Erasmus University Rotterdam strives for an accessible campus and buildings for all students, employees and visitors.
Accessibility within 1.5 meter campus
Due to the COVID-19 measures, special routes are marked, and other measures are taken on campus, which are not always optimal for people with reduced mobility or other impairment. If following a marked route or taking the stairs is not possible, you are allowed to take another route and use the elevator.

Map campus for disabled people
The EUR has a special site plan, which clearly indicates which routes and entrances can best be used by people with a reduced mobility.
The auditorium and exam rooms on campus Woudestein are accessible by lift. There are adapted toilets in all buildings.
Parking for people with functional impairment
Employees, students and visitors with an EU disabled parking card can park for free on Campus Woudestein. Visitors can read here (Dutch!) how they can park for free. In addition, we offer facilities for employees and students with a (temporary) reduced mobility who do not have an EU disabled parking card. For more information for staff and students click here.
Platform lifts and doors (Mobility Card)
Visitors can use the wheelchair platform lift by calling Campus Security (there is a sign with telephone number and instructions at each lift).
Employees and students with reduced mobility can be authorized to use the wheelchair platform lifts and a number of specific doors that give access to public spaces. Employees can have this authorization placed on their employee card by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Students can apply for a Mobility Card by filling in the 'Mobility Card' form.
Audio Induction loop
The lecture halls CB-1 and CB-5 in Theil Building as well as part of the Aula in Erasmus Building, are equipped with an audio induction loop system for hearing impaired. Read more.
There are no special relaxation rooms on campus. As an alternative, if necessary, use can be made of the so-called lactation rooms or the combined first aid rooms, which primarily have a different function and are therefore not always available. In addition, one can go to the meditation center for a moment of rest. The meditation center is located in G Building (GB-35) and open from Monday to Friday between 7:30 am - 9:30 pm). Outside of Islamic prayer times, it is generally very quiet in the meditation center.
Of course, service dogs are welcome on campus and in all buildings. However, we advise students with a service dog to indicate this to their study advisor, so that she/he can inform the faculty to prevent refusal of access or other misunderstandings.
A limited number of lockers are available on campus Woudestein for students with a (temporary) physical impairment. The lockers are located in the central hall in Sanders Building. If you need a locker and can provide sufficient motivation, you can submit a request together with your study advisor. More information about the application procedure and the accompanying form can be found at myeur.nl.
