Housing services

When you begin your studies at RUC, you belong to a house together with about 120 students; this is where you attend classes and it is the workplace for your study secretary and four to six teachers.

Each house has group study rooms, computers, copying facilities and a kitchen. It is your house, which you have your own key to, and the house structure means that you have a close contact to your fellow students, teachers and the secretary of the house. You will therefore quickly establish a social network and a place where you feel at home.

Student Life

Campus life

RUC is a meeting place where you become part of a strong community. It is a campus where ideas and free thinking are brought into play in the dialogue between people with different perspectives and nationalities. An interdisciplinary approach and project work immerses the students in social and professional contexts that form lasting ties.

The culture at RUC is therefore characterised by a high degree of openness and room for many different positions. The core of RUC's culture is freedom of thought, democracy and tolerance.
