Being a student at University College Groningen means you wil be part of a community and you will live in the Frascati International Student Housing for the first year of study (this is mandatory). Living together with your fellow students provides an excellent opportunity to get to know each other well and to build solid friendships. Considering that studying at UCG requires a lot of group-work, living together also makes it easier to plan these group meetings and generally enhances the overall academic community, which is essential to our philosophy of what makes a great university college. Additionally, living on campus has the benefit of allowing you to immediately focus on your studies considering your housing is already arranged for you! Please note that residential living is mandatory during the first year, there are no exceptions. In the second year you have the possibility to extend your rental contract in the Frascati International Student Housing, but you are also allowed to find accommodation elsewhere.

Our students live at the Frascati International Students House, situated next to Groningen train station overlooking the Zuiderhaven canal, and just a few minutes away from the UCG campus building and city centre. Students have their own furnished bedroom which is part of a unit consisting of 8-10 rooms. In each unit there is a kitchen, common room and bathroom facilities to be shared by the students in that unit. The building also has a laundry room, sports facilities and lockable bike shed.

The building is managed by SSH, the independent non-profit organization providing student housing in Dutch cities. Once you have been granted an offer to study at UCG, you will be informed about how to finalize your room reservation. Earlybird students have first pick in our student housing. Should you have any questions in advance, please contact us via newstudents.ucg@rug.nl.
