Liberal Arts and Sciences: Global Challenges (BA/BSc)
Life at Leiden University College The Hague
Find your home away from home at LUC! The LUC community consists of 600 students of whom 400 - those in their first and second years - live in the college building. Approximately 45 different nationalities are represented amongst students. By interacting with your peers, learning continues outside the classroom while living at LUC. LUC's international profile creates an intercultural experience for those who wish to become responsible global citizens.
Residential Life Programme
Being a student at LUC The Hague also means being part of a community. This is why during the first two years, all students live in our building at Anna van Buerenplein.
LUC students are assigned to live in a self-contained studio of approximately 26m2 with private facilities, or a shared studio apartment (36-41 m2) with shared facilities.
Adjusting to university life and college culture can be quite a challenge. Besides the academic support, you also have access to personal and emotional support through LUC's unique Student Support System.
Student Support System
The Student Life Officer is an academic faculty member of LUC and is in charge of all residential aspects of student life and oversees the Resident Assistant team.
There is one Resident Assistant, a senior student, on each floor. They are the first point of contact for students' personal matters but are also in charge of creating a community feeling on each floor. You will quickly get to know your neighbours through the many floor dinners and events organised by the RA. Floor activities are a big part of the LUC community experience.
The Student Life Counselors are professionals who provide emotional and psychological support and are available throughout the week.
The 21 storey building includes all living and learning facilities. The first 4 floors are dedicated to academic and social life including class rooms, study areas, meeting areas, a grand café, a lounge, a roof terrace, a laundry room, a bike storage room, a soundproof room, a student-run bar and offices (for staff, faculty and students).
