The house is in the city center of Groningen. However, the street itself is still quite. The house is located in a cross street of the Nieuwe Ebbingestraat, a shopping street with a lot of good restaurants and food corners. Also, the convenience store is within a 2 minute walking distance from the house. Also within 2 minutes walking distance is the most popular place to hang out in summer 'het Noorderplansoen'.
The Zernike campus is only a 7 minutes bike ride away or 10 minutes by bus.
