Supervisory Board


The Organization chart of Stichting KEI consists of several parts. The Supervisory Board and the Daily Board are the most important parts. The Supervisory Board is the board that has the final responsibility for everything that happens during the KEI-week. They control and advice the Daily Board and write long-term plans for Stichting KEI. The Supervisory Board has to approve the policy stated by the Daily Board, the budget plan and the annual reports. Once a month the Daily Board and the Supervisory Board meet together to talk about the policy and progress made by the Daily Board. In the Supervisory Board, multiple sectors of Groningen are represented, such as culture, student associations, sport associations, the University of Groningen (RUG), University of Applied Science (Hanzehogeschool) and ex-members of the Daily Board.

Frequently asked questions for KEI-lopers

What does ‘KEI’ stand for?

KEI stands for “Kommissie Eerstejaars Introduktie” , which can be translated as “The commission for the introduction of first-year students”. The KEI-week is the general introduction week for all incoming higher education students, both at the University of Groningen and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. The KEI-week is the oldest, largest and cheapest introduction week in the Netherlands.

When does the KEI-week start?

The KEI-week 2019 takes place from 12th until the 16th of August!

What does the KEI-week cost?

The fee for registration is only €25,-: the cheapest introduction week in The Netherlands! You can also sign-up during the KEI-week, this costs €28,-. When registered, you have access to all events. The KEI organisation will provide coupons that will enable you to buy drinks and meals in bars and restaurants for reduced prices.

Who can sign up for the KEI-week?

The KEI-week is organized for all first year students of the University of Groningen, Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Obstetric Academy Amsterdam Groningen, Stenden University of Applied Sciences and HBO-NL. Pre-Master and Master students are also more than welcome!

Can I receive a refund if I have paid but choose not to attend the KEI-week or KEI-hostel/Sleep-in?

It’s not possible to claim a refund for any previously paid for ‘articles’ such as a ticket for the KEI-week or a place to sleep during the KEI-week (KEI-hostel, Sleep in). We advise you to wait with your registration until you are accepted at the university/school. We don’t have a maximum of participants for the KEI-week, so you can always sign up online for the KEI-week until the 9th of August. However, we don’t have an unlimited amount of places to sleep, so we can’t guarantee a place to sleep if you wait too long.

What is the deadline for registration?

Online registration is possible until Friday the 9th of August. During the KEI-week you can also sign up on Monday during the Day Registration. If you are not able to sign up before Monday evening, you can sign up at the KEI-office located at Pelsterstraat 23, during the rest of the week.
