Welcome to the website of Tilburg University Cantus! The TUC is an event that is visited every year by approximately 2800 students of Tilburg University and universities of applied sciences who have actively contributed to society in Tilburg to earn their place at the cantus. The possible contributions for this year can be found on our activities (‘activiteiten’) page, where they are presented in Dutch as well as in English. At the TUC we will celebrate all social contributions and commitments and together we will commence the new academic year! Roll up your sleeves and see you at the 16th edition of the TUC!

Step 1: You want to attend the Tilburg University Cantus

The Tilburg University Cantus is a celebration full of singing, toasting and tradition. Upon arrival, you take a seat at a cantus table, holding a beer in your hand while enjoying live music. Alongside 2800 other students, we kick off the academic year with the cantus. The event starts with the singing of the national anthem, the Wilhelmus.


Step 2: To obtain a tickets for the TUC, you contribute to society in Tilburg

For every cantus table at the cantus, 6 people must have contributed to society in Tilburg to earn the table (which seats 10 people). How to contribute? Students can do activities that contribute to society in Tilburg throughout the entire year, but TUC organizes the so-called TUC for Tilburg to motivate many students to do an activity that day!
