“High on STUFF”

What is STUFF?

‘STUFF’ stands for ‘Studievereniging Faculteit Filosofie’ (Study Association Faculty of Philosophy). STUFF was founded in 2004 as an association for philosophy students at the University of Groningen to enhance the contact between students.

What does STUFF do?

Every year, we organise different activities, starting with the introduction period. We organise an introduction camp, as well as the mentorship. The rest of the year, we organise the studytrip, careerdays, a beer pong tournament, monthly drinks as well as many different activities. 

Additionally, STUFF facilitates the Qualia: a philosophical magazine consisting of philosophical essays, interviews and other philosophy-related texts. This is all written by our own philosophy students.

Character of STUFF

Our study has a small faculty with a sociable and open atmosphere. This characteristic is  also found in our association.  The faculty of philosophy has a great diversity of students, with many different political preferences, lifestyles and personal opinions. Our association therefore has a great diversity in activities as well, so everyone feels at home!

Becoming a member

If you are enrolled in our faculty you can become a member of STUFF. Membership costs €17.50 per year. Everyone who is a member is invited to our events, receives the Qualia and can get a discount when ordering textbooks.
You can register through the “Become a Member” heading.

Active membership

As a member of STUFF, there are several ways to get actively involved in the association. You can join committees, the Qualia and the STUFF band. The committees are responsible for organizing activities, the Qualia writes the magazine ‘Qualia’ and the STUFF-band performs at certain events. Additionally, there is the possibility to create your own activities and set up committees.


The website is meant to give general information, but if you have any specific questions you can contact our secretary (Maaike): [email protected] or our chair (Jasmijn): 06-33529618. We will be happy to help you!

With kind regards,
