  • Rotterdam is the second largest city of the Netherlands, with over 600,000 citizens, while the population of the greater Rotterdam region is around 1.2 million. This all started when a dam was built in the river ‘Rotte’ in 1270. The city was granted a charter in 1340. In the 15th century, Rotterdam produced perhaps its most famous son: Desiderius Erasmus, one of the founders of Humanism. Erasmus University Rotterdam is named after this philosopher.

    Erasmus University Rotterdam is a home base for around 28.000 students, of which around 5.000 are international students, and every year the numbers are increasing. 

  • Erasmus University Rotterdam can be reached in many ways. Public transport in The Netherlands is well organised: the trams, buses and metro are scheduled to link perfectly. You can travel easily from and to the main airports of The Netherlands (Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Rotterdam/The Hague Airport) by public transport.
