At the moment, with almost 30 members, the STORES is the largest committee within Scintilla. The STORES is a small shop entirely run by students. Our goal is to offer cheap electronics and study needs. The STORES is located in the Edu-cafe in the Zilverling and is open every weekday 12:30h - 13:30h.
On this page you will find information on the various services we offer. Do you have a question? Send us an e-mail, but even better, just visit our shop for a personal advice.

If you are a member of study association Scintilla, you can order your study books using the link in the My Scintilla menu. Scintilla will send you an e-mail to remind you of this fact every quartile. Since 2013, the books will be delivered to your own home by post.
We offer a wide selection of components ranging from resistors and capacitors to cables and smd.
We also sell second hand electronics. During opening hours you will find a cart outside the STORES, with lots of electronics on it. If you would like to buy something, take it to the counter and start haggling!
Note: items from the cart are sold without any warranty!
Have you got any old electronic device you think someone could use? Bring it to the STORES. Our employees will check if it is of any use and, if so, put it on the cart.
