About us

RAPENBURG100 - originated from the Leiden Students Ekklesia (LSE) - invites you to spend time on your personal development. RAPENBURG100 stimulates you not only to use your head and brain, but also to pay ample attention to your heart and soul. At RAPENBURG100 there is room to ask and answer questions, use your imagination, connect with yourself, others and the world, find depth and realize your dreams and ambitions in life and career.

You lay a foundation with your studies. During a board year, through an art project, a social or ideological initiative, you make the difference. This is possible at RAPENBURG100:

  • You increase your self-awareness and take care of yourself through different forms of meditation and (in-depth or monastery) weekends.
  • You learn to use your personal story to further develop yourself and make choices that suit you.
  • You approach contemporary society with an open mind and meet people from different social layers and with different perspectives during excursions. You expand your mind with our meals and groups.
  • For your board or committee, there are training courses that help you further in the field of team cooperation, dealing with conflicts, communication, vision and motivation.

Come by, taste the atmosphere or follow a training. You are most welcome!

Rapenburg100 is supported by Fonds1818.

This is the association of 'participants' of the Ekklesia: former students, university employees and other broad believers. Every Sunday there is a religious celebration in the Hooglandse Kerk at 11.45 am with special attention to music and space for critical reflection on life and social themes. During the week you can go for lectures on topics such as sustainability, compassion, a meaningful career, faith and art. Activities are freely accessible.

Activities of the student chaplaincy of RAPENBURG100 are (co-)financed by:
Universiteit Leiden
Leiden University of Applied Sciences
Protestant Church Netherlands

And by various other funds

Eating together is food for the spirit
