Introduction day for new staff members (in Dutch)

Wednesday 12 February 2020
Rapenburg 73
2311 GJ Leiden

Perhaps you already know that the university has 7 faculties, about 4,000 staff members and more than 20,000 students. But do you also know where the motto ‘Praesidium Libertatis’ comes from? Or what the Sweat Room is and where it is located? Do you know what current issues the university is occupied with? The introduction day for new employees is your opportunity to really get to know the university.


The Executive Board considers it important not only that you become familiar with your new workplace, but that you also learn about the ambitions and traditions of the oldest university in the Netherlands. This is why an introduction day is organised each year for new employees. The following topics are on the programme for this event:

  • university history
  • current direction and future developments
  • a speed date with your new colleagues
  • a guided tour along the university’s most beautiful buildings
