Information about the Eurekaweek

Every new student of the Erasmus University Rotterdam is welcome to participate in the Eurekaweek. Participation with a functional impairment is possible but requires some extra attention from the Eurekaweek Board. We try to make all our events as accessible as possible. If you contact us before the Eurekaweek and inform us about your situation, we will do our utmost to help you as much as possible.

The building has a special toilet and shower for people that make use of a wheelchair. Everyone sleeps on a sleeping mat and you will also have your own chair. You are allowed to bring your own mattress or camp bed.
