The University of Groningen is not a campus university which has rooms to offer to its students. Instead the University of Groningen has a separate organisation for student housing: SSHXL. The employees of SSHXL will do their very best to find you living quarters (in shared houses, flats or apartments) in or around Groningen. After you have been nominated, you will receive further instructions about the exact housing procedure. The International Office does not have any influence on the search for rooms.

It is important to know that you have to send in the housing application form quite early: the sooner you send in the form, the sooner a room will be available. Please be aware that there is a fixed rental period for five months or ten months! Mind you that rent must be paid from the first day of the arrival date you mention on the application form. You also have to pay a deposit and administration costs in advance.

If students have to cancel their stay in Groningen, or if they arrive later than the date they have indicated on the form, students should inform both the SSHXL and the International Office as soon as possible.

All general information about SSH procedures, house rules, bank details etc. can be found on the SSH website

Students can also look for private accommodation or rent a room at the Student Hotel Groningen. More info can be found on the website of the Student Hotel Groningen.
