In a work environment that rewards quality and achievement, the university offers balanced study and research paths that vary in intensity to encourage everyone to develop their individual talents.

In Groningen, students live throughout the city and among the locals or ‘Stadjers’ as they call themselves. As such there is no campus or campus accommodation, but to help international students find housing, the University of Groningen cooperates with the Housing Office.
