This former warehouse beside Coolhaven’s quay is very close to Historisch Delfshaven and the Euromast. It’s a place where you really do feel like you’re living in a port city.


Coolhaven building

Living in an old warehouse on the water is a really special student experience. With Historic Delfshaven around the corner and sociable Nieuwe Binnenweg, with its hip cafés and eateries, within walking distance, you’ll be right in the middle of a bustling part of Rotterdam. You’ll also be able to get together with your fellow students around the picnic table in the building’s courtyard.


Rooms, studios and apartments for students

Coolhaven’s rooms typically measure around 19m2. In these, you’ll share a kitchen, bathroom and toilet with one other resident, which means a good amount of privacy. The studios are 22m2 on average and the apartments 62m2. Both of these accommodation types come with completely private facilities.  Coolhaven has 54 rooms, 22 studios and three apartments available for students to rent. The building has a residents’ committee.


Living in Delfshaven

The Coolhaven quay has a beautiful view of Rotterdam’s Delfshaven district, a historic neighbourhood where you can get a good local beer. It’s an area that really gives you the feeling of being in a port city. On Nieuwe Binnenweg, there are always new (pop-up) shops to be found. In the summer you can relax in Het Park bij de Euromast, which is less than five minutes away by bike. Erasmus MC and various Hogeschool Rotterdam sites are within walking distance, or you can take the ferry to the RDM Campus.
