New HEALTH – a building for research and teaching
The New HEALTH building is SDU’s part of the New OUH/SDU project. Set to house the activities of the Faculty of Health Sciences, the building will connect New OUH with SDU’s existing buildings. The large building complex is unique as it physically connects an entire university and a university hospital. Such integrations are only seen in a few places around the world. It will provide exceptional conditions for research, education and innovation, especially in the field of health.
University and hospital under one roof
Via New HEALTH, SDU and New OUH are being connected at Campus Odense, providing a breeding ground for strengthened cooperation between the two organisations. Read more about common goals for SDU and New OUH here.
Unique settings for research
When the construction is completed, the close geography between SDU and New OUH will generate increased collaboration on research and education. Read more about research and education at New HEALTH here.

In November 2019, the first sod for New HEALTH was turned. Since then, construction has been in full swing south of SDU on Campus Odense. Construction of the building is expected to last until the end of 2022. In February 2023, the building can be commissioned and the moving in will commence. Here you can view images from the construction site and follow the development of the construction work.
