For our students, studying in The Hague can make a big difference. The Hague is proud to be known as the international city of peace and justice. The city is full of opportunity and is a fantastic student city.
The Student and Educational Affairs office helps arrange housing for first-year international students. It is not guaranteed and works on a first-come, first-serve basis. Housing is located either in the Hague or Leiden and single rooms usually cost between 350-600 euros per month, depending on the location and whether facilities are private or shared. International Studies students can choose to live in the Hague or Leiden. The classes are held in the Hague, but the towns are a short 12-minute train ride. There is also housing exclusively used for first-year Psychology students. Most rooms are singles with shared facilities and range from 360-450 euros per month. Leiden University College: LUC students are required to live on campus for the first two years of study, so housing is guaranteed. I was able to visit these rooms and they are amazing! The rooms are on the top floors of the LUC building, which is only five years old and in great condition. Most rooms are large single rooms with their own kitchenette and bathroom. There is a large floor-to-ceiling window with wonderful views of the Hague. Each floor has a shared lounge/eating area and an RA. Single rooms with private facilities cost around 560 euros a month.
