ABOUT Ganymedes

Ganymedes is an open-minded and diverse association for LGBTQ+ students in Groningen. Founded in 2008, we are the oldest existing LGBTQ+ student organisation in the Netherlands!

At Ganymedes, you're free to be whoever you want to be(come). With over 170 members, you're sure to meet like-minded folks here - whether it's for a beer or just a casual conversation! We have drinks every Thursday, usually at Tram 13 (Gelkingestraat 13). In addition to the drinks, we organise parties, lectures, trips, game nights, dinners, and much more.

As a member of Ganymedes, your possibilities are endless. You can join a committee(s), a dispuut, or even found one of these yourself! We believe in equality and opportunity, so you're able to do these things from your very first day on. Naturally, we are also 100% hazing-free. We do organise a (non-obligatory) introduction period for new members, so you'll find your place quickly!

Keep an eye on our Instagram, website, or Facebook to see which activities are coming up. We hope to welcome you soon!
