Erasmus University College (EUC) requires its students to live in the LUCIA residence in the city centre during their first year of studies. Living together with your fellow students provides an excellent opportunity to get to know each other well and to build solid friendships. Considering studying at EUC requires a lot of group-work, living together also makes it easier to plan these group meetings and generally enhances the overall academic community, which is essential to our philosophy of what makes a great university college. Additionally, living on campus has the benefit of allowing you to immediately focus on your studies considering your housing is already arranged for you.
During your second and third years of studies at EUC you will have to make arrangements yourself for your housing. However, unlike other cities, Rotterdam has plenty to offer in the way of student housing, and both EUC’s Student Life Officer and the Erasmus University College Student Association (EUCSA) are there to provide guidance and support in this matter.
