LUC starts the academic year at its new College Building: the Anna van Buerenplein
Monday 26 August 2013 marks Leiden University College (LUC) The Hague’s fourth academic year in its new and permanent location: the Anna van Buerenplein. Having spent the first three years at the Lange Voorhout, LUC is delighted to be located next to the City Centre, The Hague Central Station, several ministries, the Royal Library and Malieveld.
The first residents of the Anna van Buerenplein (AvB) have already been welcomed during their Introduction Week from 19 August till 23 August. Out of a pool of many applicants LUC has selected 200 new students, with 26 different nationalities, to be the Class of 2016. Together with the other cohorts, LUC students will continue and contribute to the global citizenship of LUC and the City of The Hague in the Anna van Buerenplein.
The AvB will ensure a great sense of community as LUC students will be able to live and study under one roof. Students will be able to enjoy LUC’s small scale education concept in a more spacious building with many classrooms, an auditorium, common areas and a grand café. Sustainability is important to both LUC The Hague and the City of The Hague. This resulted that the highest standard of nature friendly materials were used for the interior, expressing the importance of sustainability to all visitors and inhabitants of the Anna van Buerenplein.
The official opening of the Anna van Buerenplein will take place on Thursday 31 October but for now we would like to welcome all students and staff (back) to LUC!
