Ghent University will be celebrating its 200th anniversary on Sunday, 8 October 2017, together with everyone who wants to be there. Everybody will become Ghent University during a free, vibrant city festival bursting with experiences and discoveries for young and old.

The day starts with a live broadcast by Radio 1 from the Boekentoren and the launch of the book Uit de ivoren toren. 200 jaar Universiteit Gent (both in Dutch). In the afternoon, a Ghent University axis will be drawn through the city, between Het Pand and the Botanical Gardens. You will be treated to an exciting mix as you follow the path: kids’ workshops, interactive demonstrations, experiments, science demonstrations, short readings, tours, a book market, and much more. Naturally, you can also visit parts of Ghent University heritage: the Aula, the Blandijn, the Emile Braunschool, the Volkssterrenwacht, etc.
