Student Life and Surroundings

The campus and the city of Odense provide a multicultural atmosphere that is a welcoming environment to exchange students.

Students on exchange will be greeted by a USD representative upon arrival at campus, and will participate in an orientation with other international students.  Student advisors will be made available to exchange students with questions about coursework, exams, or any questions regarding studies. 

Odense is the third largest  city in Denmark with a population around 200,000.  The city has a rich art culture and is home to many museums and galleries.  Along with many great things that Denmark has to offer, its location makes it possible to easily travel the rest  of Europe.
