In 2014, SDU opened a brand-new campus building in Kolding, and it has already become a significant landmark for the city.
It has won several international design awards, including the International Architecture Award 2015, which only goes to the best and most significant new buildings in the world.
SDU’s Kolding campus is located by the harbour together with a number of other educational institutions such as Design School Kolding, creating an opportunity for turning Kolding into a strong centre for design and fashion research in Denmark. But SDU in Kolding has many more educational offerings, such as business administration and IT & communications programmes.
Some 2,600 students and 170 staff study and work in the triangular building, which has great facilities for students, including a canteen, library and bookshop.
In the heart of Kolding and by the river
The new campus is centrally located in Kolding with easy access from the motorway and train/bus station.
The décor of the building results in an inspiring and motivational study and learning environment, and the surrounding green areas create an environment that is perfect for socialising. You can read much more about that in the Kolding campus guide.
Open doors and easy access to help
Researchers’ and university teachers' doors are always open here on campus.
This means that it is easy to get answers to any academic questions that may arise over your course of study, either by dropping by the lecturers’ offices or contacting them by phone or e-mail.
"Where can I get help during my studies" lists which services and offices you can contact for help with a specific issue.
Become part of a community
The Kolding Student Council (Studerendes Råd i Kolding, or SRK) plays an important role in the social life at the Kolding campus, for example through freshman outings and parties.
The council works closely with Café Ubåden, the campus’ local student café. SDU Sport offers students an opportunity to work out at low prices and meet new people while studying at SDU.
If you are a student with a business idea, or if you are working on something you want to create a prototype for, then visit SDU Maker Lab in Pakhuset by the harbour. The Maker Lab can help with the creative aspects of your project and business development.
