Location

Located in the city of Rotterdam, almost all of EUR’s departments and institutes are concentrated on two campuses. With a population of over 600,000, Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands and the centre of the Rotterdam-The Hague metropolis.

It’s famous for its port, one of the biggest in Europe. The River Maas runs through our ‘skyscraper city’ with its innovative architecture. Behind the modern skyline, you’ll find a nice, even ‘cosy’ historic city centre.

Communication and travel links are excellent, with access to multiple bus routes, trams and tube stations. The university is close to motorways.
