Lecture Hall

Modernising an iconic Leiden University building
This round 'dish' on the west side of of the Campus Square houses the university's largest lecture halls. Hundreds of students from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences attend lectures here on a daily basis. The building also has the largest solar panel roof in Leiden, with 1241 solar panels.



From the summer of 2022, this building from the 70s has undergone a major renovation. This was done in parts, so that education could continue. In the new academic year of 2023 there will be a completely renewed dish with better insulation and more modern lecture halls. The entrance has also been moved, so that it now connects nicely with the Campusplein. A wide, inviting staircase leads to the first floor.

Furthermore, the building has a new balcony ring, with seating on the balcony edge, and a new conservatory. In the summer of 2024, the restaurant will also be modernized.
The Lecture Hall Building has now a connection to the new ATES (Heat and Cold Storage) system, in order to be able to heat and cool sustainably.
