Student Life

Student life at the IT University of Copenhagen is a mix of hanging out with friends and fellow students at the university premises as well as enjoying everything the city of Copenhagen has to offer.

The study environment at the IT University focuses on both academic and social aspects. When you enroll at the IT University, you will be welcomed by a team of student counsellors that inform you about your programme. Here you will get to know your fellow students in a pleasant manner and perhaps form the first reading group.
All students in the building have access to a kitchenette, where you can cook a meal or just make yourself and your friends a cup of coffee. You can spend a well-earned break from your studies playing table tennis and foosball, work out in our fitness room or enjoy a drink and a discussion in our cosy student café, Analog, or the student bar, Scrollbar.

As the IT University is a small university, and all courses are taught in the same building, you will automatically meet your teachers and fellow students after class, and you'll meet entrepreneurs from the industry on the 5th floor.


All of the education programmes at ITU are approved by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education in Denmark.

As a tool of quality assurance, the programmes are continuously accredited and re-accredited by the Accreditation Institution in Denmark. This is based on the ESG (European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance) in the European higher education area. The process focuses on i.a. the academic content and the prospect of employment within a relevant field once graduated.
