Student Life

Campus life

Roskilde is one of the oldest cities in Denmark.

More than 1000 years ago the Vikings established a trading post that developed into a major town. In the medieval period, Roskilde was one of the most important cities of northern Europe, the seat of the Danish crown and an episcopal residence.

Nykøbing Falster is the largest city on the islands of Lolland and Falster, and is often called "Nykøbing F." to distinguish it from at least two other cities in Denmark with the name of Nykøbing.

Næstved is one of the oldest towns of the country and was once one of the largest Danish towns in the Middle Ages. Today the city of Næstved has approximately 42,000 inhabitants making it one of the larger Danish provincial towns.
