Meet your new family: PPI Rotterdam.

PPI Rotterdam stands for Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia Rotterdam, or Indonesian Students Association in Rotterdam.

Founded in 1985 by a few students of the Erasmus University Rotterdam, PPI Rotterdam (or often abbreviated as PPI-R) was created to assist the assimilation processes of Indonesian students in Rotterdam, as well as organizing activities that may help Indonesian students feel at home.

Initially, PPI-R started as a sub-organization under KASEUR Erasmus. KASEUR is the umbrella organization for various International Students Organizations in Erasmus University. However, with the dynamically growing number of Indonesian students in Rotterdam as well as the development of PPI-R, it not only serves as the unifying organization of Indonesian students in Erasmus University, PPI-R also has members from other academic institutions in Rotterdam.
