Going to study at university is a big step; our aim is to make that step a little less daunting. We exist to make your student life a little more comfortable, ranging from fun parties and social events to practical and informative events and tips about studying and living in the Netherlands.
In the summer of 2011, a group of friends got together in the hopes of filling a gap in the market of student organizations because we realized internationals didn’t have the same social opportunities as Dutch students. The idea was to become an organization that would focus on international students in Rotterdam; organizing events to enhance student life and providing all the information that is useful to internationals. This led to the creation of our non-profit student organization: International Students Rotterdam.
Since 2019, ISR is a member of the umbrella association of Erasmus Multicultural Associations (EMA) at Erasmus University Rotterdam. ISR is enthusiastic to work with EMA in bringing diverse student communities together and collaborating on events!
