Student organisations

Studying at Utrecht University means studying in a vibrant city, with a good atmosphere and a bustling student community made up of many different student organisations.

While some focus on offering a good time, others centre around a religion, a sport or a shared cultural interest (e.g. singing, photography).

Most courses have their own study association that organises – besides social activities – lectures and excursions that may be beneficial to your studies.

The summary below includes several organisations that are not exclusively for students but that offer events and other activities in English. Check our student website for the complete list of student organisations.
