Is Groningen a Sustainable Student City? A White Paper


Hubert Matuszewski; Daniel Macrae; Advay Jain; Erfan Mohseni; Lise Oldenziel; Ferdinand Lewis


Over the last few years, Groningen universities and the Gemeente Groningen have undertaken an initiative to become known not merely as a student city, but as an “international” city.
To achieve this, they have planned to increase the international student population within the city.

While trying to attain this vision, however, problems seem to have surfaced. In this white paper, we argue that many of the issues underlying this policy are either not clearly defined or are defined too narrowly. This naturally poses serious problems for the future of Groningen as an international student city.
