Welcome at Studium Generale

Studium Generale - The public platform for knowledge & reflection of Utrecht University - organizes public events with scientists and thinkers at the interface of science and society, including lectures, talk shows and movie screenings. We pose thought-provoking questions beyond the borders of disciplines. With state-of-the art academic knowledge and reflection, we address an audience of students, professionals and other curious people. Many events are in Dutch, yet some are in English. Check out our events to see what is coming up next. Locations are in the city centre. Everyone is welcome and entrance is free!

Coronavirus: online events only

As you can understand, the rules of the game have slightly changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. This fall you need a reservation. You can make these via this website, on the specific event page or via our partners. You can reserve a seat 21 days in advance. Please note: entry procedures vary per location, such as a vaccination certificate or negative test. You can always watch at home via the livestream. And that has its advantages. From now on you can just keep your sweatpants on: who wouldn't want to become wiser at home on the couch?
