Lustrum mailing
De Leidsche Flesch is 100 years old! Not quite yet, but the lustrum is coming. The lustrum committee has been established and is busy brainstorming for themes, activities and much more. Do you want to stay informed of the latest updates from the lustrum committee and provide input to the committee? Then fill in this form to receive updatemails, polls and more!

Social media
You can follow the Lustrum Committee on Instagram and LinkedIn! Besides this, you can share your lustrum ideas on the Padlet of the committee, that would be nice.

Corona buddy system

For (international) students who are in need of support during the corona situation, the university has developed a couple of services. Learn more about those on the website of Leiden University.

As a reminder

Do not come to the University if

  • you have any health symptoms that could indicate coronavirus. Stay at home and make an appointment with the GGD for a test: 0800-1202. If you also have shortness of breath and/or a fever, all the members of your household must stay at home and get tested too.
  • you have recently returned from a country with an orange or yellow travel advisory in which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises a ten-day quarantine. You must not come to the University during these ten days.

SCIENCE Buddy Programme

Are you ready to become a SCIENCE Buddy?

The SCIENCE Buddy Programme is offered to all new international students of the Faculty of Science. A SCIENCE Buddy is a current student of the Faculty of Science, who is easily approachable and can share his/her experience with our new international students. Especially during these uncertain COVID times, internationals can use a listening ear!

Being a buddy is not only a good way to learn more about different cultures, it allows you to start your international network and practice your language skills.

More info about the programme can be found here. For questions, you can contact Victor van der Horst and Tess Hoppenbrouwers (Science International Office) at
