Cycling in Rotterdam

The Dutch heavily rely on bikes. Like the dikes that keep the water out, bikes are an essential part of living in the Netherlands. There are some 18 million bikes in Holland, that’s a little over 1 bike per person – as a student you should claim one of those.

As good as the public transportation works here in Rotterdam, biking will save you a lot of time and money, provides you with a free workout, and allows you to run every day errands such as going to University or to the grocery store.

The Eurekaweek is the annual freshers’ week at Erasmus University; the ideal start to student life. For participants, it’s a chance to explore the city, the study programme and the campus, to get to know people before lectures begin and to find out what you can do and get involved with in addition to your studies. It’s an expedition into unknown territory, hence the theme ‘Your EURban Expedition’. This also reflects the close relationship between city and university. This year, around 2900 new students participate in the Eurekaweek.
