The Erasmus Student Network Utrecht

In Utrecht we have one of these spectacular local sections. On top of that, Utrecht was the first ESN-section in the world! We were born on October 19th, 1989 and are still growing every year. We organize a lot of different things varying from sportive, social and cultural events to workshops for the internationally oriented. At ESN Utrecht you can meet local students as well as international students from all over the world. We also offer help with practical information, housing, transportation and generally finding your way in and around Utrecht. In addition, when you become a member of ESN Utrecht, you receive lovely local discounts in and around Utrecht, but also national and international discounts at a variety of shops, clubs, café's, hostels and more.
