The University City

Facts and background

In January 2016, Forskningsfondens Ejendomsselskab A/S (FEAS) purchased the hospital buildings on Nørrebrogade and leased them to AU. The preparations for AU’s move to the buildings will begin in 2019. The expansion is part of a vision for developing and strengthening the campus in Aarhus as an attractive and future-oriented research and study environment.

FEAS is a subsidiary of the Aarhus University Research Foundation (AUFF), which has supported the university’s gradual development of its campus in Aarhus since the company’s establishment in 1987. With FEAS’s purchase of these buildings, Aarhus University has been given the opportunity to create a new and more modern campus which, combined with the existing campus, can take the overall area to new heights. An important step on the way is the development of a district plan.

In addition to the university purposes, the ambition is to create a campus that integrates urban life, shops, businesses, housing and institutions and establishes links with the surrounding neighborhoods, Katrinebjerg and Trøjborg as well as downtown Aarhus and Aarhus Docklands.A future-proof, city-integrated campus with student life and round-the-clock activities.
