Ganymedes LGBT Student Association Groningen

Ganymedes LGBT Student Association Groningen is for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. Of course heterosexual students are welcome as well.

Ganymedes: Who are we?

Ganymedes LGBT Student Association Groningen is the oldest LGBT-student association in The Netherlands with nearly 200 members.

Every Thursday from 22:00 onwards everyone is welcome to come and drink with us. Every week we meet at either Tram 13 or De Rits.

Every first and third Thursday of the month* we are located in Bar de Rits, Pottebakkersrijge 2. Close to one of the most beautiful canals of Groningen, we can party until dawn!

Our other favorite bar is Tram13, Gelkingestraat 13. Here we organize socials every second and fourth Thursday of the month*. Less than 100 meters from the Grote Markt, and therefore the perfect location to get some drinks with your friends!

*= Check the agenda to find out the exact location.

Why are we different?



Everybody is welcome! Whether you are gay, bi, straight: everybody is welcome to come and drink with us!


Enroll throughout the year

It’s possible to become a member of our association all year round! Still not convinced to join during your first visit? No problem! Come back later to make your final decision.



Would you like to become actively involved within the association? You can! There’s a free spot in one of our many committees. Reward? A lot of gratitude from all of our members!



We organize a special drink for the international (LGBT) community in Groningen. Always wanted to meet the LGBT-internationals in Groningen? Join one of our international drinks!
