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