Campus The Hague

Leiden University has locations in two cities: Leiden and The Hague. Six of the University's seven faculties are active on the The Hague campus. The Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs is located in The Hague. By reflecting the profile of The Hague as the city of peace, security and justice, the campus is rapidly gaining recognition as a prominent international centre of academic education and research.

Organisations in The Hague

Much of the academic teaching and research in The Hague is directly related to the work of the city’s organisations and institutions engaged in peace, security and justice. These include ministries, international and European inter-government and non-government organisations, embassies, and diplomatic and legal institutions. The capital city is a place where academic knowledge and complex societal issues come together naturally. The proximity of these organisations makes The Hague an attractive city to live, work and study.

Flourishing campus life

The Hague wants to develop further into a flourishing university city. The University has much to offer the city, not only students, highly educated graduates and academic knowledge, but also a breeding ground for talent, innovation, start-ups and post-academic teaching. The further development of campus life in The Hague is therefore high on the agenda for the both the municipality of The Hague and for the University.
