You may not be a student, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the campus atmosphere.
There is a lot of exciting new architecture at Islands Brygge, and one of my favourite buildings is Copenhagen’s new Faculty of Humanities. To be precise it is a series of buildings separated by canals and then in turn connected by bridges over the canals.
Except for the summer holiday, when the campus is almost completely dead, this is a buzzing area. It’s also a public area, so you are welcome to hang out and pretend to be student without actually having to attend a lecture. Not unless you want to, of course.
I love the big sand-coloured minimalist buildings and the water flowing between them; together it provides a delicious sense of spaciousness.
If you get hungry or thirsty during your visit, head for the university café, “Café Mødestedet“, for a sandwich, coffee or beer and hang out with the teachers and students.
And while you are here, you absolutely have to drop by Tietgenkollegiet; the most beautiful student residence in all of Copenhagen. Just remember that the college is not part of the public area.
