South Campus, Københavns Universitet

I feel so lucky to be able to work at such a beautiful modern campus. My office is in the city centre, rather than Amager which is where the south campus of my university is located, but I like to roam around the different campuses because each one has their charm.

I’ve visited a great many universities throughout my studies and working life, and can honestly say have never walked around a modern campus that I genuinely find aesthetically pleasing to look at – until I came to Copenhagen that is! Usually it’s the older buildings that I enjoy being at, whereas new campus developments in cities always seemed to me like glassy, gargantuan structures that don’t quite fit with the rest of the architecture.

But as I’ve mentioned plenty of times before on this blog, modern architecture is really something special in Copenhagen – it’s something you can seek out as something to admire around the city. The South Campus of the University of Copenhagen is no exception, and it is probably one of my favourite places to go work – it’s fun to walk around, it’s clean, it’s elegant, and a stone’s throw from Islands Brygge, one of the city’s most beautiful Harbourside walking areas.

The little bike caves built-in (I call them “bicycle hobbit holes”) are the showstoppers for this pedestrianised campus, though the circular student accommodation building design comes a close second – have a look below and let me know what you think! 🙂

  1. It is exactly how you say it. It is a wonderful campus. The photos show this. It is extremely modern and cozy. No wonder you feel comfortable working there. Good for you.
