Housing for International Students

Different housing applies for students of Erasmus University College (EUC) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS).

First things first: student housing in the Netherlands is not arranged for you by the university; it is your own responsibility. We know this can be a surprise and a struggle for some of you. There are reserved spots for about 25% of our yearly incoming internationals. Most arrange housing directly with landlords via the private market. We strongly advise you to start looking at least three months before arrival to avoid stress and disappointment, while our housing team works hard to make it easier for you.

While Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) isn't able to assist all students in finding a house, we do want to help you in the best way possible by offering you multiple tips and tricks
