Student Wellbeing Week

Student Wellbeing Week

Erasmus University Rotterdam cares about students and their wellbeing. It is for a good reason that student wellbeing is one of the priorities of EUR Strategy 2024.
In this period of their lives, students have a lot to deal with. We want to let them know that they are not alone. To boost their wellbeing, we have organised the Student Wellbeing Week, as part of the Student Wellbeing Program, from November 1st to 6th. Students could follow the program by logging in to MyEUR.

Program Wellbeing Week

  • On Monday evening, our Rector Magnificus Rutger Engels opened the national, unique interactive theater show Time Out: an unpolished reflection of the current reality for students.
  • Every day, students could watch online webinars, including experts on mental resilience, stress, focus, following your own path, and much more. After every webinar, students could discuss with the expert about the topics (live Q&A via Zoom).
  • Spread over the week, there were various student initiatives, such as cooking for your mental health (a collaboration between the Living Room and Erasmus Food lab) and yoga (Living Room). Students can keep up to date with all events via the smartphone app of Uni-life, with whom the Student Wellbeing Program collaborates.

And last but not least; Personal Online Coaching, provided by Mentaal Beter, has been launched via the Are you Ok out there? platformAt the same time, we informed students about the offer of the Student Support team, consisting of student psychologists and counselors. In short, there was something for everyone.
