Have you ended your studies? Unsubscribe correctly

Have you completed your studies? Or do you just want to cancel your subscription to FMF? Then contact the secretary at secretary@fmf.nl and indicate your full name while using the subject line "Ending membership" to initiate the process. The cancellation is finalized only when you receive a confirmation from the secretary. If you do not receive it after two weeks, then send a reminder, sometimes the email accidentally ends up in our spam folder or just gets missed.

Message from Comcie

Hello everyone! We wanted to inform you all about the new public wiki that we made. On this wiki, you should be able to find all the information that you need to set up and use the technologies of the FMF such as email, Samba, etc. We made this because we felt like the information was a bit tough to find sometimes.

Studystore discontinuation

Around two weeks ago, Studystore made an announcement regarding the discontinuation of all its operations. As a result, there is a possibility that your order may have been canceled. In this case, you will be receiving a refund. They expected to respect all their financial obligations by the beginning of the summer. You can contact them at info@studystore.nl. Meanwhile, we are actively seeking a new provider and are optimistic about having everything up and running before the commencement of block 2B.

You can use one of the lines we came up with, or write your own to impress your crush with your creativity and flirting skills! Drop the note in the box when you're done and your paramour will be able to find it in the room on Valentine's Day. We hope you have a sweet time sweet-talking your precious person!
