Top quality accommodation for University College Groningen students

28 May 2014

From August 2014, University College Groningen residential accommodation will open their doors to the students who have accepted their place on the latest Liberal Arts and Sciences programme. Located at Steenhouwerskade, the living quarters are a short distance from the city centre and the University College campus at Hoendiepskade making it extremely convenient for students.

‘They’ll be no excuse for them to be late!’, says Prof. Hans van Ees, Dean of University College Groningen. ‘The accommodation is a stones throw away from the campus, it’s the perfect spot.’

Self-catering apartments

University College Groningen has secured three levels of the building, which is currently being transformed into individual self-catering units inclusive of a shower, toilet, sink and kitchenette. ‘There will be 44 rooms ready for our first cohort of students in August. In addition to the self-catering apartments, a common room will be available for students to have space to enjoy together’, says van Ees.

Currently under reconstruction, the accommodation will be used for one year by University College Groningen, the plans after UCG move out is that it will become accommodation for PhD students. From September 2015, UCG will revert back to the original plans for accommodation to be at Ebbingekwartier.
