Studium Generale

Practical Information


Almost all the Studium Generale lectures on offer are free of charge and open to everyone, including students, non-students, university, staff and people not affiliated to the university. Occasionally, a small admission fee can be charged. When this is the case, you will find information with regard to the fee together with the information about the specific lecture. For most of the activities it is possible to make a reservation. It is often fully booked. If you did not make a reservation you can come and have a look if places come available on the evening itself. This is often the case.

Lecture series

For the lecture series, you are kindly requested to register in advance and to pay the registration fee. You will receive an attendance certificate signed by the rector at the end of the lecture series. Students and university staff can get a discount on the fee. More information about registration and payment can be found at the lecture series itself.


Tongersestraat 53 and Minderbroedersberg 4-6 have parking facilities. You are allowed to park here when a Studium Generale activity takes place at one of these locations for the duration of the event. There are no charges. Please note: the parking closes at 22:00, so make sure that you leave in time!


The buildings and lecture halls are wheelchair accessible. An adjusted toilet is available as well. 


Smoking is prohibited in all UM buildings.


There is no guarded wardrobe. Studium Generale will not be liable for any loss, theft or damage of any kind.
