Hi guys,

I'm Paula (21). I have apply fot a Master in Leiden University on Sept 2012. Is mostly sure I'll be there in September too. 

Do you know something about how to find residences and which is the best one?

What do you study? I have done a degree in Art History and in Leiden I'll be doing a Master caller "Arts and Culture". What about you?

Federico: io ho fatto l' erasmus a Roma, tu di dove sei??! :)

See you soon!

Ciao Paula,
io sono di Napoli e studio inglese e spagnolo alla Federico II.. Tu invece di dove sei? Come ti sei trovata a Roma? 

Hasta pronto! 

Ciao Federico!

Io sono di Barcellona ma questo hanno ho fatto un Erasmus a Roma, studiando Storia dell' Arte a la Sapienza, da settembre 2011 a febraio 2012. È stato fantastico! Se ci vediamo a Leiden vedrai come studiare a l'estero è une delle cose piu belle che si può fare!

Io mi sono laureta a febbraio ma adesso voglio fare un Master a Leiden. Non è ancora sicuro perche sto aspettando che mi dicono se mi acettano o no... Asperiamo di si! E debo fare anche l'esame d'inglese... Sarebbe bello incontraci lì, così possiamo fare intercambio italiano-spagnolo!

Sai gia come fare per trovare casa/residenza? Io ho cheisto a l'università di aiutarmi, ma non mi hanno detto ancora niente.

Ci sentiamo!


Hi Paula :)

I'll be studying at Leiden too, doing an exchange with my university (sydney) .. I'll most likely be doing Psychology and Anthropology subjects.

I have no idea which housing is the best.. i've been contemplating which ones to put as my preferences...

Kaarsenmakersstraat and Herengracht look nice.

Hi, I'm Ugnė and I'm gonna be in Leiden for first semester next year doing Art History :)

And I am also confused about all the accommodations possible. Any suggestions?

Labas Ugne,
I'm also looking for the accomodation. I suggest you (if you have facebook) the group "LEIDEN HOUSING". A lot of guys share their offers and you can choose. :)
I also found another website, called, and you need to register. 
Hope to be helpful! Iki!

Hi Ugne :)

not long now :)

Hi guys! I hace look for accomodation througth the site of Leiden university and I have applied for a room in a residence called "Hugo de groostraat".

This is the link:

It has rooms and also "appartments" with bathroom and kitchen included!

Anyone else is thinking to go to a residence? Or are you looking for flats to sahre?

UGNE: Welcome! I study Art History too! :)

Hi Paula, I have applied for a room through that website too :)

I also applied for "Hugo de groostraat"  - alongside "Kaarsenmakersstraat" and "Herengracht". So I might end up living in the same residence as you! :)

When are you guys arriving in Leiden?

Hi, I'm Shao Wei, just Shao for my friends!

I'm still looking for an accomodation, but I don't have lot of luck... 
Anyway, nice to meet you :)
