Lepidoptera is the Study Union for all students enrolled in the Informatica and Information Technology courses at Inholland University of Applied Sciences

What we do

Coding assistance

Stuck while programming? Unsure what your next Line of Code should be? With our alumni and current students, working in various parts of the industry, there’s always someone that might know the answer to your question.

Every person has their strengths and if a certain part of a project just isn’t your cup of tea, you can always ask your fellow Lepi’s to take a look at your design, database or code. Maybe they can help you upgrade your current solution or you’ll find out you came up with something ingenious yourself.


While your classes will provide you with the basic and intermediate skills you’ll need to successfully start your carreer in IT, there is so much more that a university course just cannot cover in the four years you’re enrolled. But don’t worry, we got you.

Through Lepidoptera’s network of IT professionals and companies, we try to set up the most interesting masterclasses on various subjects. Whether it’s a masterclass on modern approaches to quick mobile app development or one on rapid prototyping, you can be sure to learn some useful skills here.

Social events

Done with your homework? Through with staring at your code compile? Don’t forget to kick back every once in a while and relax. Come grab a drink with us at the university’s pub and have some fun. Don’t forget a student’s life should be a fun one.

Networking is an important skill for modern IT professionals and we’re not talking about the kind dealing with cables and Wi-Fi. Luckily Lepidoptera is always looking to help you here by setting up social events where you can connect with your fellow students and alumni.

Members of the Board

Kayleigh Vossen


“Hi, I’m Kayleigh and I’m 23 years old. I rolled into IT by accident but I’m very happy I did.

I joined Lepidoptera in 2016, I became secretary in 2017 and chairman in 2018.  Since then I have put my efforts towards involving international students.
This year you’ll see more about that, and other ways we’re trying to improve your student life!

You won’t see me in our pub every week, but I’m still up for a party every few weeks.
If you need me, I’m often found online.”


Obi Omary


“Hey there,

My name is Obaidah but you can call me Obi. I’m 21 years old and I’m doing IT. (Probably as you are too) I joined Lepidoptera in September of 2019 and I’m the treasurer!

If you don’t see me around the university, you can reach me online or you can give me a call. Always down to help out if you need it”

Suzanne Koopman


“Hi hi!

I’m Suus, 19 years old and a first year Informatica student who started at Inholland in february 2019. I’m currently holding the title of Secretary.

IT flows through the veins of my whole family, so it was kind of a nobrainer what I was going to study.

When I’m not behind a display, you’ll find me on the tennis court or either end of our pub’s bar!”
