Get a buddy!
The ESN Buddies are Dutch and international students from all the different faculties of our university. All buddies have lived for at least one year in Rotterdam and really like to share their knowledge and time with incoming exchange and/or full-time students who would like some help with their integration. Participating in our buddy-programme is a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and insights about different cultures, and a great way to meet new people in Rotterdam. Buddies are there to make sure new students are being helped with all issues they might encounter during their stay in Rotterdam. Requesting a buddy is a great way to have a first contact person who is eager to help you out in your new exciting experience of moving and studying abroad.
