Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is a non-profit international student organisation. Our mission is to represent international students, thus providing opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of ''Students Helping Students''. At the moment the ESN network consists of 42 countries and 525+ local sections.
In Utrecht, we have one of these spectacular local sections, which is run by the ESN Utrecht board. The board consists of six students who work full-time in order to provide the best possible experience for international students in our city. We offer a wide range of activities, suitable for everyone: from workshops, sporty activities, trips in the Netherlands, weekends abroad and not to forget our great parties, pub quizzes, charity- and career-events! Currently, we have 11 committees in ESN Utrecht, made up of over 100 committee members who work part-time to make all these great events happen.
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. Check our page about local partners regarding our deals if you would like to know more about where you can receive a discount with the ESNcard, or go to www.esncard.org for an overview of the international discounts.
