Fully booked!

Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) offers accommodation at the accommodation provider SSH for 550 of our yearly incoming international students. These rooms are reserved for first year international Bachelor, (Pre-)Master or Exchange students for the maximum rental period of 12 months. 

SSH will handle the whole process – from making a room reservation to payments. But certainly EUR is constantly in touch with SSH ‘behind the scenes’ to make sure the quality and services level remain high.

The registration at SSH for the academic year 2024-2025 opens on:

  • Monday 13 May 2024 at 12 PM (noon) CEST

Your registration will be reviewed (see for more information the topic procedure) by Erasmus University Rotterdam. Only after approval you can book an accommodation starting:

Bachelor students:

  • Tuesday 21 May 2024 at 12 PM (noon) CEST

(Pre)Master students & Exchange students:

  • Wednesday 22 May 2024 at 12 PM (noon) CEST

Between 13 May and 21/22 May you cannot book a room yet, but you can orientate on the different rooms that we offer at  


You can register (for free) as of Monday 13 May 2024 at 12 PM (noon) CEST through this website: for the academic year 2024-2025
(Make sure to choose Short stay and not Long stay!)

The registration for Spring 2025 Exchange students will start in November 2024. The exact date will be added to this webpage around September 2024.

After registration at SSH the application for housing is automatically send to the contact persons of the faculty. They will verify (mostly based on first come, first served) your application and determine whether you are authorized to apply for accommodation from the housing offer reserved by the Erasmus University.

As soon as the status of your application is set to "Approved" you can make a reservation at one of the available accommodations.

After approval of your housing request at SSH you will have 3 days to reserve a suitable accommodation. If you don't booked a room within the 3 days, we will withdrawn your approval and changed your status to “not approved”.

If you still want to rent a room through SSH you have to make a new registration and you will be put on a waiting list.

Unfortunately each program at the Erasmus University Rotterdam can only approve a limited number of accounts. If your account is not approved by the faculty or the status of your registration has been changed to “on hold” instead of “for approval”, this means that there are no more rooms available for your program.

Even though you can still see rooms available, the faculty will not be able to approve your registration. The remaining available rooms are meant for other faculties at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. You will receive an email from the faculty when they are no longer able to approve your registration.

The rent for short stay accommodation for international students is in general always higher than rents Dutch students are paying. This is because you are renting fully furnished accommodation, including several extra services, available upon your arrival.

Prices for short stay accommodation range between around € 500,- and € 825,- including services.

  • 1 August 2024 – 30 July 2025 

Exchange (Fall semester):

  • 1 August 2024 – 29 December 2024*
