The International Welcome Center North (IWCN) is a one-stop shop for international people living in Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe.

We offer services in three areas:  government formalities (residence permits and municipal registration); information (practical information and referrals to reliable service providers); and events (a chance to start building a social and/or business network during events).

All of this happens at one location, and we are open five days per week from 10:00 to 17:00 (read more).
