City Campus

Studying at City Campus means being downtown Copenhagen. Everything the city has to offer is right outside the door. Nevertheless, it is easy to escape city noise in order to study or relax in one of the many beautiful, surrounding parks.The campus area accommodates the Faculty of Social Sciences and a part of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

Centre for Health and Society (shown in the film) is located between the city lakes and the transport hub Nørreport. This is a place brimming with history as the buildings are the former district general hospital with high ceilings and a stylish architectural look. Teaching facilities are modern, and in 2013, the University opened a new building with three auditoriums.
