Via Leiden University Housing Office
The Housing Office can help you to find a room or apartment in the Leiden or The Hague area.
Provisionally full - Fall semester 2019
8 April 2019: Due to limited availability and a large number of applications, all accommodation via Leiden University Housing Office is (provisionally) full for the semester starting September 2019. You may still submit a housing application, but will be placed on a waiting list and only allocated a room if another student withdraws. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We advise you to broaden your search and start looking for your own accommodation, for example by registering with Room.nl and reading our tips on finding housing yourself.
Notice for spring semester 2019
Are you still looking for housing for this semester? The Housing Office still has single studios available at Enthovenplein in The Hague. Contact the Housing Office for details.
Who can apply for assistance
You can request assistance from Leiden University Housing Office if you are an international student and will follow one of the following programmes at Leiden University:
• Bachelor programme
• Master programme
• Exchange or Study Abroad programme
• Pre-sessional English course
Availability and allocation
There is limited availability of student accommodation, therefore the Housing Office unfortunately cannot guarantee accommodation to all students who submit a request. Rooms are allocated on a first-come first-served basis, according to the date on which you pay the housing fee.
If the Housing Office is unable to offer you a room, and you are unable to find housing yourself, you are strongly advised not to come to Leiden University. Consider deferring your studies to allow yourself more time to find a place to stay.
