Student Life

In the Department of Computer Science you will be part of an active and international study environment. Our canteen is run by students, you can join our football team which plays against other SCIENCE teams or spend a weekend at our LAN-party, DIKULAN. You can also play board games with fellow students at our DICON days.

If you have a more creative side and enjoy painting or playing music, you can join other SCIENCE students in Cafe KAFKA. The University sports association, USG, offers all students more than 80 different sporting activities. There are plenty of opportunities to meet and socialise with fellow students.

The University of Copenhagen (UCPH) has four campus areas in Copenhagen. The Computer Science programme at Faculty of Science (SCIENCE) is primarily based at the North Campus.

The University’s North Campus, home to scientific, pharmaceutical and health science research and neighbour to the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet), Metropolitan University College and Fælledparken is centrally located. 

Many exciting building activities are going on at the campus areas at the moment, including the construction of a new Natural History Museum and the Niels Bohr Building at North Campus. In general, North Campus, home to scientific, pharmaceutical and health science research and neighbour to the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet), Metropolitan University College and Fælledparken, is being developed into a coherent district, Copenhagen Science City,  based on the concepts of science, health and interdisciplinarity.

International student environment

Roughly 9,500 students, including around 1,200 international students, are engaged in the Faculty's 21 BSc and 33 MSc programmes. An additional 1150 PhD students, many of whom are also from international backgrounds, round out the student population. The study and research environment at SCIENCE is, therefore, very international.
