Use our venue

Our house with its rough and urban look works as an ideal venue for events, conferences, seminars, classes, meetups, happy hours and workshops – let your imagination run riot.

Hosting an event in The Kitchen

We consider our house a melting pot for all innovative minds – both from within and outside Aarhus University – and are happy to lend out our facilities for events.
