Lent is a village in the Dutch province of Gelderland. It is located in the municipality of Nijmegen, about 2 km north of that city, on the north bank of the Waal river.

Lent was a separate municipality until 1818, when it was merged with Elst.[1]

Lent has a large influx of foreign students studying abroad at Radboud University Nijmegen living in a facility (Griftdijk) run by the Short Stay Housing Nijmegen (SSHN).
