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 compact, safe, and 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.

Archaeology student association L.A.S. Terra

L.A.S. Terra is the study association for all archaeology students in Leiden. Terra is subdivided into different societies for each of the different specialisms in the programme. 

Every 3rd Thursday of the month, a drinks reception is held in the Van Steenis building. Terra also organises several great archaeology parties for students throughout the year. As most of the students are a member of one of the societies and thus of Terra, being a member of Terra is a great way to quickly get to know your fellow students.
