Will I definitely be allocated the housing I want via the university?

No, unfortunately there is limited availability of student accommodation. Leiden University therefore cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer you housing, or that you will be allocated your first choice of room/location.

Housing is allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Therefore the earlier you apply and pay your housing fee, the greater the chance that you will be allocated a room, and in your preferred location.
