Rotterdam has a number of different student associations. These associations are somewhat comparable to fraternities and sororities. These associations all have their own personality and identity and if you decide to become a member you can meet many different people of different ages, studies and backgrounds. The RKVV (Rotterdamse Kamer van Verenigingen, Rotterdam Chamber of Associations) is the link between the associations and the university. Seven associations joined the RKVV. Every association has her own unique view on student life. More information about the associations can be found here.
