Erasmus Student Network Porto is a team of volunteer students, part of the European NGO Erasmus Student Network. We are a mix of Portuguese and international students who share an interest in intercultural exchanges, travelling, and showing our city. Our motto is Students Helping Students and that’s what we are: students like you.

We organize events of many different types, from Welcome Months to receive new students at their universities, to trips across the country. We study in many universities across the city, so you can easily find us. We are easily recognizable by our t-shirts with the slogan - Erasmus Addicted.



ESN Porto is the oldest ESN section in Portugal, founded in 1991 which became an official section in 2002. It has been growing since then and nowaday receives around 4000 exchange students per year. While maintaining a close relationship with the University of Porto we also collaborate with all Higher Education Institutions in Porto, Gaia and Matosinhos.

We really hope that you will have the best experience in Porto and be sure that we will do everything that we can to make this possible for all.
