Fuglesangs Allé

New study spaces are coming...

...but in the meantime, you will have to cope with a bit of a mess and some dust. Here you can find a list of currently available study spaces at Fuglesangs Allé. 

It is a bit messy and dusty at Fuglesangs Allé at the moment, and perhaps it is difficult to find an available or quiet study space. However, Aarhus BSS Building Services are doing everything they can to keep the inconvenience to a minimum. Fortunately, you can look forward to a number of newly refurbished study and thesis spaces as well as group rooms once the relocation process is completed. 

“We’re doing everything we can to prevent the relocation process from impacting the number of study spaces - both by continuing to look for more available space, but also by being creative with the existing study spaces to increase the number of chairs and make the spaces more attractive.  And we think it’ll work out well!” promises Eigil Jensen, head of Aarhus BSS Building Services.

He urges the students to bear with the commotion a little while longer until things return to normal during the summer. In the meantime, as of Monday 1 May, students can find 66 new study spaces in Plugdown, where the old furniture is soon being replaced.

Core business departments to be gathered at Fuglesangs Allé

To further strengthen the collaboration between the two core business departments, the departments’ degree programmes, their researchers and lecturers will be gathered at Fuglesangs Allé. This entails a major relocation process at Aarhus BSS.

In December, a major relocation process will commence at Aarhus BSS, which will go on throughout the spring and summer of 2017. Both Fuglesangs Allé and the Northeast Corner will be affected.

Why are we relocating?
To further strengthen the collaboration between the two core business departments (the Department of Management and the Department of Economics and Business Economics), the departments’ degree programmes, their researchers and lecturers will be gathered at Fuglesangs Allé. This will form the foundation for a stronger study environment, as all the business students and their associations will now be placed under one roof. To provide space for colleagues and students from the Department of Business Communication (BAMCC, MACC and MA in Corporate Communication) and the Department of Management, some rooms will have to be reshuffled.

These are the most important changes affecting the students at Fuglesangs Allé:

  • The student associations will move from 2627-H and be gathered in 2640-R. (See 360 degree photo)
  • BSS Books will move to new premises at Fuglesangs Allé. The new premises will also include a study environment.
  • The desk at AU Library Fuglesangs Allé will move from 2623-D to 2624-E. (See 360 degree photo)
  • The study area and thesis study spaces at AU Library Fuglesangs Allé will move from 2623-D to 2627-H.
  • The study area at 2620-A will move to 2625-F.
  • The teaching area in 2628-M 3rd floor (with 200-numbers) will move to 2623-D and 2627-H.
  • The study areas in 2628-M (the Glass Hall) will move to 2640-R.

Foundation for a stronger study environment
Dean Thomas Pallesen will be in dialogue with the student associations, who have already toured the new premises in 2640-R with the department’s management team and representatives from Aarhus BSS Estates Facilities. The student associations can spot good opportunities in the attractive new premises they will be taking over. 

“In the beginning, we were very concerned about the distance to the R-building, but having seen the potential, especially in the cafeteria area, we don’t expect we’ll have problems drawing people to the Friday bar. We’re confident that the students will really appreciate the possibility of exiting directly from the bar. The premises are very nice and have great potential with regard to our Friday bar. We believe that student activities will benefit a lot from the new, attractive premises for the student associations,” says Bjarne Vestergaard Nielsen, chair of the Economic Association.

Before the premises are ready to welcome their new occupants, they must be refurbished accordingly. Here the students will also play a part, as they will be involved in the refurbishment.  Since major renovations are necessary in some locations, you may experience some noise nuisance (see time schedule).

The desk at AU Library Fuglesangs Allé will move from 2623-D to 2624-E.
The study areas in 2628-M (the Glass Hall) will move to 2640-R. The Friday bar will be in the cafeteria area.
Store sal and Lille sal are situated in building 2640-R. They will continue to be used for teaching.
