Hatta building

372 accommodations
Campus Woudenstein
20 m² / 37 m² / 42 m²

Hatta building is located at Burgemeester Oudlaan on the campus grounds of the Erasmus University. The building offers accommodation to 372 Dutch students and international students. Hatta building is the ideal place to live as a student: live where you study, and study where you live. That might sound dull, but the opposite is true, because there is so much to do on the campus and in the surrounding area. For example, you can play sports in the 730 m² sports centre, and in the pavilions there is small-scale catering available, and performances and shows are organized here on a regular basis. A food plaza and a supermarket are within close reach, and it is easy to get to the centre by bicycle or by tram. In short: the Hatta building has all the ingredients for a sporty and enjoyable student life!

The building has 17 floors, with 34 residences and 338 rooms. The residences are unfurnished and are located on the 14th and 15th floors of the building.

Campus under construction
Campus Woudestein is becoming a modern campus which offers the facilities for a pleasant stay. This includes bars, where students can meet and have a drink. This may cause some noise sometimes. Next to that, Erasmus University is in the process of creating more facilities on campus. The construction of these facilities will cause unavoidable nuisance.
