Student life

Leiden is a real student city and has everything you’ll need to turn your time as a student into the time of your life.

Leiden student city

Leiden is a lively university city that’s brimming with history and boasts a student culture that’s tangible just about everywhere. Leiden is renowned for its many student associations, organised around sports, music and social clubs in addition to cultural associations. Great for socialising, they’ll also give you access to a sizeable network, which is nice to have if you’re looking for accommodation or if you want to make new friends. Thanks to its compact layout, it’s never more than a short bike ride from your accommodation to the University, and you’re more or less guaranteed to meet someone you know along the way.

"Every month, the study association organises several excursions to exhibitions or museums. This summer I will join a trip to Documenta, an exhibition of contemporary art which takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany."
