Q: How do I get involved/active within ESN?
A: With an ESNcard (€6,-) you can buy tickets for all our events. You can buy the card at our ticketshop. After your payment, you have to pick up the physical card at our office. The address of our office is Princetonplein 9, 3584CC Utrecht. We are open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 13:00 to 17:00.
You can also become active in one of our 14 committees. These committees have different responsibilities. Some organize activities, others keep internationals up to date, promote ESN or keep the overview of the organisation. On this page, you can find more information about the different committees.
Committees start their work at the beginning of each academic year. However, we start looking for committee members at the end of the previous academic year. Sometimes spots open after one semester; keep an eye on our Facebook page if you're interested in this!
Q: What is an ESNcard?
A: The ESNcard is the membership card of the Erasmus Student Network, which means that you can access all the services offered by ESN and our partners. The aim of the ESNcard is to support and give opportunities to international students during and after their exchange. Keep your ESNcard ready and enjoy its advantages!
With the ESNcard you will not only enjoy many discounts at the local partners of ESN Utrecht, which you can find here, but you can also enjoy thousands of discounts (housing, sport, food, bars, etc.) all over Europe. So wherever you travel in Europe, make sure to bring your ESNcard!
