Sociëteit Novum (also known as Wolbodo) can be rented for parties or celebrations! Mainly we want to open our hall for students, student organizations and (former) members of Wolbodo, but also if you don't belong to this group, renting is possible.

You can rent the hall on Friday and Saturday evenings from 20:00 to 03:30. The hall has a capacity of 110 people. The hall cannot be rented during the months of July and August.


You can make a reservation by emailing Please indicate the following in your mail:

  • Who is making the reservation.
  • The reason for renting the hall (e.g. a graduation party).
  • How many people you expect.
  • When you want to rent the hall.
  • Your contact information (mail/phone number).

Once the mail has reached us, Wolbodo will contact you. We will explain the details and that you have to sign a contract. Renting the hall is 200 euros. If more than 70 people are expected, it will cost an additional 40 euros. This is because then we have to provide a door man in addition to bar staff. We would like to receive the 200 or 240 euro rent as a deposit no later than 2 weeks before we start renting the hall. The deposit can either be paid in cash or transferred.
