Student Service Centrum (SSC)

It is possible that the transition from high school to university is a bigger step than expected, which can lead to struggles with studying. Also, you can have some special needs because of a learning disability (ADD, ADHD, ASD, dyslexia etc) or a physical disability. In this case, you can contact the SSC for study accompaniment. The SSC is for all RUG students who need advise, training and coaching. Depending on your question, a fitting type of accompaniment will be chosen.

The SSC is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:45 till 12:30 and from 13:00 till 16:30. Wednesdays from 8:45 till 12:30.
