination of both educational and extracurricular activities.

Have a look around!
