Housing for International Students

Student housing in the Netherlands is not arranged for you by the university; it is your own responsibility.

Although Erasmus University Rotterdam has reserved accommodation for about 25% of our yearly incoming international students, most of you will need to secure housing on the private market.

Finding accommodation can be a long and stressful process, as there currently is a housing crisis in the Netherlands, and the rents are often high.  

If you have not managed to secure a reserved room for first year international students at Erasmus University Rotterdam, please click the button Other accommodation providers for further guidance, and watch our housing webinar for useful tips and tricks.

We advise you to act as soon as possible and to be flexible in your criteria, as you are expected to attend on campus classes at the start of the semester.

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