Student associations

Leiden University is well known for its student associations, which provide a great way for you to get to know your fellow students. As well as parties and social events, student associations also offer excellent sporting and cultural opportunities.

Leiden student associations

Student associations are social associations. That is to say membership is not based on a particular field of study, interest or background. Despite this, each association has its own particular identity. You can experience this best during the EL CID introduction week or during the various ‘open weeks’ throughout the year.
