Student Organisations

Student Organisations

Groningen has many associations and organisations which are focused especially on students. They can be placed in the following categories: student-, sports-, study, cultural, political, religious, and international associations.

All these associations and organisations will present themselves during the KEI-week. There are lots of events where you can get to know these organisations: The Information Market, KEI to your Future, the KEI-parade, Sportplaza, More to Explore, the Open Air Festival and the Eat and Greet. When you enroll for the KEI-week you can give your preferences concerning which type of associations you are interested in and which association you would like to visit in the KEI-week. Based on these preferences, KEI-groups are composed of people with similar interests.
