International Café organizes events for international students in Groningen. We hope to be a home-far-away and a meeting place for students from all over the world.


You as international students are guests in our country and we try to make you feel at home as much as possible while you are abroad.


International Café consists of a core of organizers (Hans, JoAnn, Mirjam, Ludie, Cornalie, Kars, Josine and little David) and many people who join to help, some food and great converstations.


In the fall of 2008 Hans and JoAnn van Seventer got together with Paul Nieboer to organize a Christmas Dinner. The dinner at Christmas was a great success, the atmosphere was a real wonder in itself and many international students found a warm place to celebrate Christmas. Soon the team was welcoming new members and the idea of doing something structural started to grow. Since the beginning of 2010 International Café has organized an event on one Saturday evening each month.
