Studying in Groningen

Located just seven minutes away on foot from the train station, you will find Tio's newest campus right in the heart of Groningen. This modern campus offers everything students need without sacrificing its small-scale character. Students immediately feel at home here. Are you curious to know what that feels like? Come take a look!

Groningen student city

Groningen is the place to be for students. Circa 25% of the city's population consists of students, many night-life establishments are open around the clock and the city centre is home to the well-known Grote Markt with its myriad cafés and restaurants. That is not all this town has to offer, though: a rich (trade) history, lush green gardens, abundant sports facilities, charming (shopping) avenues and amazing festivals and music venues.

Finding a room in Groningen

If you want to find a room in Groningen, take a look at the following tips.

Use your netwerk

Make use of your networks on social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, to announce your search for a room. Talk to family, friends and acquaintances. Send all your WhatsApp and Snapchat contacts a message. You can also go the traditional route and place an ad in door-to-door publications or regional newspapers (although these options are not free). Lastly, you can visit your Tio campus, where you will find information about finding a room posted on the magnetic boards.

Checklist for students living on their own

Besides finding a room, there are some other important things to take care of when you want to live on your own. Think of, for example, taking out household insurance and arranging an internet connection. Prizewize has drawn up a checklist for students living on their own (Dutch students only). This can act as a guideline, so you do not overlook anything important.
