Student life

When you begin your studies at the school, you will be given a key so you can come and go as you please 24 hours a day.

As a student, you will have a work table and free internet access at your disposal. As a point of departure, day-to-day studies take place in the school’s drawing offices and are supplemented with introductions, lectures, project presentations, and critique.

You will find literature of relevance to your projects in the school Library, where you can also keep up-to-date with the latest books and periodicals in the fields of architecture, town planning, and design. And you can build models of your projects at the Fabrication labs.

The canteen is a popular gathering place when you need a break from your studies – for a cup of coffee, something to eat or simply a relaxed chat with your fellow students. The week ends with the Friday Bar, which is arranged by students themselves – who also regularly arrange bigger parties with DJs and live bands.

The students at the school are very active and facilitate a lot of student-driven activities and student societies at the school.

Being the city in Denmark with the highest concentration of students, Aarhus is a very attractive student city. The many educational institutions, which are located around the city centre, contribute to a young and vibrant atmosphere.

Our school is one important reason why Aarhus today has a reputation as a city where international architecture and design flourish. The many internationally recognised firms of architects and designers in the city have their origins in the school.

Living in Aarhus

Finding a place to live is an important part of starting a new life as a student, but with a 12,000 increase in the student population each year, accommodation in Aarhus is in great demand.

However, Aarhus Municipality offers a housing guarantee scheme, which guarantees accommodation to all new students who begin their studies in the fall semester.
