Digital Sweat Room

Do you remember that point in time when you were allowed to write your signature on the wall of Leiden University’s Sweat Room? Now you can record your signature for posterity on our 360̊ photo of the best-known room in the Academy Building.

Update 10/11/2017: Due to the success of the digital Sweat Room we are experiencing some technical difficulties. We're working hard to fix it. In the meantime, we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Just about everyone has a vivid memory of that moment, but wouldn’t it be great if you could take another look in the Sweat Room and find your own signature?  

Well, now you can in our digital Sweat Room! Take a good look around the thousands of signatures, try to spot yours and 'tag' it to show where your name can be found.   
If you’ve forgotten where your signature is, or if it’s faded over time, just put your tag in more or less the right place.

You can also take a leisurely look at all the famous names recorded in the Sweat Room, like King Willem-Alexander, Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela, and the cartoons and charcoal drawings that have been added over the centuries.
