The ERASMUS is the most widely known higher education student exchange programme worldwide. Since it’s launch over 23 years ago, more than one million students have benefited from the experience of studying in a foreign country.
The ERASMUS programme involves 2000 education institutions in 31 countries, or 90% of the European higher education institutions. In addition to the role it plays in teaching, the ERASMUS programme is now a truly social and cultural phenomenon, creating thus an open mindedness never before seen. In addition, it creates tolerant spirits and promotes inter-cultural dialogue among European youngsters.

The first few days
One week should be enough time to find something permanent. Check with the Mobility Office staff, on campus for assistance if you have not made any prior contacts before arriving in Lisbon. We recommend you stay in Youth Hostels for your first days, something temporary for while you look around. There are two Youth Hostels, both located in the Centre of Lisbon, providing excellent lodging conditions. The Lisbon Youth Hostel is quite close to IST.
