Student Culture Centre Usva

Student Culture Centre Usva is the place for the culturally interested student in Groningen! We offer a wide range of courses and events. For instance, join a course in film making, modern dance, sing in a choir, start your day with hatha yoga or take your first steps towards an acting career. One thing is for sure: Usva is the place to develop your talents or try something completely new!

You can take courses at Usva in the following categories:

Visual Arts & Fashion // Body & mind // Dance // Drama //
Film, photo & design // Music // Writing & Speaking

Usually, our courses are divided into three trimesters of 10 weeks. The dance courses stretch across half a year or an entire year. Most of our courses have different entry levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Each course is given by a professional teacher in small groups; the perfect environment to develop your skills!
Besides the courses, the Student Board of Usva organizes a lot of different events.

Each month you can join the Jam sessions, test your knowledge of art and culture during the Quiz Nights or enjoy a movie with an informative lecture during the Film Nights.

We also organize some big events, for example:

– Flicks Short Film Festival
– Clothes-swap Events O-Swap
– Singer-songwriter contest Nootuitgang
– KEI x Usva Bandcontest
– Beer Yoga
– Lie down & Listen concerts
– Usva at the Park
– And many more…

A lot of these events are organized with the help of committees. If you would like to become active in the centre of culture for students, take a look on our website! Maybe we have the perfect committee for you!

Last but not least, we have a bar that serves 22 different craft-beers, including our very own Usva-beer! Let us know when you find that elsewhere at the RUG. So come over and try them all!
