Welkom bij Ad Fundum

We're currently working hard on providing a Dutch & English version of this website. If you have any questions, contact us.



Diving became a popular sport and that is not without reason. The feeling of weightlessness, being active outside, the adventure in a completely different world where remarkable species live in alien landscapes. All reasons why people go diving.

Who are we?

The Groninger Studenten Duik Club (Groningen Student Divers Association) Ad Fundum is a diving club for students from Groningen. Our organization is open for everyone who studies at the Hanze University or Univesity of Groningen. Ad Fundum was founded in 1973 in order to make diving possible for students by giving dive training, making diving material available and organizing (dive) events; all of this considering the student budget.

Learn to dive?

Would you like to get to know the underwater world but do you miss a divers license? No problem! At Ad Fundum you can get all licenses up to the 3* CMAS license. You don’t have to pay for your education, only for your instruction book. This is made possible by our own instructors who like to teach diving for fun. It is even possible to grow towards becoming an instructor yourself!

Our club

Next to the many dive weekends, the pool training is the backbone for our social life. Every Monday evening we have our training sessions. After the training, people usually go for a beer in our usual bar. Besides this we have an extended agenda throughout the year with fun, relaxing, exciting and / or educational events.

Introduction dives

Do you want to experience what it is to dive? You can enlist for an introduction dive during a Monday evening. You start with a lecture about what it is to dive, how to dive safely, and we will tell you something about our club. After the lecture you will actually dive underwater with one of our experienced instructors. And after your dive? Don’t go away yet as we are going to have a beer at our regular bar to exchange bold (dive) stories.


If you still have remaining questions, you can use our contact page to post them. In order to become a member, in order to unsubscribe as a member of in order to make mutations in your subscription, please go to our member pages.

Transportation? No problem!

Finally, in our most recent club meeting we decided to acquire our own means of transportation so you will not be dependent on your parents’ car or a rental vehicle. This makes diving really at armlength!
