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 University has contributed to the city’s unique atmosphere for over 400 years. The city’s historical centre is full of student associations, student accommodation and university buildings.
With its many pubs, cafés, restaurants, theatres and museums, there’s always something to do. Leiden is a winning combination of small and fun, yet big in character as a student city. Thanks to its compact layout, it’s never more than a short bike ride from your accommodation to the University, and you’ll always see someone you know along the way.

  • Sophia is Leiden Law School’s International Study Association for international students at Leiden Law School. It is the international branch of Grotius which is the Dutch Law Study Association. Sophia is derived from the Greek word ‘sophos’(σοφός), which means wisdom and was founded in the summer of 2014. Sophia’s two goals are to create more interaction between Dutch law students and international law students and to organise interesting and more intellectual minded activities for the international law students.
