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