Alumni Association Professor Keuning

Professor Keuning Association
Professor Keuning Association

The Professor Keuning Association is the alumni association of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. Founded in 2007, the association provides a platform for faculty staff, students and alumni to meet. After students have graduated from university, they often still feel strongly connected with the faculty as alumnus. Alumni often leave the university with a warm feeling of belongingness to the faculty. The alumni association is the platform for alumni to reconnect, to catch up on the latest developments in the field and to work on new ideas.


The alumni association organizes a few events per year, such as a lecture or an excursion. These events are usually spread across the country and are always concluded with drinks and snacks. Over the years, these events were organized in places such as the city center of Amsterdam, the railway zone in Utrecht and the earthquake zone just north of Groningen. In addition, the alumni association organizes an alumni day parallel to the RUG and Ibn Battuta lustrum.

Alumni day

Meeting, sharing, nostalgia and having fun: on Friday 3 September, the alumni association will organize the next alumni day together with Ibn Battuta and the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. In the context of the simultaneous 12th lustrum of Ibn Battuta, this is a great opportunity to renew mutual ties!

Not Just Bikes

As a city, Groningen is increasingly intertwined with the rest of the world. University of Groningen students come from all corners of our planet. Internationals can enrich the Dutch world view with new perspectives, but different views can also lead to misunderstanding due to cultural differences or a language barrier. It is therefore important to understand how non-Dutch people see Dutch planning. Do we sometimes realize how unique we are in the design of our public spaces in the Netherlands? Youtuber and vlogger Not Just Bikes takes us through his experiences as an expat in the Dutch planning world.

The Spatial Transformation of Zernike Campus

In 2018, the Zernike Campus was declared the fastest growing campus in the Netherlands. More and more innovative companies are establishing themselves the north of the city. On top of that, a 500 million investment fund has been set up to attract and accommodate companies, improve facilities and strengthen infrastructure and public space. Zernike Campus has become so much more than just the lecture halls. What does the future of the campus look like? Will the campus be connected by train or tram? And what about student housing on campus? The Municipality of Groningen and Campus Groningen share their vision for the future.

Dinner and Gala

Following the alumi day, Ibn Battta organizes the Lustrum Dinner and a Gala. Alumni are also invited. Register for the alumni day !
