In the Netherlands universities do not provide the student accomodation. We do reserve limited accommodation with housing providers with the SSH, and we can divert you to the private market. For reliable housing offices, please scroll further to the bottom of this page.

SSH registration is open

The SSH registration of EXCHANGE and DOUBLE DEGREE MASTER students for the SUMMER SEMESTER is open. From Monday November 1st students can book a room. More information, see the section (Suggestions/Register at SSH/Short Stay (international student houses) below.

Of course, we are here for you to support and help with advice. Please play the video and check our list of suggestions in the section below. If you have any more questions about housing or are experiencing problems with finding accommodation, you can contact our Housing Team by email at: housing@org.hanze.nl 


Tips for finding accommodation

Tip #1: Start looking in advance
Groningen is a popular university city and the demand for student housing is very high. We advise you to start looking for housing as soon as possible: 3 to 5 months before you come to Groningen.

Tip #2: Use your network
Use your network to find accomodation. Friends, social media, online platforms. Get in touch with students who already live in Groningen. Contact agencies for rooms on the private market. Let everyone know you're looking for housing in Groningen. Also see Tip #6

Tip #3: Don't be too picky 
Of course you want a large room with private bathroom and kitchen five minutes by bike from Hanze UAS, preferably for around €200.- a month. But unfortunately this is not likely to happen. Our advice: don't be too picky when it comes to the facilities and the pricing. The average room in Groningen has a rental price of €414,- per month.

Tip #4: Arrive early 
If possible arrive early in Groningen so you can personally contact agencies and attend group viewings. Dutch students organize group viewings when a room becomes available in their home. That way they can meet everyone in person and choose a new roommate. 

Tip #5: Widen your search area
The Netherlands is a small country, so living outside of Groningen when you can't find accommodation is a great alternative. For example, the cities of Assen (15 min. by train) or Leeuwarden (35 min. by train) are nearby.

Tip #6: Be persistent 
Don't give up too soon. It might take months to find a room, but you will find it'll be well worth living in Groningen. 

Tip #7 Use your common sense
If you try to find housing on your own, please make sure to do this through official websites or companies that you can trace. Beware of fraudulent practices and scammers. Avoid identity theft: never send a copy of your passport to strangers. Do not send money without receiving a contract/lease. Do not transfer money, especially if the bank account is outside the Netherlands. If you are using social media to find housing, check the social media profile for any signs of the account being fake. When in doubt, contact our housing officer at housing@org.hanze.nl.

Corona measures

Please note: due to the adaptive nature of Covid-19, the guidelines and rules of the Dutch government & authorities are subject to regular change and therefore it is your own responsibility to act according to the newest Covid-19 rules / regulations set in place.

Getting vaccinated without appointment

In the Netherlands you can get vaccinated without having to make an appointment. In Groningen you are welcome at MartiniPlaza (Expositielaan 9). Bring your ID and a face mask.
