The students’ house for activities, parties and ideas
Studenterhuset is placed in central Copenhagen – right next to Rundetårn. We are the place where students meet across the many subjects and faculties at the University of Copenhagen.
The house is run by students, alongside a small group of paid staff; together we create an amazing atmosphere, debates, concerts, events and all kinds of activities. If you want to participate in one of the activities, or have a good idea for a new one, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
For the students by the students
Cheap coffee and great atmosphere
As a student at UCPH you’re automatically a member of Studenterhuset, and get extra discounts on beverages, snacks and entry fees to the house. If you’re studying at another institution of higher learning, you can sign up as a member and get the same benefits as the UCPH students.
At Studenterhuset the social environment is crucial; from we open the doors in the morning until we close at night there are plenty of opportunities to meet up in study groups, hang out with friends and join the activities you want to. We have a bunch of regular activities every week, and our calendar is filled with concerts and events. So stop by.
We also do activities outside Købmagergade. We organize events and parties around the city, have a volunteer run bike repair shop at Frederiksberg and organize the University of Copenhagen’s annual Spring Festival.
An international student city
There are a lot of international students in Copenhagen, and in Studenterhuset we make sure, that almost all of our activities are accessible to them as well.
The largest part of our activities and events are in English, and we offer mentor activites and other events, that give the international students a great intro to and understanding of Copenhagen as a student city. So expect us to speak English, when you sign up as a volunteer.
For the students by the students – via volunteering
We are typically 200 volunteers from around 40 nationalities at Studenterhuset. Moreover we’re a small secretariat, who handles the economy, supplies and practical issues, supports the various activities etc. There is always a paid staff member present in the house, to make sure that all volunteers and guests are well, and to make sure we adher to the rules about out alcohol licence, noise levels etc.
Studenterhuset is an independent organisation (forening) affiliated with the University of Copenhagen. A volunteer board consisting of students directs the house. It is our task to develop and organize activities for the students by the students. We do that for instance by Studenterhusets Problemknusere (Studenterhuset’s troubleshooters), a sort of volunteer academy that creates educational courses about how to start up great volunteer projects at the university. We also have an annual idea-day, where the entire house meet up and develop ideas for new activities for and by students.
