As a student in Rotterdam, there are numerous discounts to benefit from. Many theatres have interesting discounts for students, and there are several other ways you can benefit from being a student too. Below you can find an overview:
The 'Rotterdampas' is a card which enables you to do a lot of fun things in Rotterdam for free or with a discount. As a student, you can get your Rotterdampas for €12,50 instead of €60,-. With the Rotterdampas, you can join a tour on the Spido, or visit the Euromast and all of the museums free of charge. But you can also visit Blijdorp zoo with a discount, go to the cinema or to Duinrell for free (1x). The card comes with a booklet and coupons you can use, as well as the Rotterdampas Magazine, in which you can find all the information you need about the card.

Theater Rotterdam Schouwburg
Students receive discounts for all regular performances in Theater Rotterdam Schouwburg by showing their EUR student pass. Tickets will cost you €8 or €11 (depending on the hall) and for some (high-profile) performances you may have to pay €17. Most of the plays in Theater Rotterdam Schouwburg are in Dutch, but they do also offer a lot of dance and opera shows.
At the Luxor Theater, students are offered a 50% discount on all shows, provided you buy the ticket within one hour before the show starts (for example, if the show starts at 8 p.m., the tickets online become available after 7 p.m.) You'll have to show your EUR student pass at the box office and you can only buy a ticket if the show is not sold out; moreover, there is a limit of one ticket per person.
Every student can receive a €1,50 discount at LantarenVenster by showing an EUR student pass. The discount is valid for films as well as concerts.
Nederlands Fotomuseum (Dutch Photo Museum)
EUR students can visit the Nederlands Fotomuseum at a 50% discount. For €4,50 you can visit the current exhibitions. But it's also possible to listen to the stories behind the pictures, 'surf' through the digital collection consisting of more than 100.000 photos, watch short films from photographers and take a look around in the extensive library.
If you are 26 or younger or you have a CJP card, you can attend most of the concerts of de Doelen and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra for just € 10. Check below websites to see whether the young persons’ rate applies for the concert you would like to visit. When coming to the concert don’t forget to bring your CJP card or identity document with you. You may be asked to show this when your ticket is checked.
