Erasmus University Rotterdam


Erasmus University Rotterdam, or EUR, was founded in 1913 and is a public university located in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

With an endowment of €588 million, the university is comprised of seven faculties with a special focus on four areas; health, wealth, governance, and culture.

In the health field, the Erasmus University Medical Centre is among the best in the Netherlands, with an equally well-known trauma centre. Similarly, the Rotterdam School of Management and the Erasmus School of Economics are leaders in their categories.

For governance, the School of Law and the School of Social and Behavioural Sciences are notable, while the Schools of History, Philosophy, and Culture & Communication are noteworthy.

The institute has five campuses, with the main being Campus Woudestein. Four campuses, including the main one, are located in Rotterdam, while the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) is in The Hague.

Since 2010, GreenEUR, a project to improve sustainability which later merged with Erasmus Involved, has been recognized by the Executive Board of the university.

There is a total of 3,398 working staff. The past and current faculty include two Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences Laureates and several other notable people.


The university has around 29,499 students enrolled across various disciplines and levels.

There are several student activities on campus, including the Student Investment Society B&R Beurs, Erasmus Magazine, Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, Investment Week and Symposium and the Erasmus Debating Society.

Another notable establishment is the STAR, or the Study Association Rotterdam School of Management, a widespread project under the management faculty which also holds the STAR Management Week and the STAR Erasmus Consultancy Project (SEC).

Other than the different levels of study, the institute also has the Erasmus Honours Academy for top students. It has special programmes which are either for one discipline or interdisciplinary; where students discuss important contemporary scientific and societal issues.


Universities in the Netherlands do not provide student housing. Hence it falls on the student to arrange a residence. Also, the university website does provide information on where you may find suitable accommodations.

However, the university reserves housing for around 25% of the yearly international students. They currently have about 1200 rooms through partnerships with four companies; SSH, XIOR, Fizz Cobana and Roomplaza. You can apply for it if you're a first-year international student, non-Dutch and under 30.
