Student Life

Campus life

The students and academic staff at the DPU enjoy spending time and embarking on activities together both during the courses and in their free time. They often like to refer to each other as the “DPU family”.

The enrolment ceremonies take place in the collegiate church at the Benedictine Abbey of Göttweig with a blessing by Abbot Columban or Father Patrick who is in charge of the pastoral care for the students. The ceremony is accompanied by the DPU choir, which is made up of students and staff, and often invited to perform at the abbeys and churches of the region.

The students of the Danube Private University (DPU) distinguish themselves not only through their strong commitment to their dental medicine studies, but also through great success in their sporting endeavours. Whether football, tennis, golf, horse riding, fencing, flag football, endurance sports or hunting, the students are active together and often participate in training organized by the DPU, allowing them to enjoy their leisure time.
