Prospective Students

Leiden Town Hall registration

Only for students living in the city of Leiden.

At the start of every semester Leiden University, in collaboration with Leiden town hall, organises registration days during which students can register as residents and be allocated a BSN (= citizen service number). Town hall registration days are held in August and September for students starting their studies in September, and in February for students starting in February.

You can schedule an appointment for one of the registration days via the online reservation system on the town hall website.

Note that the town hall reservation system will close 48 hours in advance for each time slot.

If you are from an EU/EEA country or Switzerland, please do so as early as possible. If you are from another country, please wait until we have confirmed that your residence permit application is being processed before making an appointment.

If you are not able to attend one of the collective town hall registration days in Leiden during the upcoming intake, you can schedule an individual appointment by contacting:
