LmunA offers a housing programme for attending delegates. Although we are limited in the number of housing placements we can offer, international delegations will have the highest priority. Please note, though, that we cannot guarantee housing.
During registration, please indicate whether you would like to make use of our housing programme. Please make sure to register before the deadline of June 6 so that we can take inventory of housing requests accordingly.
If you are provided with housing, there will be an additional fee of €7,50 per delegate. Sadly, we cannot provide housing for MUN Directors. After registration our Head of Housing will contact you in order to register any special needs (e.g. diets or allergies). For delegations that will not be housed by our organisation, we have a list of suggested places to stay.
LmunA is an abbreviation for Lorentz Model United Nations Arnhem. We are a non-profit organization, run and organized by students of the Lorentz Lyceum in Arnhem.
LmunA is a three-day conference, during which high school students from the Netherlands and other countries will engage in a simulation of the United Nations. They will represent countries and NGOs from around the world whom they will represent during LmunA. In committees, councils and assemblies they will debate relevant topics, similar to those in the United Nations.
In line with the principles of the United Nations, delegates will engage in debates, lobbying, resolution writing demonstrating the perspective of their assigned country. By doing so, they will improve their overall skills of writing and public speaking, and they will learn about the world at large. LmunA has something to offer for newcomers and experienced delegates alike, but we pride ourselves for being a conference that caters towards the needs of those starting out in the world of MUN. LmunA has an open, friendly atmosphere, and the conference offers workshops geared towards beginning delegates to ensure confident delegates and engaged debates.
THIMUN Affiliated Conference
The Lorentz Lyceum is an internationally orientated school where students are encouraged to become world citizens.
The Lorentz Lyceum is named after Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, a famous physicist who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1902, for the discovery and explanation of the Zeeman Effect. He was born in Arnhem and he lived there for most of his life, which is why the school is named after him.
The Lorentz Lyceum is a school with many opportunities for its students. Other than providing the regular Dutch education in various levels, the school also offers a bilingual programme. They started in 1992, being one of the first schools in the Netherlands offering this opportunity. The students following the bilingual programme visit various foreign countries throughout the years. They also receive the unique chance to participate in special projects, cultural programmes, exchange visits and MUN conferences!
Address: Groningensingel 1245, 6835 HZ Arnhem
Arnhem is situated in the eastern part of the Netherlands. It is the capital of the province Gelderland and located near the river Rhine, which gives the city a unique character. Arnhem is very well known for playing a part in the Second World War. In World War II, during Operation Market Garden in 1944, the British and Polish army were given the task of securing the bridge at Arnhem, now known as the John Frost bridge. The British and Polish troops suffered from attacks from the Germans, and on September the 21st in 1944, the allied forces surrendered. These events were dramatised in the 1977 movie `A Bridge too far`.

Arnhem has unique opportunities to have fun with friends or to visit cultural and historical monuments. For everyone there is something to do. All the activities are located in Arnhem and the cities surrounding, so it is easy for you to reach.
