De Schans

A real student residence with spacious rooms, studios and apartments. The accommodations on the ground floor have a small garden and there’s a shared roof terrace on the twelfth floor. There aren’t many places that give you a view of the city like this!

De Schans building

De Schans is a great place to live for those who are studying in the Kralingse Zoom area. It’s a quiet, easy-to-get-to environment with free parking. You can cycle along the Maas to the centre in 15 minutes. And you can get together with fellow residents on the roof terrace while enjoying magnificent views of the Rotterdam skyline. There’s a party room with a bar which you can hire on your birthday, as long as the residents' committee hasn’t already got something planned there! De Schans is located at Kralinger Esch 2 to 384.


Spacious rooms, studios and apartments for students

The 54 rooms in De Schans measure 26m2 on average. For these, the kitchen, bathroom and toilet are shared between just two residents. The 129 studios measure an average 34m2 and provide completely private facilities. There are also nine apartments measuring 57m2. The ground floor accommodations have a garden. If you have a car, you can park it for free in the designated area in front of the building. De Schans has an active residents’ committee with its own website.


Living in De Esch

This Rotterdam neighbourhood has a real sense of space. The residential building is surrounded by many sports fields, there are public tennis courts in the adjacent park and, from time to time, shepherds even graze their flocks here. It feels like you’re in the countryside, even though the centre is just a fifteen minute cycle ride away. If you take the route through Kralingen, you can also stop off in one of this pleasant student neighbourhood’s bars. The Kralingse Bos is a great place to get a breath of fresh air after a hard week of studying. You can enjoy festivals in the summer here too. If you live in this area, you’ll be a stone's throw from the university campus and Rotterdam Hogeschool’s Kralingse Zoom site. The metro and bus are a fifteen minute walk away and the motorway is a two minute drive.
