We are a place where Groningen meets the world, and the world meets Groningen. Located in the heart of the city, City Central aims to connect her new residents to Groningen so that they can integrate, contribute, and feel at home here.

Our vision
We see Groningen developing into a thriving cosmopolitan city, which nevertheless retains its own local identity. We want it to be a city where new residents integrate well and can contribute fully, and where everyone - both new and old residents - feels at home.

Our mission
Connecting new residents to the city so that they can integrate well, feel at home, and contribute to the success of the city. We do this by providing information, organising events, facilitating contact between new and old residents, and telling the story of internationalisation.
