Welcome to the Housing Office!
The Housing Office offers furnished accommodation in Groningen for foreign guests of one of the Universities. If you come to our city to study or work at either the University of Groningen (RUG) or the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen (HG) you are welcome to apply for housing with our organization.

Short stay contracts
We offer rooms based on short stay contracts. This means that guests can rent accommodation with a minimum stay of 5 months and with a maximum stay of 12 months. All contracts start from the first day of any month and end on the last day of a month.
Housing in Groningen
Important to know is that housing in Groningen is scarce and expensive. Housing Office is a non-profit organization. We have a cooperation with both the University of Groningen (RUG) and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen (HG). This makes it possible to rent our rooms and to provide you with our service.
You can also find us on Facebook!
Fully booked until December 31st
At this moment all of our rooms are fully booked, and we will be until December 31st. Be aware, during the month of January we will only have a few more rooms available for new applicants. From February 1st we expect to have plenty of rooms available again.
PhD Housing fully booked
Also all single rooms in our PhD accommodations are fully booked. We do have a few apartments available at Hofstede de Grootkade which are only intended for couples (PhD students who bring their partner). PhD students who plan to bring their partner and are eligible for this kind of housing can still apply for such a room. Unfortunately we do not have rooms available for single PhD students at the moment. Since the students who live in these accommodations generally plan to stay for a four year period, we cannot give an estimation on when rooms will become available again. This can take months or even years.
We will try to accommodate students who are already on our waiting list, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to find them accommodation. Therefore we advise everybody who has not yet received a room offer from us, to start looking for a room yourself, to increase the chance of finding housing. Should we not be able to offer you a room, we will refund everything you have paid.
