Order your tickets

Please book your tickets for lectures, shows and workshops via this website

To attend our lectures, concerts, performances, films, and workshops it is in most cases necessary to reserve a (free) ticket or buy one online. This can be done via the individual program pages on this website. Below we explain how you can do that and you can read more about ticket prices and the rules for workshops.

How to reserve your ticket when you want to attend a program on campus

  • 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
  • You receive immediate confirmation via e-mail
  • 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.
  • We count on your presence! In case you are unable to attend, then please let us know via studium.generale@tue.nl.  We can then make someone else happy with the freed up spot.

Sometimes a program is also streamed live. If this is the case, you will find the hyperlink to the live stream on the relevant program page. You do not need to reserve a ticket to watch the live stream.

Ticket prices
Most Studium Generale programs are free for everybody. For some of the programs students and/or non-students do pay an admission price.
For students: free admission or reduced admission prices only apply on presentation of a valid ticket and your student card at the entrance.

Right of withdrawal: no refunds and no exchanging tickets
If you buy a paid ticket from us for a program (e.g. movie) it is not possible to get a refund or exchange the ticket for another day or another program. We do not make any exceptions to this. Perhaps someone else can take over your ticket if you cannot attend. Read more about the right of withdrawal here.
