What Can You Expect?
As a part of the program, you can first look forward to an Introduction Day to meet your fellow club members. This day is full of activities, food, drinks, and socializing. During the semester you will be placed in a small group: the fam. With this group it is, hopefully, possible to meet up in person and explore Leiden together.
When signing up for Leiden United, you will be part of a group consisting of both Dutch and international students. Together you will dine at the 6 big associations of Leiden and once in The Hague. This means you go to Augustinus, Quintus, SSR, Catena, Minerva and DAC. There you can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and get an exclusive look inside the societies. As a Leiden United member you are not only allowed to enter the restaurant, you will also get a tour in the building and have a drink afterwards. Besides that, from this year on a couple of the societies open their doors for our members to parties. All is included in the membership fee.
We have monthly drinks, parties and events. A lot of associations ask a mandatory presence of their members at social drinks. Our drinks are absolutely without obligation. In this way you can easily adapt Leiden United to your own schedule. Of course, we would love to see you during the activities, of which there will be a great variety: from cultural tours through cities, to a themed party or an excursion to the famous flower fields. Join us and relish your time spent studying in Leiden!
- There are two opportunities to sign up, at the beginning of the fall semester and at the beginning of the spring semester. This means that the program runs per semester and not per year as is often the case. This is especially chosen for international students who will only attend Leiden University for one exchange semester. Of course you can renew your membership after the end of every semester if you are staying for a longer period of time.
- For the upcoming fall semester the membership will look like this:
You will get access to all our online and physical events. Additionally, when the situation allows it again, we will have dinners in groups at Leiden's biggest student associations and you can attend every dinner for free. You can expect up to 7 dinners, 2 drinks per dinner, membership discounts for our big events, access to our activities and a lot of fun for €45!
- The semester fee can be paid through:
2. Paying the €45,- through cash to our treasurer during the Introduction week or LU introduction day.
3. Online card payment (debit card, credit card, PayPal, Sofort, iDEAL, Bancontact) of 45 EUR (including 1,56 processing fee) through this link:
- In case of dinner cancellations due to Corona, you will have the right to apply for a refund. The refund will be calculated based on the amounts of dinners that have been cancelled.
