The Leeuwenborch is a recently renovated building on the south side of Wageningen Campus. It is named after the old neighbourhood that used to be situated in the area. Second only to Forum, it boasts Wageningen University’s second largest array of teaching facilities and catering establishments, as well as a branch of Library Wageningen UR.
The Leeuwenborch was designed by W.R. de Vries and built in 1974 to house the social sciences chair groups. The main design of the building incorporated a central heart linking three wings above a plateau. Under the plateau were stores and technical areas and above it were the libraries, lecture halls and a canteen.
De Leeuwenborch houses:
- Chair groups in the Department of Social Sciences.
- Social science based programmes at Wageningen University

On the main roads in Wageningen you will find signs which will direct you to different clusters of buildings (for example, building numbers 100-200). Within the various clusters, routes to the individual buildings are shown. De Leeuwenborch' s building number is 201.
