As a volunteer at Studenterhus Aarhus, you’ll get social and professional skills you won’t get anywhere else. We are the only place in Aarhus where everything is under one roof. Our task is to build bridges between people, between student life, culture life, and business life. We are a student house, a community, a cultural center, a networking hub, a non-profit organisation, a concert hall, a bar, a social space, a café, a meeting place for students and businesses, a running club, and much much more. Volunteer with us, and make Aarhus the best student city in the world.
Do you have a cultural entrepreneur hidden away inside? Do you want experience with project management, planning, and execution? Or maybe be the sound engineer at our concerts? Then the culture group is something for you!
In the Culture Group, you can do:
Events: If you have an idea for an event then you’re free to propose it
Booking: The Culture Group books a lot of concerts, and we would like your help!
Execution: Do you want close contact with guests, volunteers and artists? When we execute events, we have some long and fun days. Your job is to get our venues ready, and welcome our guests with a smile on your face.
Booking and events:
The Student House is made up of three elements – education, culture, and business. The Culture Group provides content for the cultural element; concerts, lectures, exhibitions, stand-up, secondhand bazars, and much more – both serious stuff and stuff that’s just for fun. We average about 2-4 cultural events every week, half of which are concerts, and the Culture Group has it’s hand in all of them, either as project managers and planners, or with execution of external events.
As a member of the Culture Group you can create any cultural event you can think of – almost. The Student House’s Producer & Program Responsible will help you create, plan, and execute your ideas, as well as put together a budget for your event. Do you want to create a street art festival, a cheese rolling competition or a lecture on biodiversity? Then the Culture Group is the right place for you.
Execution of events is also a big part of the life in the Culture Group. This is where you’ll get to be on the floor, and conduct your own and the Student House’s events. The Culture Group will welcome the artists, lecturers, and performers, move the tables and chairs, get the room ready, and make sure the coffee is brewing and dinner will arrive on time. The members of the Culture Group are the face of the Student House when it comes to artists, partners, management, and customers – and you’ll meet the customers in the door, when ticket sale is on.
You’ll will also have the possibility to work on sound- and light engineering on our small stage in the café. You will be responsible for all the tech, but you won’t be alone – you’ll have our professional sound engineer with you for as long as you need to, and there will always be other volunteers ready to help.
We expect that you:
– Participate in our meetings
– Are available for volunteering for at least one year
– Can do two shifts a month during the two semesters
– Are willing to be the project manager on at least one project per semester
– Value relationships and community, both in the Culture Group, and in the Student House

Our International Group constitutes ESN Aarhus, and it is our mission to make Aarhus the best city to be an international student. The International Group, better known as I-Group, is for anyone who wants a vast international and Danish network and for anyone who wants to make great events and projects for international students.
I-Group does activities for international students on exchange or full degree. We plan and execute introductions for new students in August and January, and create events throughout the semesters for both Danish and International students. We make everything from the famous I-Nights every Tuesday to cultural events, lectures, trips, dinners, language cafés, and career events. At our events international students get to know the rest of Denmark and the Danes.
As part of I-Group, you’re responsible for the planning and execution of our activities. We expect you to take at least two shifts each month, and be the main project manager on at least one project. You’ll become part of a diverse and social team, and collaborate with people from all over the world.

If you like meeting people, experiencing bar or café life from the other side of the counter, and being part of a fun organisation, keep on reading!
Our bar group is our biggest volunteer team. As a volunteer bartender at the Student House, you get the chance to be a part of loads of events (concerts, parties, talks, poetry slams…) all while getting to know students from all over the world.
What does being a volunteer bartender mean, you ask? It means 3-4 shifts a month, either in our Study Café or at events in the Student House. Shifts can be during the day or during the evening/night. We like to make sure we can keep our guests hydrated past 11pm, so if you have 8am classes every day, bartending might not be for you!
Experience is not required! We’ll teach you everything you need to know. The most important thing we expect from you is energy and enthusiasm for being part of a fun organisation.
What do you get out of this? Meeting people (both Danish and international), discovering a different side of life in Aarhus, and being part of a non-profit organisation that supports student life. Plus, you get a great group of co-workers and new friends.
The group consists of volunteer bartenders supported by a group leader who is there to help and guide you as you start your volunteering experience.
If this sounds like something for you, send an email to email@example.com and our bar manager or group leader will get in touch! Remember to include your contact information when you write us.
