Places of worship

Many Leiden University buildings have a quiet room that can be used for meditation and prayer. You can request the key at the reception of the building in question.

There are many churches, faiths and religious communities represented in Leiden and The Hague.

Information on places of worship can be found on the websites of the Expat Centre Leiden and The Hague Global Outpost Service.

Leiden University also has a number of religious student associations that you are welcome to join.

Quiet room

The quiet room offers you the opportunity to be alone, find peace and quiet, let your thoughts flow or organise them.

The quiet room is open day and night.

Islamic prayer room

You can visit the Islamic prayer room day and night.


You will find the quiet room and Islamic prayer room on the second floor, above the main entrance of the LUMC. You can reach the second floor via the escalator in the main hall.
