How do I apply for housing?

You can apply through the housing website by filling out the online application form. In order to receive a housing offer a housing fee is required which can be paid online. The Housing Office allocates accommodation on a ‘first come first served’ basis. The earlier we receive your housing fee, the greater your chance of being offered a room and one that matches your housing preferences.

Application deadline
The deadline for applying for housing is 1 June for programmes starting in September and 15 November for programmes starting in February.

Limited availability 
Student accommodation is limited and therefore Leiden University is unable to guarantee housing. There is a chance that we will offer you a room in The Hague if nothing is available in Leiden. It takes roughly 15 minutes by train to commute from The Hague to Leiden.
