HOP 2021 Updates

This page contains the latest updates around HOPweek 2021 and is updated regularly. We thank all our prospective volunteers and participants in advance for their patience. 


  • As usual, HOP takes place in the second to last week before the new academic year. This year that is the week of 23-27 August.

  • Currently, HOP is working on several scenarios, each in consultation with Leiden University, the municipality of The Hague and in accordance with the measures of the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and Environment) and the Dutch Government. Exactly in what form HOP will take place, depends on the measures in August. 

  • We understand that physical days are the best way to start life in a new city, both for our participants and our volunteers. Therefore we strive to offer a hybrid program, with both online and offline events. Taking in mind naturally that some new students will not have the ability to physically be in The Hague.
