What to expect?

Orientation Week Leiden is your kickstart into a great time as a Leiden University student. During this week, we will make sure you get to know the city, your fellow students, your faculty and the rich student life that Leiden has to offer. We will welcome you with open arms and make you feel at home.

The programme will be a mix of events where you get practical and useful information that is essential to make the most out of your student life, and a lot of social activities in which you can make new friends with whom you can make that student life even greater.

I am not new to Leiden, can I be involved?

Those students that have already been studying in Leiden for a while, but still like to get the OWL experience, can become Guide or Crew. Head over to the volunteers page for more information.
