Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are the lectures accessible to everyone?
Studium Generale is accessible to everyone. Our varied program, including lectures, films and debates, is aimed at a wide audience of students, teachers and other interested people from city and region.

2. Do I need to purchase a ticket before an event?
For most lectures we also sell tickets at the door. For students, most tickets are free. However, it may happen that a lecture is sold out at the last minute. Therefore, it is advisable to pre-order a card, because full = full.

3. I am a PhD student, can I get a free ticket?
Yes, even for PhD students, most cards are free, or you'll get a discount. Make sure you bring your student card!

4. I am a student or a high-school student, but not at the University of Groningen / Hanze University. May I go in for free?
Students from other institutions are also welcome, if you can show your student card.

5. Where are the lectures?
The program information and the ticket show the location of the event. 

6. Can I park nearby?
Many of our events are in the Academy Building. Since it is located right in the center, parking is limited. The nearest parking garage is the Ossenmarkt.
For disabled people, there are some places at the Academy Building. More information can be found here.

7. I can't go to a lecture, will it be recorded?
We record most lectures, these can be viewed through our archive or on the page of the lecture. For a recording, we depend on whether the speaker (s) gives permission, therefore it is not always possible to make a recording.

Cooperation agreements

Studium Generale Groningen is a partnership between the Hanze University Groningen and the University of Groningen. Students and lecturers at these universities are SGG’s primary target groups but outside visitors are welcome too. This mixture of various target groups makes Studium Generale events an important venue for interaction between academia and society.


Tickets can be purchased in our webshop.

Please print your e-ticket (or show it on your mobile phone) and keep it at hand together with (if applicable) your studentcard or SG-discountcard for scanning at the door. Make sure the barcode is visible. Without a visible and scannable barcode the e-ticket is invalid. Each e-ticket has a unique barcode that can only be used once.
