If you come to work by car, you can apply for a parking subscription for one of Leiden University’s parking areas. The subscription is simply added to your LU Card. You can then use your LU Card to access the parking area.

Request or extend parking subscription

Pay for your parking subscription and change your details via the ‘Parking subscription’ tile in the Service Portal.


How it works

  1. Go to the Service Portal and log in with your ULCN account
  2. Click on the Parking subscription tile
  3. Choose an annual or monthly subscription and enter your license plate.
  4. Choose a parking location. You get automatic access to all parking areas within your zone. Do you want access to parking areas in other zones? Below you can read about the options.
  5. Choose how you want to pay. You can pay via iDeal or with your credit card. If you pay online before 11 p.m., the changes will already take effect the following day. 
  6.  The subscription will be added automatically to your LU-Card. No further action is required. If you don’t have one yet, please apply for an LU Card here.
  7. After your payment has been successfully completed, you will receive a confirmation, including an invoice, via your work email.


A parking subscription costs €15,50 per month. The costs for an annual subscription are €155,-.

Refund of parking subscription

If you have an annual subscription and your Leiden University employment ends (for reasons of discharge, illness or pregnancy) at least two months before the end of your subscription, you can apply for a refund.


Two weeks before your subscription expires you will receive an e-mail inviting you to renew your subscription via the Service Portal. Please note that this option is only possible one month before your subscription ends.

Automatic access to multiple parking areas

You can only choose one parking location in the Service Portal. However, once you have a parking subscription, you automatically have access to all the parking areas within your zone. For example, if you have a parking subscription for the Rijnveste parking garage, you will also automatically have access to the parking area at the Willem Einthoven building. 

Three parking zones

Boerhaave zone
Access to Rijnveste parking garage and parking area Willem Einthoven building
Leeuwenhoek zone
Access to Gorlaeus parking garage and parking areas Gorlaeus Schotel, Niels Bohrweg, Ehrenfestweg, University Sports Centre
Centre zone
Access to parking garages Maliebaan South and Maliebaan North

Access to multiple parking zones

If you need access to multiple parking lots in different zones for your commute, you can request this through the work-work parking application form. However, first check if you may already have access to the requested parking area. If the same parking zone applies, then you already have access to that parking area. Access to multiple zones is only possible if you have an active subscription.

Parking for guest staff members

Guest staff members who are affiliated with Leiden University for a longer period of time can park at one of the university’s parking facilities. A LU-Card is required for a parking subscription. If you do not have a LU-card, you can request a parking subscription in the following way:

  1. Complete the LU Card Right of Access to Parking Form.
  2. Print the completed form, hand it in at the service desk of the WSD (Witte Singel Doelen Complex), Pieter de la Court or the Gorleaus building and pay directly by debit cardA parking subscription costs € 15.50 (incl. VAT) per month. If you choose an annual subscription, you pay € 155 (incl. VAT). 
  3. The Service desk will forward your request to the Real Estate department.
  4. You will receive a message when your request has been processed. This usually takes at least one working day.
