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 Introduction Day you will have the opportunity to get a buddy (whether Dutch or International). You and your buddy can attend events together arranged by Leiden United and hopefully you will find time to meet up on your own initiative.
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 4 of the big 5 associations of Leiden and once in The Hague. This means you go to Augustinus, Quintus, SSR, Catena 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 not mandatory. 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 trough 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 spring semester we have two membership options:
1) Classic membership: This membership will include everything that we have to offer. You will get access to all our online and physical events and have your own little fam of four people. Additionally, when the situation allows it again, we will have dinner at Leiden's biggest student associations and you can attend every dinner for free. You can expect up to 6 dinners, 2 drinks per dinner, membership discounts for our big events, access to our activities and a lot of fun for €35!
2) Light membership: You will get the full LU experience, except the dinners. This membership will include all of our online and physical events, membership discounts, your own little fam of four people and of course also a lot of fun for €8!
- The semester fee can be paid in the following ways:
- Transfer the €35/8,- to Leiden United bank account: NL83 RABO 0107697661.
- Pay €35/8,- cash during the OWL or the introduction day.
- Card payment of €35/8,- during the OWL or the introduction day. A transaction cost of 1.95% applies.
- If less than 4 dinners can happen, we will refund you up to 27€ of the membership fees, depending on the amount of dinners you've had, if you chose the classic membership.
