An international crowd of students, teachers, professors, business people and Rotterdammers all find their way to the spectacular Erasmus Pavilion. “This place is alive with music, culture, ideas and seriously good food,” says marketing manager Amanda Wijgerse. “It’s the beating heart of the University campus, where people from all over the world meet up, study, go for a meal, see a concert or take part in a conference.” The modern wood and glass building has received many plaudits for its attractive appearance, open aspect and sustainable design with solar panels, geothermal heating and dry toilets.
