Klimahave SDU
The Climate Garden community is for SDU’s students, staff and researchers, and the garden can thus be a gathering point for people from across studies and education programmes to meet and exchange ideas and thoughts about the topics below.
The purpose of the Climate Garden is to provide the framework for a community at SDU in which climate, environment, sustainability and biodiversity are the central focus.
In the Climate Garden community, there will be garden events and workshops with the world goals in focus. For a small fee, members can also rent their own pallet frame in the Climate Garden, which they can use to grow various herbs and vegetables. In addition, there will also be the opportunity to create initiatives such as insect hotels, beehives and permaculture beds. 

MIT Odense - The Association for Medical Innovation and Technology
Target audience: For students at SDU who seek to develop innovative, entrepreneurial, technological and management-oriented skills and engage in interdisciplinary work on solving societal and healthcare issues.
Purpose: The purpose of MIT Odense is to establish a network of students across disciplines who want to cultivate and facilitate a broad interdisciplinary community with a view to solving major issues affecting future society and the healthcare sector.
Vision: Health innovation is complex and requires skills from many disciplines. Our vision is to create a culture that is built on interdisciplinarity and innovation, thereby ensuring a space for people to meet across academic groups and get involved in technological development. In this way, we ensure need-driven innovation in which the need is based on how we can benefit society through development, validation and optimisation of these processes, including infrastructural/political changes that create a better framework for innovation and public-private collaboration. Hopefully, we will help shape the quality of research, increase the entrepreneurial attributes of students and build a bridge between academia and industry.
Activities: We offer lectures, workshops and events in collaboration with academics and industry that touch on innovation and interdisciplinarity. We also facilitate opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and research, including opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate projects.

Nedenunder - Fredagsbaren på Campusvej
At over 800 m2, Nedenunder (which in English means ‘downstairs’) is probably Denmark’s largest Friday bar and is located at Entrance C on Campusvej 55. It is important for SDU that students have the opportunity to get to know each other across faculties, studies and year groups. For this reason, the bar was built in 2012 in a size that could accommodate all faculties on Campusvej. However, Nedenunder quickly became so popular that it was already having capacity problems when the Faculty of Engineering moved to Campusvej. As a result, the venue was greatly extended in 2017, so that there is again room for everyone.

Today, Nedenunder is the social gathering place where every Friday you can meet your fellow students from across the University’s many subject areas and where during the other six days of the week there are often other kinds of student events such as revues, stand-up, concerts, etc.

Find Nedenunder on Facebook or drop in with your fellow students the next time it’s open.

Our ski trips focus on quality and wide-ranging skiing and socialising. Therefore, we choose destinations that cater for every taste. Whether you are completely new to skiing, a true piste racer, a crazy freestyler or pro freerider, you are welcome! Because we travel to different places as SDU, we have a unique opportunity to get to know each other across education programmes. We therefore attach great importance to arranging events during the trips that create social relations between the travellers. This can be anything from guided piste tours and adventure races to pub crawls and club100.

SDU Yogaklub

We want to create a yoga community for students, staff and alumni at SDU.

Yoga is a unique discipline that offers fundamental life values, reflective philosophy and physical practice. We would like to share the knowledge we have acquired through our study of yoga with you. We will give you the opportunity to integrate yoga into your own life, to the extent that you feel makes sense for you and your quality of life. Namaste.
