What is HI The Hague?

HI The Hague is the citywide introduction period for all students in The Hague, organized for and by students in cooperation with various educational institutions, student (sport) organizations and the municipality of The Hague. In 2022, more than 4,500 students participated in one of the 15 HI The Hague activities. This year we will make something great again! This is the program to make friends, get to know the city and start your studies in a unique way.

All HI The Hague Events are available to both Dutch-speaking and International students. The language of our events is English, but there are always Dutch- speaking chaperones (students) present. There is only one event with an age restriction, this is the Clubhopping party on Saturday 2 September 2023 (18+). All other events are available to any student (with a ticket).
