The campus of UCPH is located in Copenhagen. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. Foreigners who come to UCPH through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
