Step 3: Prepare for your stay
We are happy that you decided to study at the University of Groningen: a highly ranked university in a city with many possibilities to deploy yourself within and next to your studies. Before you start your studies, you might ask yourself: where can I live? when do the classes start?
In Groningen, students live in student housing or private accommodation. As it is often difficult to find accommodation in Dutch cities, we advise you to start searching for housing as earliest as possible. Keep in mind that over 20,000 students will be searching for a accommodation at the same time as you.
Watch the video below and listen to the students' experiences on finding a room.
What are your options?
- SSH Student Housing - you can rent one of the 1,500 rooms the University of Groningen has reserved for international students.
- Private accommodation - you can search and rent a room from private landloards on various websites such as At Home In Groningen, Funda, WoningNet.
- Long-stay hotel - The Student Hotel
- For advice on looking for accommodation, please visit Accommodation in Groningen.
