We focus on the students
In all aspects – academic, environmental and personal – the staff at Campus Kolding takes the students’ needs into consideration.
There is, however, always room for improvement, and we are always interested in your opinion. In the spring of 2011, the Executive Board of the University of Southern Denmark thus launched a project called “De studerende i centrum” (Focus on the students) with five working groups to focus on ensuring and improving an inspirational learning environment in a motivating study environment with first class service, as perceived by the students. For example, one of the working groups focuses on improving the physical, social and virtual study environment.
Below you will find information on our current measures to ensure that we are always focusing on the students. Please let us know, if you have any ideas for further improvements.

The university building
In the summer of 2014, campus Kolding moved into a brand new low-energy triangular building, centrally located in Kolding, with easy access from the motorway and the train/bus stations. The new building is close to Kolding Stream and the main entrance will be facing a central square between the building, the stream and the street called Buen. The surrounding green areas create an inviting social environment and the inside of the building ensures an inspirational and motivating study and learning environment. Read more about the new campus Kolding here. The new building has many great student facilities, like the cafeteria, the library, the student book store etc. You can read more about the facilities in campus guide Kolding.
