On 1 September 2017 XIOR student Housing has opened a brand new student housing building right next to the Woudestein campus of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). This 8 floor building has 280 studio apartments, which all have private bathroom and kitchen facilities.

The EUR has agreed on a partnership with Xior, and we have reserved 259 studio apartments exclusively for our first year International Bachelor or Master students. The rooms can only be booked for a fixed rental period of 12 months starting 1 September 2018.

Xior will handle the whole process – from making a room reservation to payments. But certainly EUR is constantly in touch with XIOR ‘behind the scenes’ to make sure the quality and services level remain high.

Registering: when and how?

The registration at XIOR for the academic year opens on:

  • Monday 14 May 2018 at 12 PM CET.

As of this date you can register yourself via the XIOR booking website. At this moment the booking website of XIOR is still 'under construction'. As soon as the website is online we will publish this on our website.

Room rates

The rent for short stay accommodation for international students is in general always higher than rents Dutch students are paying. This is because you are renting fully furnished accommodation, including several extra services, available upon your arrival.

At XIOR you can rent rooms in the 'innercircle' and 'outercircle' (see picture below). The prices range between € 600 and € 750 including services.
