The Student Society (Studentersamfundet) in Trondheim is owned and run by its members, who number close to 9000. In 1927, the founders of the Student Society meant for it to be the natural hub for students in Trondheim, and it continues to be. The characteristic red, round house houses concerts, cultural events, numerous bars, a cafe, a pub and a restaurant.
The famed Society Meetings, which usually take place every Saturday, are an arena for political debates and other more or less intellectual endeavours. The Society also contains three of Trondheim's best concert venues. In addition to this, Norways largest cultural festival, UKA, as well as the worlds largest thematic student festival, ISFiT, grow out of the red walls of the Society every second year.
