It's all in the mix – live together with Dutch and international students?

Now you can in de Upsilon in Paddepoel! The rooms of Upsilon are meant to be for international student, who temporarily come the Netherlands to study. Of course, it’s important that international students can easily integrate into the Groningen student culture and that they feel home in Groningen. That’s why SSH and Nijestee started a little experiment, by letting (international) students live together in places where they can meet, live en learn from each other. As of 1 September, SSH has made space for twelve enthusiastic Dutch students. Let’s mix!

The bike ride to the Zernike campus is only 5 minutes, to the city central only 10. The twelve furnished rooms will be occupied from the first of September.

SSH is offering the rooms with a campus contract. This means that you can rent the room while you are studying. When you have finished your studies, you will have a year to leave the room. Because rooms are only rented to students, it is important that you can prove that you are studying. This can be done with a copy of the student card 2020/2021 or with proof of registration at the RUG or Hanze 2019/2020 (or as of September 2020/2021).
