Students in Groningen looking for housing: here comes Ghuus.nl
International- and other students in Groningen who are looking for a room or living space no longer have to surf from one website to another or view numerous Facebook pages. Young people and students who are looking for a home, apartment or studio can now go to Ghuus.nl. It shows all affordable types of living space for young people from the Groningen housing associations. This concerns the available houses of the Groningen social housing associations Nijestee, Lefier, De Huismeesters, Patrimonium, Woonborg and Wierden en Borgen.
At Ghuus.nl, young people find all available student / youth housing of the corporations in the city of Groningen at a glance. The website is bilingual and user-friendly with fine filters and functions for young people. This makes it easier for young people and students to find a “house” in Groningen. The word Huus is Groningen-dialect for “house”. Hence the name: Ghuus
To rent a home or room, you must be registered with the housing association that offers the home. For Nijestee, De Huismeesters and Patrimonium you register at WoningNet. For Lefier, Woonborg and Wierden and Borgen you register on the website of the housing association.
Ghuus is a joint initiative of the Groningen corporations Nijestee, Lefier, De Huismeesters, Patrimonium, Woonborg and Wierden en Borgen.
Housing associations have affordable living spaces for students and young people in the municipality of Groningen. These living spaces are rented out via WoningNet, their own website or on recommendation. This is not transparent for young people and the overview is lacking. By showing both the available supply and total ownership on Ghuus.nl, the Groningen corporations are improving this.
