Aarhus BSS is expected to move its activities at Fuglesangs All to the new University City in the summer of 2025. This will gather all of the school’s activities in Aarhus across Nørrebrogade.
On 12 April 2021, a winner was announced among the turnkey contractors who have submitted a proposal to construct the facilities in the new University City. The winner was A. Enggaard A/S, AART Architects, LYTT Landscape and NIRAS, who submitted a proposal for Aarhus BSS’ new facilities together.
The assessment committee consisted of three representatives from Aarhus University and from FEAS as well as two professional assessors. All proposals were based on the overall principles for Campus 2.0, including the principles of securing physical proximity between researchers and students and opening the school and AU up to the outside world. Other guiding principles were to ensure a good academic environment, to support the teaching formats of the future and to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration.
Following the agreement with a turnkey contractor, the work related to developing the future campus can begin. Throughout the process and towards the move, relevant forums and the departments will be kept informed. In addition, information about the process will be communicated through this Campus 2.0 website.
The first step will be an information meeting 31 August 2021 open to all students and staff at the school. Here, the school will outline the current status of the project and inform about the next phase, including the planned involvement process
