Housing for International Students

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. To help you get started, we organized a webinar on the Rotterdam housing market that you can review online.

If you have not arranged residence yet, we strongly advise you to start looking for accommodation as soon as possible to avoid stress and disappointment.

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