International Student Housing in Groningen

The University of Groningen does not have a university campus. Instead, our buildings and faculties can be found throughout the city of Groningen. To accommodate international students, we work closely together with the SSH, a non-profit housing organisation that offers furnished accommodation in Groningen for (international) students in one of our International Student Houses.

These houses are located throughout the city of Groningen, which makes it a great experience to live in the city! The buildings are within walking distance of the city centre and the summer school venue.

All rooms in the International Student Houses are fully furnished and have Wi-Fi. The kitchens and bathrooms are shared, usually with no more than 7 other students.

Housing for summer school participants

Many of our July and August summer schools offer housing to those participants who need accommodation. The service is optional, please indicate on your online application form if you want to have accommodation arranged for you.

If you agree to have housing arranged for you, you will be offered a standard package with the following conditions:

  • Standard rental from Saturday 2PM to Saturday 10AM.
  • Standard rent price for one week: € 250 (7 nights). This includes cleaning, bed package, basic kitchen utensils and a practical welcoming package. The price for two weeks (10-14 nights) is € 350.
  • Check-in is available on Saturday between 2PM and 8PM. If you arrive later, please contact your summer school coordinator as soon as possible, so arrangements can be made to welcome you.

We will try to lodge all participants close together, in the same building.

Arrange your own housing

Of course you can still decide to arrange your own housing. There are various opportunities, ranging from low-budget youth hostels to bed and breakfasts and (high-end) hotels. The university also has its own hotel: the University Hotel.

Please do keep in mind that Groningen is a popular student town, and that housing is scarce and expensive as a result of an ever growing student population. In addition, there is the risk of higher hotel rates because of the holiday season in summer time
