Participants can make use of two types of dormitories:

  • Shared room
  • Single room

Shared rooms are situated in a dormitory at the Smaragdlaan in Leiden, which is about 10 minutes by bus or 20-25 minutes by foot from the Central Station and the University buildings. This dormitory consists of two-person rooms. You will have to share a room with one fellow participant. The costs will be € 325,- euro per person for the whole Summer School period. Every room is furnished and has its own kitchen (including kitchenware), toilet and shower. 

Single rooms and appartments in the city centre of Leiden can only be rented for the whole month from July 16th to August 15th and cost € 525 - 595 for a single room and € 635 - 725 for an appartment.

Note that in all dormitories the number of rooms is limited, and registrations will be handled on a "first come, first-served" basis.

The prices mentioned include a set of sheets and the cleaning of the room after you have checked out.

Since we have to reserve each room separately, we have to be very strict regarding deadlines. Moreover, we need you to pay in advance. Thus, in order to guarantee a place in the dormitories, you must have registered and paid the rent for the room before 31 May 2009. After this date we will not be able to guarantee a place in the dormitories for you.

You can also try to rent a room in a student house directly through the RooFS Foundation,
