Welcome Friend – Groningen

Posted on: March 12, 2021

New to the city? Connect with a Welcome Friend who will introduce you to the city and answers any questions you’ve about life in Groningen.

Welcome Friend matches recently arrived students and international residents with a local English-speaking volunteer for a period of six months. An initiative of City Central, they pair up a local – a Dutch person or an international resident – with a newcomer, and the volunteer introduces him/her to the city and answers any questions he/she may have about life in Groningen.
