Ganymedes LGBT Student Association Groningen focusses mainly on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. In December of 2013, Ganymedes celebrated their first “lustrum” (or: fifth anniversary). At the moment Ganymedes has about 200 members. Besides members, we also have donators which are MBO-students (community college) or graduated students.

Every Thursday from 10 p.m. onwards we invite everybody to come and have a drink with us. We organize weekly socials at two different bars. One week we’re at Bar De Rits, Pottebakkersrijge 2, and the other week we’re at Tram13, Gelkingestraat 13. Besides our weekly socials we have plenty of (monthly) activities. Activities usually start at 9 p.m., but all the information will be visible on our Facebook/Website. Afterwards, we usually head back to one of our bars.

Thanks to of the many committees there’s plenty of work to be done. If you just join Ganymedes for the socials, that’s fine. But we offer the opportunity to become actively involved in the association. We organize activities to support the community, and work together with external parties like Stichting LGBT Groningen, COC Groningen, or Amnesty International.

Would you like to get to know Ganymedes a little better? Keep an eye on our agenda, and join us on one of our socials (borrels) or activities. Want to get to know us a little better first? Sure, no problem! Send an e-mail to and the board members will get in touch with you. We’re more than happy to answer all of your (remaining) questions.
