New accommodation in Groningen: Frascati International Students House

As of this month 210 students will live in the former KPN office next to the central station. It took only a few months to transform this office into Frascati International Students House, which combines accommodation for international students and gym facilities of ACLO. SSH lets the rooms to students of University College Groningen and international students at University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Science.

The past two months building constructor Geveke Bouw rebuilt the former "KPN Borg" from the inside. The owners are Vastgoed Groningen and Waarborg Vastgoed. The name refers to the location's history. At the same place where the KPN office was built, once stood the beautiful Hotel Frascati. More then a century ago people from over the world stayed here. As of this month, we will continue housing international guests in Frascati International House. Nice touch: inside the building you will find traces of the KPN time (KPN is a phone provider).

SSH lets the rooms for the next five years to students at University College Groningen (UCG) and international students at University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Science.
