Leiden Student Life


Student life at Webster Leiden is filled with discoveries, interaction with people from all over the world, and new experiences. The Student Services team at Webster Leiden can help you make the most of being in Leiden with information on the local area, activities and events across the city!

Students at the Leiden Campus are involved in a variety of activities. Jump into The Canal- the online source of Webster news and views, join student council, play on the football team and other sports teams, realize your potential in the International Relations Club, get in the picture with fellow members of the Photo Club, attend conferences and networking events, or enjoy the Art gallery. These are just a few of the many interesting activities that make up student life at Webster, and Leiden provides the perfect backdrop for it all, with its many cafés, restaurants and museums.

Students are encouraged by both our staff and professors to develop their leadership skills as we provide them with opportunities to express themselves through whatever means best suit them. This might include joining a club to participate in, attending our Signature lectures on a variety of current affairs, or creating a piece of art to be shown at the Art gallery in the Living and Learning Center. Student life at Webster is filled with discoveries, new experiences, and interaction with people from all over the world.

The Leiden Campus plans activities throughout the year to enhance the campus community. Annual events include the Graduation Ceremony, BBQ's, Thanksgiving dinner, Holiday evenings, SGA events, European Webster football tournament, Community Service Day and others.
