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 started organising the Student Wellbeing Week, as part of the Student Wellbeing Program, every year.
Student Wellbeing Festival
November 8th to 19th, 2021
From November 8 until November 19 2021, the Student Wellbeing Festival will take place, this time live on campus! It's all about having fun, relaxing, meeting other students and your personal development and wellbeing, including mental, physical, and social wellbeing. Besides all the activities, you can visit the Pop-Up Living Room and Information center at the Erasmus Plaza every day, where you can relax and meet each other in the relax-room, or get information. There is even an escape room!
Past Wellbeing Weeks
May 31st to June 11th, 2021
We were excited to announce the last student wellbeing event before the summer holidays: (Re)igniting Wellbeing.
The focus of the event was on rediscovering and re-evaluating what makes us feel good. The focus was also on involving everyone in an open discussion and on delving deeper into all aspects of well-being and mental health. Students could participate in a live panel discussion with renowned experts on topics such as resilience, stress, relationships, social media use and the economics of well-being. They could also ask them all your questions about the future after the pandemic. On offer was also live meditation sessions for the whole two weeks, outdoor activities and even an online ecstatic dance session!

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? platform. At 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.
