During the Eurekaweek there are 3 places where you can stay overnight:
- at one of the houses of the student associations
- at your home/student house
- at the University campus (Woudestein)
Staying at one of the houses of the student associations
During the Eurekaweek, it is possible to stay at one of the houses of the student associations. If you choose this option, you'll stay with one of the members of this association. For you, this is an ideal opportunity to see what a genuine Dutch student house looks like an have a closer view at the lifestyle of a typical student. Register on this site.
Also, you can stay with one of the members of rowing club Skadi, via this site.
Please note that:
- If you stay the night at one of the student associations, there's no obligation to become a member
- If you choose to stay at one of the student associations, please do not apply for an overnight accomodation on the campus!
Sleeping at your home/student house
Of course, you are always free to sleep at home if you prefer this. Do take into account that the student associations offer an evening program that starts around 10:00 pm. If your home is not in Rotterdam, and you don’t want to miss out on the parties, it is better if you'll sleep on the campus or at another place in Rotterdam.
Overnight stays at campus Woudestein at EUR
Due to the intensity of the day, evening and night programme, we would highly recommend you to sleep in Rotterdam. If you do not already have a place to stay, the Eurekaweek Committee offers accommodation (including breakfast) at the sports center, situated on campus.
Please note: during the day, the sports center will be used for sports activities. Therefore the center has to be cleared for these activities in the morning. This means that on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, there will be a wake-up call at 9:00 am. On Thursday and Friday, the wake-up call will be at 10:00 am.
Think carefully if you want to stay overnight at the Erasmus University before you buy a ticket. If you change your mind after you bought a ticket, you’ll have to inform us before the 1st of August in order to get the money for overnight accommodation refunded. Refundments will take place after the Eurekaweek, so it will take some time before the money is transferred back to your bank account.
