Our young and motivated team consists of students and graduates from the Hanze University of Applied Sciences (Hanzehogeschool) and the University of Groningen (RUG).

You receive a goodiebag with an OV-chipkaart (essential public transport card), a mobile sim card and much more. We will also help you to find a room in Groningen by giving you some tips and tricks and a link to our special 'Student Rooms Groningen' Facebook group. Before the academic year starts, join us for a great weekend in which you experience the amazing Groningen nightlife (soon available)! Also this weekend is a great opportunity to find a room in Groningen. These are yet two more reasons to get involved with WSG.

Check our service page or the WSG Facebook for more information and event dates. We hope to see you soon!
