About UM - Service Centres - Student Services Centre

Student Services Centre

Maastricht University’s Student Services Centre (SSC) helps students with a wide range of issues related to studying and student life. This includes topics such as application, registration, tuition fees and diploma recognition, but you can also contact the SSC for legal advice on a study related issue, career advice or advice from a psychologist. In addition to providing students with help, the SSC supports several organisations that organise extracurricular activities, such as the INKOM, the sports council MUSST and Studium Generale.

What the SSC has to offer

The SSC is the place to be for an introduction to Maastricht University and to find answers to any questions you may have. Current and prospective students, parents, alumni, and anyone else who is interested are warmly welcomed. The UM Student Desk is the common point of contact for various university services, particularly student services. But the SSC is not only open for questions. There is also a reading table with newspapers and magazines. For a delicious cup of coffee, sweets or lunch have a seat at Coffeelovers. And for the real fans we have the UM gift shop. Sweaters, pens, bags, T-shirts and coffee mugs; you will find the best items. In short: a convenient, friendly and dynamic point, especially for you, with WiFi.

Unfortunately, housing is scarce for students, so be sure to start your search for a room as soon as possible. That means well before you come to Maastricht or Venlo. Make sure to read these tips and warnings.
