MARSS 2024 will be held on the main campus of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), located in Delft, the Netherlands. Technische Universiteit Delft is the oldest and largest Dutch public technical university. Established in 1842 as a royal academy in the old town center, TU Delft became a polytechnic school in 1864 and an institute of technology in 1905, assuming its current name in 1986. With eight faculties and numerous research institutes, TU Delft has more than 27,000 students and 6,600 employees (teaching, research, support and management staff). As of 2022 it was ranked by QS World University Rankings among the top 10 engineering and technology universities in the world.

The conference will be held in the Aula Congrescentrum of the TU Delft campus (building 20, Mekelweg 5). Built in 1966 in the Brutalist architectural style by two alumni of the university, and located just beside the ground-integrated TU Delft library, the Aula is the main stage for campus events, particularly including all doctoral graduation ceremonies in the Senaatszaal. The Aula features a magnificent 1000-seat Auditorium, multiple 200-seat lecture rooms, several presentation rooms, and a spacious foyer for receptions and exhibitions.
