The overall vision for AU’s campus in Aarhus is to develop and strengthen it by consolidating it around the University Park, the University City and Katrinebjerg. Meanwhile, the framework for AU activities outside of Aarhus will continue to be developed, particularly in Foulum, Herning and Emdrup.
The physical development of AU’s campus will ensure that the university can continue to provide an appealing work and study environment that attracts talented and committed students and staff.
Aarhus University’s campus shall:
Campus is a term for something both wonderfully precise and charmingly opaque.
Perhaps a campus can best be described as a special sense of cohesion that can be easily delimited on a map and which can also be broken into more than 50,000 individual parts, one for each student, researcher and employee at AU. Campus is a place to meet up, yes. But a campus is first and foremost a curious and ever-changing cultural environment where people study, carry out research, work and live. We are currently in the midst of significant physical changes at the university. But from a historical perspective, these changes are a natural extension of everything that the university has pursued for more than 100 years: Constant and concerted progress towards the next relevant version of campus.
