Summer OWL 2021

Save the date…

30th of August until 3rd of September


How to register?

Participation in the Orientation Week Leiden is invite-based. If you are registered as an incoming student starting in September 2021, then you will receive an invitation from us. We start sending invites in June and throughout July. 

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.

We understand that it might not (yet) be possible for you to travel to Leiden, due to COVID-19 restrictions. Therefore, we are organizing both online and in-person events. In that way, everyone can get their introduction, no matter where in the world you are.

Take a look at the programme to see what is waiting for you.

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.
