Floris de Knijff
Hi! I’m Floris, 21 years old and fourth-year Law student at the UG. I moved to Groningen in 2018, the year I started my studies and I’ve not regretted it ever since. I believe we can be proud of the exciting student culture we have in this city! Unfortunately, that culture is in distress. I’ve been hearing more and more about students being evicted from their houses, about landlords who believe they’re able to get away with anything and about young people coping with mental issues. These are all problems that the local government could (and should) be solving, which is not happening at the moment. Therefore, I’m excited to commit myself to a municipality which gives consideration to the 40.000 students who currently live in Groningen and make it a unique city.
