Ticket reservations during the corona measures
Because of the corona measures, from September 2020 onwards, we will offer our programme in a venue on campus and/or online via livestream. In many cases both. 

  • The number of visitors that we can offer a seat iat the venue on campus is limited due to RIVM measures. Reservations via the website are now mandatory if you want to attend the programme at the venue.
  • In most cases you do not have to make a reservation for the programs that are streamed live online. However, for some online programs you do need to reserve a ticket. On the relevant program info page on this website you will find where you can view the livestream and if you need to make a reservation or not.

How to reserve your ticket when you want to attend a program at the venue

  • Choose a program
  • Click the button ‘Order tickets’
  • Complete your personal details
  • Pay (if applicable) through iDeal (the site will connect you to your bank)
  • Don’t forget to confirm your payment

  • Make sure to keep your booking confirmation ready (on your smartphone or on paper) for inspection at the entrance to the hall.
  • If you booked as ‘student’, don’t forget your student card.
