GK stands for shared living room. A shared living room is a living room that you share with all roommates. Many houses in Groningen consist of a number of bedrooms, a bathroom, a toilet and a GK. Students who live in a house with a GK often have a smaller room of their own, because they do not need to be in the room in addition to sleeping and studying.

Other student rooms in Groningen are slightly larger, because they are in a house without a GK. In these types of houses, your student room is a bedroom and living room in one. The rooms are bigger, because you simply need more space. Some students say that these types of student rooms are less cozy, some students say that these types of rooms are more pleasant, because you have more privacy. In any case, there is something for everyone to choose from in Groningen.
