What is Living in Leiden?

Living in Leiden (LiL) is an official Stichting (non profit foundation) which was founded in 2014 in Leiden. Our mission is to make Leiden a more interesting place to live and work or study by assisting Internationals who either have plans to come to our city or who already live here. LiD offers support with basic needs for when you are preparing your move to Leiden, when you first arrive and during your time living here.

We are here for everyone – whether you are a professional or student, single or a family. LiD organises social events in Leiden to and keeps you up to date with what’s going on, to make it easier to connect with other Internationals – as well as some of the “locals”. Overall we’re keen to help you make the most of your time here in this amazing city!
