Venue for PhD ceremonies
The PhD ceremony at Leiden University usually takes place in the Senate Chamber of the Academy Building. The Great Auditorium is a possible alternative.
The Senate Chamber has room for 64 guests. If you are expecting more than 64 guests, there are two possible alternatives:
- the Senate Chamber overflow room on the ground floor of the Academy Building, with video link (this room can also be used for people who arrive late or bring small children with them).
- the Great Auditorium in the Academy Building (only in the case of more than 80 expected guests).
Tickets are not required for either room.
If you would like to reserve the Great Auditorium, contact the beadle by email, stating the date and time of your ceremony. You will receive confirmation from the Service Desk.
