Student associations

Student life must be one of the most exhilarating and rewarding phases in one's development. In Leiden, this experience can be enriched even further, thanks to the numerous student associations that the town boasts. Approximately half of the Dutch students are members of one of these twenty-two associations, which can be subdivided into five categories: general, religious, musical, international and sport-related. Besides having a drink with friends and participating in the various activities, the associations offer their members an opportunity to improve their social and organisational skills. Moreover, members stimulate one another in their academic career. A student association can be your home away from home, a place where you can meet Dutch students and make friends.
