Introduction week

Buildings and premises

It is essential that the students responsible for organising introduction week know the rules for borrowing premises at the Faculty of Arts. The aim of this site is to give you an idea of what is expected when you borrow the faculty’s premises in connection with introduction week.

Booking rooms

During introduction week, the coordinators can use all the faculty’s classrooms, study environments, cafeterias and other communal areas. The coordinators draw up a plan of which rooms they will need in introduction week, based on what was needed last year. This plan is sent to the students who are organising the event, and to Arts Building Services. 

Loan agreements (Nobel Park, Kasernen and Emdrup)

The students organising events in the Nobel Park, Kasernen and Emdrup must fill in a loan agreement. This agreement must be signed by an introduction week coordinator and the buildings inspector. The agreement is like a driving licence, and must be presented when necessary during the event/party concerned. 

You will find this agreement here

Checklist

This link contains a checklist which the students organising the event in question must use when cleaning and tidying up the premises afterwards. The list is designed to help by explaining how clean and tidy these premises are expected to be. All the premises that have been borrowed will be checked by a member of staff from Arts Building Services. Students who are organising events in the same premises several days in a row must meet Arts Building Services for a joint inspection of the premises.

More information about checking premises will be available at the information meeting.
