With comfortable hotel rooms, buzzing public spaces and a central location, The Social Hub Groningen (formerly The Student Hotel) is more than a hotel – it's a community hub for the bold and the brilliant to make memories, collaborate and everything in between.

The Social Hub Groningen is the perfect base for anything from a short city break to an extended stay. Amidst boundary-blurring spaces, you'll mix and mingle with locals, tourists, students and entrepreneurs – all as passionate about this student city as you are. Step outside, and you'll find yourself in Groningen's bustling Grote Markt. Once you’re done with strolling by the canals, head to the Hub to hang out in your comfortable room or head to the play area for some action.
