The Support center Mediation costs Groningen was originally launched by the Groningen Student Union (GSb), Kamerbewoners Adviesburo (KAB) and Student Organization Groningen (SOG).

Groningen Student Union

The Groningen Student Union (in Dutch GSb) is the student union for students in Groningen and fights for their interests. The GSb meets with the municipality of Groningen, local political parties, the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and the Hanzehogeschool to discuss the position and issues of students and to develop solutions. Together with our members we represent the interests of students. The Support centre Mediation costs Groningen is an example of an organization initiated by the GSb to tackle the issues regarding mediation costs.

Students can also go to the GSb if they encounter problems with their educational instances or house owner. Our Legal Helpdesk and Rental Team help out students for free with lowering their rent, solving maintenance issues or representing students at the Exam Committee when they receive a BSA or insufficient grade. These two committees consist of law students who have lots of experience and knowledge and can provide you with free advice and support.

The GSb organizes frequently interesting pub lectures and debates about for instance the abolishment of student grants and distributes important information to students through our ‘Kamerboek’ and our newsmagazine ‘Nait Soez’n’. Interested in becoming a member? Check out our website
