Welcome to Leiden! ISN wishes you an amazing time abroad in our lovely city. 

To help you create the experience of a lifetime, ISN Leiden is here to create your home away from home. We will help you create memories you will cherish forever and find friends you will never forget. We are the international student organization of Leiden, based on the principle of Students Helping Students. During your stay in Leiden - whether you are here for just a semester, a year, or perhaps even longer - ISN will introduce you to the Dutch culture and the Leiden student life. We organise parties, excursions, international dinners, charity initiatives, sports activities and much more. On top of that, we have our very own ESNcard, which does not only act as a membership card, but also provides you with many discounts in local bars, restaurants and other businesses. We also hand out free SIM cards so you can get connected to your new Leiden network. We are always there in case you have any questions about your life in Leiden!

We've made it our mission to help newly arrived students to find their way. This Survival Guide on our website will act as your first tool to make yourself feel at home in Leiden. It will keep expanding as we learn from your questions.

If you have any specific questions that are not listed in our categories, don't hesitate to contact us via , or stop by at the Common Room to ask your question in person.
