3 October holiday: university closed

October 3rd is a local holiday in Leiden: the ‘Leids Ontzet’. For this reason, the university buildings are closed and there will be no lectures. This is also in effect for International Studies in The Hague.


Because of the holiday, all university buildings will be closed on October 3rd, including the University Library.

Hutspot and herring

This means you’ll have plenty of time to explore the festivities in town and try some ‘hutspot’ and herring. A  programme guide (in Dutch) is available online to download. Happy Monday!
