1913: Netherlands School of Commerce

Erasmus University Rotterdam has been in existence in its present form since 1973. Its history, however, dates back to 1913, the year in which the Netherlands School of Commerce (Nederlandsche Handels-Hoogeschool, NHH) was founded through private initiative with broad support from the Rotterdam business community.

The 'Founding Fathers' pf the Erasmus University Rotterdam were J.A. Ruys, C.A.P. van Stolk and W.C. Mees, which you can view from left to right and the picture at the top of this page. The photo is part of the historical collection of the photo archive of EUR.

1939: Netherlands School of Economics

The statutory recognition of higher education in commerce and economics as an academic discipline resulted in 1939 in a change of name. The NHH became the NEH (Nederlandse Economische Hogeschool) or Netherlands School of Economics. The growing complexity of society led in the 1960s to the arrival of the faculties of Law and Social Sciences, followed in later decades by Philosophy, History and Arts, and Business Administration.

1966: Medical Faculty Rotterdam

From 1950, the Foundation for Higher Clinical Education used its best efforts to get a full academic medical study programme established in Rotterdam, and with success. In 1966 the government established the Medical Faculty Rotterdam, which was housed next to Dijkzigt Hospital. Together with the Sophia Children's Hospital and the Daniel den Hoed Clinic, it forms the University Hospital Rotterdam, which as of 1 January 2003 bears the name Erasmus MC.

1973: Erasmus University Rotterdam

In 1973, the Medical Faculty Rotterdam and the Netherlands School of Economics merged to become Erasmus University Rotterdam – the first university in the Netherlands named for a person, a man to whom Rotterdam owes the reputation it has held for centuries in the academic world, Desiderius Erasmus.

In 2009, the International Institute of Social Sciences became part of Erasmus University. ISS is an internationally renowned institute in the field of development studies and international cooperation.

Erasmus University College was established in 2013. EUC is an international undergraduate Liberal Arts & Sciences college and a prominent international research university.

On these pages you can find information about matters that are relevant for students coming to Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR).

Some of these topics specifically apply to students studying at the Woudestein campus, but most of the services are provided to all EUR-students. In case the information is not applicable to you, please check your faculty for these services on your campus. 

Housing for International Students

Different housing applies for students of Erasmus University College (EUC) and the International Institute of Social StudiesOpens external (ISS).

First things first: student housing in the Netherlands is not arranged for you by the university; it is your own responsibility. We know this can be a surprise and a struggle for some of you. There are reserved spots for about 25% of our yearly incoming internationals. Most arrange housing directly with landlords via the private market. We strongly advise you to start looking at least three months before arrival to avoid stress and disappointment, while our housing team works hard to make it easier for you.

While Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) isn't able to assist all students in finding a house, we do want to help you in the best way possible by offering you multiple tips and tricks.
