Urgent housing message for new students from Hanze and RUG.


Each year, many students arrive at the start of the academic year to study in Groningen. The housing market in Groningen is tight, especially this year. It will be difficult for students to find a room in Groningen. With the convenant 'Student and Youth housing', the municipality, educational institutes, student organizations and the housing corporations will do their best to ensure housing for (international) students. For the upcoming academic year, they have a shared message for all students:

Shared message

Make sure to book a room before the 1st of August, if you are planning on studying in Groningen. If you decide to come to Groningen without a booked room, you will most likely be dependent on expensive hotels and hostels – if there is any room left at all. This may lead to high costs, discomfort and anxiety.

If you haven’t found a room by the 1st of August, we advice you not to come to Groningen.
