About Euros

The D.R.V. Euros is one of the largest, oldest and most active sports associations of the University of Twente. Euros offers the ideal combination of exercising and socializing. Our own pub, ‘De Sevende Camer’, is located (with the boathouse) between the campus and the city and is the perfect place to meet up with your crew and relax after classes. Every thursday, our pub hosts dinner and drinks afterwards as well as annual events like a christmas dinner, our anniversary, karaoke, or the introduction parties. At Euros, we also organise our own national boat race, the Grolsch Euros Drienerlo Regatta. Here we welcome thousands of rowers from student associations all across the country to our channel.
Besides sports and socializing, you can also become an active member of one of our committees, coaches or eventually the board. This way, you gain useful career experience in a fun and accessible way.
During the Kick-In there are multiple moments when you can try rowing or just get a tour of the water sport complex, so visit us and see if rowing is your future.

Rowing at Euros

Rowing is -the- student sport by far. No other sport is so intertwined with studentlife as rowing. Most rowers only start rowing when they enroll in university and that makes rowing very accessible. Euros offers two types of rowing: The recreational competition rowing, where you can have a beer or two (or ten) after your race and the competitive “wedstrijd” rowing, where you practice 6-7 times every week to participate in (inter)national races. What makes rowing so attractive, is that you can reach the top relatively quickly. Rowing is easy to take up (it’s basically just one movement) and with professional coaching, you can achieve your highest potential.

Going pro

Euros is the only student sports association in Enschede that has professional sports as a standard. And not without results. Only 2 years ago, one of Euros’ rowers participated in the U23 championships and came in second!

New friends

Your crew is like your family in this new city. No matter how much and how fast you’ll be rowing, in your first year you’ll make friendships to last a lifetime.


Rowing is a very high-intensity sport. You mostly use your legs, but you’ll also be building rockhard abs and incredible core stability. Rowers are go-getters!
