Student Accommodation


Our student housing, called Libertas, is managed by SSH : an independent non-profit organization providing student housing in Dutch cities. Once you're granted an offer to study at UCG, you will be informed about how to finalize your room reservation. UCG offers guaranteed housing in the centre of Groningen, however, only Early Bird students have a guaranteed room specifically in Libertas!

Libertas is located at Wouter Van Doevereplein. Only 10 minutes away from the University College. The building has 270 rooms in total, divided over 18 floors and almost all the rooms are unfurnished, except for 2 floors.

€600 to €650 per month


The sizes vary from 16 to 18 m2 and everyone has their own private bathroom!

Libertas is very close to the City Beach and the most popular park: the Noorderplantsoen! Also, it will only take you a couple of minutes on your bike to reach the city centre.

Housing Mission

UCG’s student housing for first-year students fosters a community-based living environment consciously designed to support personal growth and development that encourages inclusion, personal responsibility and respect for the rights of others while promoting intellectual community. This developmental growth outside the classroom is complementary to the skills learned inside the classroom during the first year at UCG and epitomises what students value in the programme, a challenging and interactive experience that supports development of teamwork and creative “outside the box” thinking.
