Life on Campus

Right from study start, we make sure you quickly make new friends from Denmark and around the world.

Each year, we welcome around 3,000 new students; Some 400 of those are international, so you will not be starting the journey on your own. UCN rolls out the red carpet for our new students with a great start-of-term programme for our Danish and international students. It is hosted by a large team of student ambassadors and student tutors from the various academic programmes who know and understand what it is like to be a freshman.

They will make sure that you are thoroughly introduced to campus facilities and of course to the city life. They will also provide practical information about living, studying and working in Denmark.

Throughout the academic year, the ambassadors also arrange a lot of exciting events and parties. The list of activities is ever-expanding, but to name a few, you will be offered various teambuilding and sports activities, picnics, movie nights, excursions around the city, and theme-based parties around Valentine’s and Halloween.

Right from the start, the ambassadors will arrange a series of activities to make sure that you will get to know your fellow students and quickly make new friends from both Denmark and around the world.

UCN has campuses in three cities: Aalborg, Hjørring and  Thisted. However, all of UCN's English-taught programmes are located at campuses in Aalborg.

A cosy study environment

UCN is a modern academic space for teaching. The facilities surrounding the classrooms are inspiring and lively with cosy corners where you can sit for a cup of coffee or do group work. Danish design dominates the buildings, the interior and furniture, making the environment very study-friendly. You will also find that the campus library is placed in quiet surroundings and stocks relevant literature and subscribes to a number of academic and business-oriented databases.

A thriving social life

Social life on all campuses is thriving, and there is plenty of opportunity to take a break from academic studies and attend one of the many social events, 'Friday bars' or student parties. It is very common for Danes to get together around a shared interest, sport or hobby, or to do volunteer work in the local community. It is a great way to build your network, to do something nice for others and maybe even pick up a few new skills.

UCN offers many opportunities for you to get involved in life on campus. For example, you may sit on in the UCN student council, join the volunteers running the student bar, or become an active member of one of the student sports clubs.
