Second to Amsterdam, the city of Groningen has the most student houses in the Netherlands.
According to research from the Central Bureau of Statistics, there are 25,000 student houses in the city, which accounts for 22.1 percent of all households in the city.
The only Dutch city with a higher percentage of student houses is the university city of Wageningen: the city has 38,488 residents, and 25.2 percent of households there are occupied by students.
A student house is defined as a household where all of the inhabitants are high school or university students. The number of students in Groningen no longer living at home rose by nearly 10 percent between 2011 and 2015. That number has grown more quickly in other student cities, namely Wageningen (33 percent), Delft (27 percent) and Leiden (27 percent).
