Our kitchen

We have a menu with pizzas, pastas, salads and a variation of other delicious meals. This menu changes every week.
This way our chefs can work with seasonal products and are always on the look out for new recipes for you.
Where possible we work with organic and local products, all prepared in our own kitchen.

Our kitchen is specialized in making vegetarian- and vegan dishes. Almost all the dishes can be made vegetarian or vegan.
For example the mozzarella on the pizza can be changed into vegan cheese.
We also don’t forget about people who eat glutenfree. You can see on the menu what is glutenfree and we also got glutenfree pasta.
For all your diet wishes, just ask our staff.

We work with Too Good To Go. An app that reduces food waste.
When we have left over good food, we will make packaches and put them on Too Good To Go.
Win-win. We won’t throw away food and you can have an amazing meal for a small price.

Everybody is welcome

The Erasmus Paviljoen is the vibrant heart of the campus and is open to anyone: faculty and students’ associations, university or cultural organisations, theatre companies, bands and so on can stage their activities, performances and acts in the multi-purpose theatre for their own audience. Students and staff can study or work in the lounge and study area or hold meetings in the meeting room. Anyone is welcome to come for a bite to eat or a drink in the grand café or on the terrace next to the lake.

The wifi connection is excellent throughout the building and our chalkboards communicate the weekly specials, upcoming events and news. The menu offers substantial dishes at an affordable price as well as more exclusive dishes for the gourmet. And whether it’s a coffee-to-go you’re after or a quiet breather in our lounge. Anything is possible in the Paviljoen.

Building design

The Erasmus Paviljoen has been built in the new heart of Woudestein campus, Erasmus University Rotterdam. Designed by Powerhouse Company and De Zwarte Hond, it plays an essential  role in focusing and charging the newly created public space, both functionally and symbolically. Situated at the junction of the 2 main axes and universally oriented, the building provides a focal point to the campus – there where research meets business and academia mingles with culture. From anywhere in the Paviljoen there is a view on the campus, due to the glass façades and the differences in level inside the building.

The Paviljoen’s design is an integrated approach, based on programming as well as intimacy, flexibility, sustainability and architecture. This has resulted in a building which not only adapts to daily changes in weather or of seasons, but also to the events it hosts. The building’s façade mediates between the exterior and interior, consisting as it does of louvered shutters. These open or close depending on the amount of sunlight, thus creating dynamic insulation and a façade which literally adjusts to weather and light. An energy-efficient feature.


The organisation of Erasmus Paviljoen strives for sustainable working methods that are beneficial to people, animal welfare and the environment. This we demonstrate in a variety of ways.

The flexible louvered shutters on the façade control the influx of heat and light, depending on the weather, the incidence of light and the seasons. In addition, we have natural ventilation, hot/cold storage and solar panels on the roof. The Erasmus Paviljoen is connected to a mono source for hot/cold storage, which stores energy underground in pipes of about 175 metres in length. Also, the Erasmus Paviljoen utilizes waterless urinals.

Apart from our energy supply, the products and furniture used in the Paviljoen are also sustainable. Wherever possible, we serve organic and local produce, all freshly prepared in our own kitchen. Our coffee is fairtrade, the coffee cups biodegradable and our furniture vintage.

The Erasmus Paviljoen is always open to cooperate with other parties (such as student associations, faculties or cultural organisations). Do you have an idea for a project or programme which would be right for the Erasmus Paviljoen? Contact us via
