Erasmus University Campus

The hub of Erasmus University Rotterdam is our Woudestein campus, a convenient 15-minute bike ride from Rotterdam’s city centre, including the sleek new Rotterdam Centraal train station (where you can also catch the tram or metro to EUR.) Outside of class time, students study in the light-filled new Polak building or at our state-of-the-art university library, grab a coffee at the Erasmus Food Plaza, or attend an event at the theatre or Café in de Smitse. The on-campus sports centre offers fitness, dance, spinning, squash, and tennis among many other classes.
