History

Fortuna is the official Students’ Association of Leiden University College the Hague and was established as a legal association on 16th May 2011. Since then, Fortuna has grown to include over thirty committees, each of which is dedicated to expanding and improving student life at LUC.

Leiden University College the Hague is a residential college and its students and staff form a close, international community which is unprecedented at Leiden University. Fortuna has been founded to facilitate and enrich the community and the personal lives of students. Students are automatically part of the association and can thus share in and contribute to making LUC an attractive place to live and study. Every year, hundreds of students invest in this community, some by being active in committees, others through their participation during events. This website is an expression of that interaction. It highlights not only the events and activities organised by Fortuna committees, but also brings together the many voices and opinions and colors that are shared in this community.
