In January the first international students will be moving into Horizon House, Hugo de Grootstraat 32. SLS has created high quality accommodation for international students and researchers in this former Legal Study Centre. The building houses 67 student rooms and 25 one room apartments. Some units are suitable for occupation by more than one person.

The building was officially opened this week by Rector magnificus/Voorzitter of the Executive Board Douwe Breimer. He expressed how pleased he was with Horizon House, but said this this was just the start of our ambitions.

SLS Wonen is already far advanced with plans for 126 three room apartments (378 rooms) on the Sanders site. The former Elizabeth Hospital on the Hooigracht, where students were already living, will be undergoing drastic renovations.

Also – specially interesting for students who are also fans of watersports – a number of units will be created above the watersports centre in Leiderdorp.

These will be constructed on the location of the current watersport centre.
As well as SLS, the Delft company DUWO, which also provides student housing, is active in Leiden.

DUWO started in 2005 with the construction of some 500 temporary units in Rijnfront, of which a hundred are intended for foreign students.

There are also plans for a student housing complex in the Leeuwenhoek, close to LUMC and behind the Hogeschool Leiden.
