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 24,500 students and 5,500 staff members (including the academic staff of the Leiden University Medical Center) in seven faculties of archaeology, humanities, law, medicine, mathematics and natural sciences, and social and behavioural sciences.
