The General Mathematics Colloquium meets on Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 pm in room 174 of the Mathematical Institute Building. The lectures are meant for a general mathematical audience (both faculty and Ph-D. students, applied and pure mathematics). Before each lecture, from 3:45-4:00 there is coffee and tea on the corridor near to room 174. Traditionally, after each lecture we organize a dinner with the speaker.
Lecture room 174 is on the second floor (=1e verdieping). After entering the building, take the elevator on the left, get off at the second floor and take the corridor with windows on the right. Room 174 is opposite to the windows.

The general colloquium will resume in September.
In addition to the General Mathematics Colloquium, there is a regular Seminarium Recreatieve Wiskunde (Dutch seminar on recreational mathematics), which is aiming at anybody interested in the recreational aspects of mathematics. The lectures of this seminar do not require a mathematical background.
The Instituut Lorentz (for theoretical physics) organizes the famous Colloquium Ehrenfestii, which is a natural sciences seminar meant for a general audience.
Other general mathematics colloquia are organized in
