Studentlife and welfare

Study and student associations

Want to make new friends quickly? Student Associations will help you get acquainted with others as well as help you build up a useful network in Utrecht. Study Associations help just as well, and they also organise activities in line with your field of education and future profession, like lectures, training sessions or company visits. If you are a member you can usual join at reduced prices. As a member of an association, it is often also possible to gain (executive) committee experience, on top of your regular studies.

A list of all HU Study Associations has been added to the website of the coordinating organisation OSHU. Visit the website (Dutch only) of the Study Organisation of your choice to register.


There are many cultural activities in Utrecht. Parnassos, a cultural centre, has courses and workshops on visual arts, dancing, music, theatre and much more. Check for availability here.
