Where in Leiden?

The Institute of Psychology is housed in our Social and Behavioural Sciences Faculty building together with the other Social Sciences institutes. The Institute is within walking distance of the Leiden Central railway station. If you travel by train, a 5-minute walk will take you from the back of the station to the Pieter de la Court building

Housing for International Students

If you study in Leiden, you can choose to live in a student room. Although we cannot guarantee a room for you, we can certainly help you find a room for your first year if you come from abroad and do not have the Dutch nationality. The Housing Office will act as a go-between on your behalf. If you need our help, it is important that you enrol early, and pay the housing fee as soon as possible.

Testimonial Arrianna Berardi

I really like the international environment, the students for IBP have backgrounds in many different countries. I learn a lot from the other cultures. In Leiden there is a really good vibe and a good atmosphere. You can easily get around in the city by bike, or even walk. There are always many things going on, I like it!
