About the University

The University of Southern Denmark welcomed the first students onto the campus in Odense in September 1966, and things have been developing by leaps and bounds ever since. We now have five faculties with more than  32,000 students, almost 20% of whom are from abroad, and more than 4,000 employees. At Campus Odense 800 researchers and nearly 22 600 students every day work on discovering new knowledge, realisation, and education. Campus Odense is also home to The University Library of Southern Denmark which supports research and education through books and access to databases. A web of cycle lanes connects Campus Odense with the inner city. A city filled with leisure offers for both students, researchers, and teachers.


Odense, Denmark

Odense is one of Denmark's oldest cities and everywhere you can feel the touch of history. In the city centre you can visit the historic quarter, which is also where you will find the Hans Christian Andersen House and the Hans Christian Andersen Museum. The historic quarter sports colourful row houses, cobble stone streets and many fine examples of half-timbered houses. We also recommend that you visit our city museum Møntergården and our open air museums The Funen Village and Odin's Odense.
