444 Years of Humanities

This year, Leiden University celebrates its 444th anniversary. Within our faculty, we are seizing this special anniversary to put the humanities in the spotlight. With for example the 444 timeline that has recently been installed in the Lipsius building, the Humanities Matter art route and the New Year’s reception that brought together students and staff members.

Faculty party

During such a special year, we of course have to throw a party for all students and staff members: 444 Years of Humanities. This party will take place on Thursday 12 September in one of Leiden’s most beautiful locations: the Stadsgehoorzaal (City Auditorium). It will furthermore be the opening of the new faculty year. Entry is free (even if you already graduated this year).


The past few months, the 444 party committee has worked diligently to put together a varied programme. The programme includes live music, workshops, lectures, a talent show, plenty of refreshments and karaoke and various DJs.

TIP: We recommend you to arrive at the beginning of the evening (walk-in from 19:00), so you won't miss out on the spectacular opening that starts when the clock strikes 19:30. The doors to the main hall will be closed during the opening ceremony.
