Student Life

In Groningen, you’ll see students everywhere: studying in the pretty Noorderplantsoen park, working various part-time jobs and partying the night away. And, because it’s relatively affordable here, students live across the city, making all of Groningen your campus. Groningen is also a safe and green city to live in, with the quiet countryside only a short bike-ride away. No wonder the city’s marketing slogan is #NothingTopsGroningen
