The Humanities buildings: what is your opinion?

Are you satisfied with the available study facilities? What do you think of the character and design of our faculty buildings? What do you think of the meeting areas? The Faculty of Humanities invites you to share your opinion in an online evaluation.

Future Witte Singel-Doelen-complex

The WSD-complex is in need of renovation. This is why Leiden University has started research on the future of the WSD-complex. It’s not yet known to what extent the complex will be renewed, everything is still possible: from renovations to new buildings. The expected realisation date will be after your time here as student. But in order to make the right choices now, we would like to know how you, as a student, experience the WSD-complex. With your input we can build the campus of the future!
