Important notice
If you are a new incoming student for the 2020-2021 academic year, please read here.

The University of Groningen does not have a campus. This means that the University of Groningen itself does not have rooms available for students. The University of Groningen has arranged for an accommodation organisation called SSH to take care of accommodation for international students in Groningen though.

You will receive more information about  SSH upon admission. Students can find accommodation by registering on the SSH website. After registration, the Admissions Office will approve the accommodation request. This will trigger the possibility for students to find accommodation, an exact room, in the online system on the SSH website. After choosing one of the available rooms on the SSH website, students are required to pay the reservation fee, plus first and last month’s rent. Payment can be taken care of through bank transfer or with credit card. It is important to know that you have to send in the application form quite early - the sooner you send in the form, the better chances of securing a room with them. Keep in mind that rent must be paid for the entire period you are renting a room from SSH. No deposits are required. More information about prices and to see pictures of the houses and rooms can be found on

Students can also seek accommodation through The Student Hotel Groningen, which offers different options for short-stay and long-stay guests.
