Aarhus University has got a little new … mobile information centre

On 23 November 2016, Aarhus University’s little new mobile information centre will roll out of the drive for a tour of the university and the city. The aim of the tour is to collect input from the university’s many different users on how to develop the university campus in connection with the takeover of the AUH hospital buildings at Nørrebrogade.

“We want to gather as many views and ideas as possible on how we can develop tomorrow’s campus. We have therefore designed and built a little mobile information centre as a way of communicating with our users in a slightly different way. The information centre will enable us to meet and talk to users about the development of our campus exactly where they are,” says Brian Bech Nielsen, rector of Aarhus University, adding:

“I hope that the information centre will attract people with lots of interesting ideas and encourage them to take a look inside and give us their suggestions for how an attractive future-proof Campus 2.0 might look.”  

From 23 November and for the next month, the information centre will tour the university and the city of Aarhus to collect input from the university’s many internal and external stakeholders.

Come to the naming party

A naming party for the new mobile information centre will be held in front of Stakladen on 23 November at 12:00. The university will be serving cake and hot mulled wine. Everyone is welcome.

Aarhus University is taking over the AUH hospital buildings on the Nørrebrogade site in 2019. The intention is to develop a brand new campus with student life and activities around the clock. A campus which, together with the existing campus, will provide a framework for an attractive research and study environment designed for the future.
