ESN Iași is a non-profit organization, run by a group of students who are volunteering to help new Erasmus students integrate and get to know the city of Iași and its culture. The only criterion to join is embracing multiculturalism the way we do!


ESN Iași has been an official member of ESN AISBL since 2008 when it made its first steps towards achieving the goals of Erasmus Student Network: to facilitate the integration of foreign students in Iași and motivate local students to go abroad with the Erasmus mobility. Ever since the beginning, ESN Iași made sure to put a mark on the multi-cultural environment of Iași.


ESN Iași holds a record of about 60 volunteers, all working together in order to safeguard the wellbeing of the Erasmus students coming and their full international experience.


Because of the variety of the subjects and university departments Erasmus students are enrolled in, we collaborate with a considerable number of universities here in Iași, starting with “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași, “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iași, University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Iași, University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Grigore T. Popa" Iași  and and “George Enescu” University of Arts.


As no ESN section is like any other, we can boast ourselves with some particularities. We organize plenty of events: cultural (get to know the Romanian culture, while you exchange customs with your international friends!), social events (parties, chill gatherings), trips (Halloween in Transylvania, Escape to Vama Veche) etc. ESN Iași looks after the physical and mental health of the Erasmus students, while it maintains a playful, yet mature attitude. 


Our main objective is to help students integrate in our society, guide them during their stay in Iași and help them overcome any cultural differences. We provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of SHS - Students Helping Students.
