Facts and figures

In order to be able to monitor the University’s achievements and provide internal and external accountability, the University makes use of a number of reports, both standard and customised.

A selection of these reports are published via the University’s key figures and annual report. These reports, which are publicly available, contain information on the most important indicators in the field of teaching, research, personnel and finances. Consult the most recent figures (Dutch only)>> 

Internally available reports

Not all reports are publicly available. If you are looking for figures that you cannot find in the key figures or the annual report, please consult e-Reports. E-Reports are the University management information system.

In addition to e-Reports, a number of reports can be accessed in a different way. For more information, please contact the administrative information service department via cijfers@bb.leidenuniv.nl.
