Student organisations play an important role in student life at Utrecht University. There are many (about 150) student organisations you can join. Some focus on offering a good time, while others centre around a religion, a sport or a shared cultural interest (e.g. singing, photography).
Most courses have their own student organisations that – besides organising social activities – also organise lectures and excursions that may be beneficial to your studies.
There are several student organisations that aim to provide numerous social activities, including counselling, for the benefit of students from abroad.
