Roskilde University was originally established in order to challenge academic traditions and to experiment with new ways to create and acquire knowledge


Sustainable solutions for the major future challenges can not be solved with one professionalism alone. Therefore, all our educational programs are interdisciplinary , so you are equipped to solve real-life complex problems.


We involve the outside world in our research, in our identification and understanding of the nature of problems and in the dialogue regarding possible solutions for the benefit of both the local community and the rest of the world. We are also constantly engaged in developing new ways to interact with the world around us, in order to ensure that the university's reach extends as far as possible into the outside world and that the world reaches even further into the university. Everyone should be able to draw on the knowledge that we create at Roskilde University, and we should be able to draw on knowledge from everyone.

Student Life

Campus life

  • Life at the university is more than attending classes and conducting research. On campus there are many facillities for sports and social time together, indoors and outdoors.
  • Two multi courts, soccer, disc golf course, nature trails along lakes, streams and fields, a gym, innovation workshops, kitchen gardens, a student house, a canteen, sofa lounges, a cinema, etc. are all places to meet for social moments.
  • There are many clubs that you can choose to engage in, from nature conservation to choir to robot building. And you can create your own club - perhaps an evening of ignite-speak, build-a-city garden or performance poetry. Campus can be what you make of it.

Student clubs

Association Student House RUC is based on a voluntary commitment where the students, together with each other, work to drive a house that gathers and engages all students at Roskilde University. There will be access for all, with benefits for students with valid student ID.

The program is very interesting. However, the lectures are not as good as you would expect. There is not much discussion and the teaching method is a bit boring. It's hard to follow the class. The lectures are based only in the readings. Not much new to what you have already read.
