Scholarship information N/A
Dormitory information Student housing in Leiden and The Hague is limited. For the best chance of securing housing through the university in one of these two cities, students should ensure they pay their housing fee prior to the housing deadline of June 1 for the Fall semester, even if they have not yet been admitted to the programme. In the unfortunate case students are not admitted, the fee will be refunded.
