Stay connected

Leiden University offers various services that you as an alumnus or alumna can take advantage of. We are keen on staying in touch with our alumni and would like to keep you up to date with the latest news about the University and its activities.


As a Leiden University alumnus there are various services that you can use even after graduation. You will find an overview of our alumni services here.

Update your information

Leiden University would like to stay in contact with its alumni. That is why we try to keep contact info up to date, but we would also like to stay informed about where you are working after graduation and how your career is progressing.

Alumni Newsletter

Alumni can sign up for Leiden University’s alumni newsletter to keep up to date with what’s happening in the University.


Three times per year Leiden University publishes alumni magazine Leidraad. Leidraad is a publication of the Development & Alumni Relations Department of Leiden University and is sent to all Dutch speaking alumni of the university, free of charge.

Mentor Network

Leiden University is keen to give young alumni a good start to their career. The knowledge and experience of more senior Leiden alumni can help them with the questions they have and the choices they face. An online mentor network has been set up to make this exchange possible.

Young Alumni Network

The Young Alumni Network is specifically for young alumni (35 years and younger) living in the Netherlands, who have recently graduated and are at the start of their career. As a young alumnus you have different needs than when you are settled in your career path or when your career is drawing to a close.
