Aarhus University's Annual Celebration 2018

Aarhus University was founded on 11 September 1928, and holds a celebration every year to commemorate the event. We invite not only the university staff but also our partners, whose support for Aarhus University is invaluable.

The annual celebration 2018 will take place on 14 September
The celebration, which marks Aarhus University's 90th birthday, starts in the afternoon in the Main Hall on Ndr. Ringgade with speeches, an anniversary lecture, music, the conferral of honorary doctorates, and the presentation of scholarships and awards. The afternoon event will be videotaped.

In the evening the party continues at the Concert Hall Aarhus, with a buffet for our external partners. At 8 pm there is a concert for staff and external partners in the Concert Hall’s Store Sal, led by Peter Vuust and Per Christian Frost. After the concert, snacks and wine will be served for all our guests in the foyer.
