Accessibility is one of the priorities of our D&I policy. It is not only about physical accessibility of the university buildings, but also digital accessibility. Are you a student with a disability? Fenestra Disability Centre offers help and support. Staff members with a disability can go to their supervisor, Human Resources advisor and the university HR coaches (coacheshealthyuniversity@bb.leidenuniv.nl or 071 527 3193).

Combating sexual harassment

Leiden University aims to ensure a safe learning and working environment. Sexual harassment has no place in our university community. Read more about it in the Sexual harassment brochure. If you want to report sexual harassment, you can do so with the student psychologists (psychologen@sea.leidenuniv.nl) and the confidential counselors (vertrouwenspersoon@bb.leidenuniv.nl).
