Holiday Hosting Program: Christmas dinner with international students

Over the past few years, students, teachers and professors from Leiden University have opened their homes for international students, to come and share their Christmas dinner with them. Through the Holiday Hosting Program international students get a chance to experience traditions celebrated here, while local families have the opportunity to learn more about different cultures. A great experience, as shown by the enthousiastic responses from both the hosts and the international students.

Are you an international student and are you staying in Leiden or The Hague over Christmas? You are more than welcome to sign up for the Holiday Hosting Program. Send an e-mail to the International Student Adviser Jantien Delwel. The deadline for signing up is 18 December.
