Student services

Student Counsellors are the central point of contact for an EUC student or staff member who wishes to discuss students’ personal circumstances, functional disabilities and related study skills and planning. Student Counsellors offer confidentiality and refer to other services as required.  A student counsellor is dedicated to each new class of students, which means that you will have the same Student Counsellor throughout your academic career at EUC. Every student has the opportunity to meet with their Student Counsellor by booking an appointment via intranet or attending open hours.

Housing services

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.

Library services

The University Library has an extensive collection of books and journals on every subject that is taught at the Erasmus University. The library also supports students and staff in various aspects of their education, teaching and research. Moreover, the library is a nice place to meet, work together and study in silence.

Medical services

In our experience most foreign insurances do not sufficiently cover medical expenses in the Netherlands (e.g. due to the relatively high costs for medical care in the Netherlands), and an extra insurance package is required. Check this carefully!

Campus life

  • Nestled in the heart of Rotterdam, Erasmus University College (EUC) finds its home in a magnificently restored former library, dating back to 1923.
