The city is Leiden's "campus", as befits the institution's status as a gift to the citizens by William of Orange in 1575 for withstanding a siege by the Spanish. It has some 17,000 students and 4,000 academic staff in six faculties of archaeology, humanities, law, medicine, mathematics and natural sciences, and social and behavioural sciences.
