About Groningen

Tucked far away in the country’s northeastern part, Groningen is an overtly agricultural province that treasures many pleasant surprises. At its core lies a stunning 14th-century Hanseatic city that still keeps its charm even centuries after. It is known to turn heads with its prestigious university, vibrant food scene, and playful nightlife and creative pulse. To the south of Groningen, next to the country’s border with Germany, sits one of Netherlands’ well-preserved fortifications. What lies north of the place is Menkemaborg, a historic manor house, beyond which scenic countryside stretched to the Wadden Sea. The mudflats located in Hoogeland give the mountains its enthusing thrills, a facet that does not only attract wadlopers (mudflat hikers) but also students who wish to explore the vast landscape of the province.

Student Accommodations in Groningen

In Groningen, there are many student rooms available for occupancy, from studio units to shared apartments. These rooms—most of which were offices transformed into residences—are placed close to one of the beautiful parks in the city, like the Martinihouse. There are also available rooms for those who would like to live closer to Zernike campus, at Kornoeljestraat or Upsilon.

Full degree bachelor and master students of the University of Groningen who are considering a shorter stay can register for a short stay accommodation from various Student Housing websites. To save you the hassle, make sure to allow a week or two to have the chosen housing approved by your university and confer the information of the available rooms given to you. At the start of the school year, students who attend at the Groningen University are given the freedom to choose from nine faculties, housed in 150 buildings that are scattered throughout the entire city and surrounding areas of the province. The University of Groningen is considered the third-largest university in the Netherlands, following after Amsterdam and Utrecht.

Exchange and full degree bachelor and master students enrolled in Hanze University of Applied Sciences, on the other hand, are usually allowed to book a room after receiving the confirmation that the university has approved the registration. The Hanze University, which offers students courses for almost every field, is the most prominent higher professional educational institution on the Northern side of the Netherlands.

The Student Life in Groningen

Groningen is a highly energetic student city with more than 50,000 students pursuing higher and scientific education. Some of the notable figures who have completed their studies here are Aletta Jacobs, the first female to become a student in the Netherlands, Wim Duisenberg, the first president of the European Central bank, and Wubbo Ockels, the first Dutch astronaut in history. This is one of the many reasons why this student city is famous among international students. There is always something to pick up or learn here in the province of Groningen, thus making it entirely adapted to students. Aside from academic life, you can find a large number of bars and cafes close to the Poelestraat, Grote Markt, and Kromme Nieuwe Elleboog.
