Erasmus University College (EUC) provides students with guaranteed housing in the city centre, at the LUCIA residence, during their first year of studies. Students are expected to live together as this provides an excellent opportunity to get to know each other well and to build solid friendships, however this requirement can be waived upon request. Living together can make it easier to plan group meetings and generally enhances the overall academic community and is particularly useful for international students those new to Rotterdam.
During your second and third years of studies at EUC you will have to make your own arrangements for your housing. Finding housing in Rotterdam can be difficult but both EUC’s Student Life Officer and the Erasmus University College Student Association (EUCSA) can provide guidance and support with this.
