Student Support Groups

As a student of Leiden University, you can join a Student Support Group to build your social connections and learn more about yourself.

Student support groups are a safe, confidential space in which you can learn, share and connect with other students. Join one of the groups and contribute to the conversation on the basis of your own experiences together with 7 fellow students and a student-guide.


Our next series of student support groups will start in the week of 31 October 2022.
Sessions take place once a week for six consecutive weeks.

How to join

You can sign up for one or more student support groups via this online form.

Deadline to sign up

The deadline for signing up for the upcoming support groups is 13 October 2022.

Upcoming student support groups

  • Well-being support group: Meet with fellow students to talk about personal growth and well-being.
  • Study support group: Get together with other students to study, whatever your faculty, programme or field of study. 
  • Meeting point support group (new): For first-generation students, refugee students, and students from Suriname or the Caribbean region who could use a little help finding their way within the university and in the Netherlands. 
  • PhD candidates support group (new): Meet other PhD students to talk about mental well-being and to share experiences and challenges. 
  • 30+ student support group (new): for students who decided to attend or re-join university a little later in life. Share experiences such as juggling responsibilities and being that little bit older than your classmates.
