Van Swietenlaan 23
Suite 23 is a newly acquired building by SSH in the south of Groningen. It will be rented out from the 1st of February 2018 onwards for rental periods of one semester at a time. It is a temporary facility that provides a quick expansion to the quantity of rooms for international students in the city. The cycling distance to the city centre is 15 minutes, and the distance to Zernike Campus about 25 minutes. Due to its close proximity to the Martini Hospital, good bus connections to the city centre are widely available, too.
The communal areas
The building has four floors which vary in size. Each floor has 2 toilet blocks (one male, one female) and two shower blocks (one male, one female). On the ground floor a laundry room is created that serves the entire residence, as well as a small seating area with vending machines. On the first floor, a large dining room/common room can be found in which extra seating space will be created to further facilitate interaction among the students. Adjacent to the dining hall, one kitchen can be found (48m2), with stoves, ovens/microwaves, and a large sink for the entire house. Please keep in mind that the kitchen facilities are basic and will not be substantially altered.
Suite 23 will first accommodate 100 international exchange students, in both single and double rooms. Single rooms vary in size between 15m2 and 18m2, and double rooms are between 30m2 and 42m2. The estimation of the rental price at this point is between €375,- and €475,- a month, including all extra charges (e.g. internet, room inventory, gas, electricity, water etc.).
