New SSH labs in Sylvius Building in use from 4 September 2023

22 August 2023

On 4 September 2023, the new Sylvius SSH labs will be opened for use as part of the Social Sciences & Humanities labs. In recent months, not only the construction company but also colleagues from the relevant institutes have been working hard to make this possible on schedule.


We are delighted that this first milestone of the SSH Labs project has been achieved. With this, we are giving new impetus to the further intensification of interdisciplinary cooperation within the SSH domain. In this way, we continue to guarantee the high quality of behavioural science research.

Further development in coming months

An important part of the project is the centralisation and sharing of research infrastructure. This is also the most challenging part, where all the attention of the project team and working groups is currently focused. Its further elaboration and implementation will take place in the coming months. The official grand opening will therefore take place at a later date.

Information and availability

The first studies in the new labs will start on 4 September 2023. Researchers from the partner institutes Psychology and Education and Child Studies of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences and institutes LUCL and LUCDH of the Faculty of Humanities can also submit lab applications via labsupport-ssh@leidenuniv.nl as of September.
