The Hague student city

The Hague is the Netherlands’ fastest-growing student city, offering great studying and career opportunities to students from all over the world.

Upcoming student city

The Hague has been Leiden University’s second location since September 2010. In the meantime, six of the seven Leiden University faculties in The Hague Campus are now active there. The Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs is completely and exclusively located in The Hague.

Leiden’s big brother

As the Netherlands’ third city, The Hague is a lot bigger than Leiden. Yet all the university buildings are within walking distance of one another in the city centre. Do you have to travel to Leiden regularly? No problem, it’s just 11 minutes away

International character

Our The Hague Campus boasts a wide range of internationally oriented programmes that attract students from all over the world. Studying in The Hague broadens your perspective on the world and quickly gives you an international network. Studying in a city full of embassies, multinationals and international courts certainly has its advantages!

Close cooperation between education, business and politics

The Hague is the beating heart of Dutch politics. And in addition to housing the Netherlands’ ministries and government bodies, many big companies are also headquartered there. Plenty of internship opportunities then. And in our The Hague Campus you can follow lectures given by professionals from the real world.

Beach in your backyard

Fancy catching some rays, or just chilling by the sea? With 11 kilometres of beaches almost in your backyard it’s not difficult to conjure up that holiday feeling in The Hague. And in the summer there are some great beach parties going on there.

Sights for sore eyes

If you have spare time on your hands, there is so much to see in The Hague. Such as the Peace Palace, the Mauritshuis, Noordeinde Palace, the Binnenhof, Madurodam and the Pier.

Going out

Finished an exam, or just feeling the urge to let your hair down after a hard day’s studying? In The Hague you’ll find plenty of places where you can do just that. Like Millers or Danzig on the square, for example, or you can go with friends to Paard van Troje (Trojan Horse), a celebrated local pop temple near the Grote Markt. And remember, Thursday evening is student evening.
