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!

Our coronavirus policy

Good news: due to the changes in corona regulations we can welcome you all again at our events. You only need to reserve a (free) ticket for the events in the Pandora and Cloud Nine at TivoliVredenburg. This is possible from 21 days before the program via our website. In all other rooms in TivoliVredenburg and at all other locations, a reservation is no longer necessary (unless stated otherwise) and you can just drop by. Note: first come first serve. If you want to be assured of a seat, be on time.

For visitors who prefer not to join large groups or who do not want to travel, we have a livestream available. Of course we want to give you the possibility to share your questions and comments. We can continue with that online. Ask your question in the YouTube live chat and we'll make sure it gets to the speaker in the room.
