IHS students’ accommodation
Since it is not so easy to find student accommodation in Rotterdam, IHS offers you the possibility to stay in the IHS student dormitory on campus.
Participants are offered apartments equipped with basic furniture providing privacy at reasonable prices. Facilities like the kitchen, toilet and shower are shared by a group of occupants. The costs for the IHS student dormitory are EUR 15 per night or EUR 450 per month (a onetime refundable deposit of 100 EUR is required at the beginning of the stay). Applicants can indicate their interest in renting IHS accommodation during the admissions procedure.
IHS student dormitory
The IHS dormitory is located on the campus of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. IHS is also based here. It is the main accommodation of IHS with around 66 rooms. In the dormitory participants have their own bedroom and share a bathroom and kitchen. All rooms are non-smoking. A laundry room is available in the dormitory.
There is a supermarket within 10 minutes walking distance of the dormitory. Public transport will take you to the city center in 10 minutes.
The rooms contain basic furniture:
- Bed (including mattress, pillow, and duvet)
- Desk chair
- Desk light
- Small closet
- Floor lamp
- Kitchen equipment such as pots, plates, glasses, cutlery, etc.
Tenants of the IHS dormitory do not have to buy/bring their own sheets cover, pillow cover and duvet cover. However, please note that there are no towels made available to the tenants.
When the rooms in the IHS dormitory are fully booked, IHS can accommodate students in dormitories outside the campus. These also offer private rooms with shared facilities. The basic inventory is usually the same as in the main IHS dormitory (bed, pillow, wardrobe, chair, desk, availability of washing machine etc).
The IHS dormitory offers a free internet connection. Landline phones are not available. To use your mobile phone, buying a sim card with discount rates for international calls can be useful (e.g. Ortel, T-Mobile, or Lycos).
We recommend participants not to bring their own car due to the fact that there is only paid parking in the city and on the Erasmus University campus.
