Student organisations

Student organisations are an important part of the student life. They organise a lot of activities in which you can partake. It is an easy way to meet new people. More often than not friendships for life are formed. Do you want to become a member? See the overview below for a list of student organisations of Erasmus University Rotterdam.

  • In Rotterdam you will find numerous student associations and organisations you can join. Many of them are recognized by Erasmus University Rotterdam.

    • The code of conduct contains general agreements about the desired culture as a guideline for all student associations, faculty and study associations, sport associations and other student organisations. This code of conduct is part of the Recognition regulations, whereby associations receive grants and can make use of facilities at Erasmus University.

    • As a student organization you can use various facilities of the university, such as booking available rooms via Room and Facilities Bookings.

    • The student social associations that organize an introduction with a hazing character, are in contact with the HO student association committee. They organise a dialogue with the associations to make them aware of what is and what is not acceptable and encourage them to make the introduction safe. The associations also have a code of conduct for this, which they sign together with EUR, Hogeschool Rotterdam and Hogeschool InHolland.
