Groningen has a rich history for being the second oldest university town in the Netherlands and has continued to be a center for student activity. The city is loved by its inhabitants and offers a variety of opportunities to get out and explore both the city itself in all of its rich history as well as the vibrant urban musical culture that has developed in and around the city. Boasting a young and student heavy population, Groningen has several unique cultural opportunities including the Groningen museum of art as well as a comics museum and several others. There is no reason for students to stay shut indoors while staying in Groningen as they can join over half the city's commuters on bike to access large portions of the city specifically sectioned off from automotive traffic. 
 
RepsHow It Works
– Cost 
ETSU and Hanze UAS are exchange partners, so tuition is paid through ETSU and costs are comparable to 15 credit hours at ETSU's main campus. 
– Lodging 
Because Groningen is a student town, Hanze UAS advises students to begin searching for accommodations at least 3 months before departing. It is common for schools in the Netherlands to not have housing accommodations built on campus, so Hanze UAS utilizes a nonprofit service, SSH, to help international students find temporary accommodation at a reasonable price. Hanze UAS also offers other housing opportunities in the area.
– Travel 
Groningen is easily accessed via public transportation from Amsterdam International airport. Alternatively, Hanze UAS offers a student pick up service free of charge, but you are still responsible for your own travel ticket (plane, train, etc.). You can view detailed directions on how to get the university on their webpage
