Safety and security

By international standards, Holland is a safe country with low levels of violence and street crime. However, Rotterdam is a large city. As in all large cities, it is important to watch your belongings, on and off campus. Erasmus University Rotterdam has on campus security services. Read more about safety at EUR's Woudestein campus.
