Everyone Ghent University! takes place on Sunday 8 October at different locations in Ghent city. Most activities are scheduled between 1 and 5pm. The day ends with a big birthday event until about 7 pm, and a foundation ball that starts at 10 pm. The program on the website is still growing.

The full festival is free for young and old, with the exception of the Out of the Box interventions in the Museum Dr. Guislain and the Design Museum.
