Erasmus is not one year in your life
but your life in one year

Hello there!

Welcome to Erasmus Life Lisboa

First of all, let us tell you who we are. We're a non-profit organization founded in March 2013 by a couple of Portuguese students who had just returned to Lisbon from their own Erasmus Program. After coming back from what it could only be described as the best time of their lives, they decided to set up this association in Lisbon to provide all the incoming international students with the same amazing experience.
Erasmus Life Lisboa was born to make you feel at home, by helping you in the best way possible and to make sure you have the most exciting time of your life by creating experiences and memories you will never regret!
Soon Lisbon will be your new favorite city and you'll wish that your Erasmus in Lisbon will never end. We will be here every single day ready to welcome you, help you with whatever you need and show you our amazing city, the sparkling culture, the destinations around Portugal, show you weird typical Portuguese habits and of course party like there's no tomorrow.
