During the week the Student House puts on a range of activities such as debates, quiz-night, gay-day, live music and an International Café (see below). Furthermore, the house is home to a number of activity groups with interests such as poetry reading, music, environmental issues, photography and dancing. As a student enrolled in the University of Copenhagen, you are automatically a member of the Student House, allowing you among other things to join the activity groups and obtain various discounts on drinks, photocopies, etc.
Every Wednesday night during the semester is International Café night in the Student House (Studenterhuset). 300-400 Danish and international students meet to have a drink and debate and joke in numerous languages. The atmosphere is friendly and open which has made the International Café an important meeting place for all international students.
