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!


As you can understand, the rules of the game have slightly changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. But new relaxations came into effect, starting september 25th. As was usual for Studium Generale events before corona, you can now attend our events without booking tickets. You still have to register for events in TivoliVredenburg, and can do so via the link in the agenda. Furthermore, for all events, the legal obligation applies that you must show a coronavirus entry pass at the entrance, i.e. a proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or negative test result. The coronavirus entry pass can be shown via the CoronaCheck app or on paper.

Of course, you can always watch from you home via the livestream as well. That, too, has its advantages: you can just keep your sweatpants on, becoming wiser and wiser while sitting at home on the couch.
