Neighbourhood university

From Roomburg in Leiden to Zeeheldenkwartier in The Hague: every neighbourhood has its own activities and traditions. Does your neighbourhood have a particular question that needs answering or an activity that needs organising? We can help you organise something fun and useful for your neighbourhood.

From street parties to lectures

How about an hour to shoot your legal questions at our law students? Or a cargo bike full of games at your street party? We’d be happy to see which activities we can offer in your neighbourhood.

Which activities can you expect?

Open air theatre in Matilo Park, Leiden
In Leiden’s Roomburg there is a line that was once the Limes, the border of the Roman Empire. This line now runs under houses and weaves its way through back gardens. In Matilo Park in September 2019 you can see a musical performance by the New Utrecht Theatre Group [in Dutch] about borders in the past, present and future. Various Leiden researchers will be leading a thought-provoking discussion on the topic of ‘borders.’

International Women’s Day in the Transvaal neighbourhoud, The Hague
A day of workshops will be held at Mandelaplein community centre [in Dutch] in the Transvaal neighbourhood in The Hague on International Women’s Day (8 March). In the evening local women will be able to join in the Sheroes’ Dinner, at which inspiring female speakers from different backgrounds will take the floor. Leiden professors Ingrid Tieken an Judi Mesman will be leading a discussion on linguistic diversity in the neighbourhood. And students from Leiden University College The Hague will be discussing life in the neighbourhood with the women there.
