The University of Southern Denmark in Kolding is characterised by close co-operation across the academic settings, by innovative initiatives within design oriented research and education and by strong collaboration with the local business community and public institutions.

Focus areas:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Design
  • Relationship management
  • Communication

As of 1st of September 2014, campus Kolding, centrally located, close to the city centre, the train station and the harbour, will provide the setting for well over 2,000 university students and employees, which will make the University of Southern Denmark extremely visible in the city scene.

The new campus is drawn by Henning Larsen Architects and the architects attached great importance to openness in the six storeys building.
Inside, the social basis is a six storeys atrium. Like the building, the atrium is triangular, but the shape shifts a little from storey to storey. This makes the building adventurous and you will never stop seeing new things while you are moving about in the building.


The skylight disperses the daylight

The University of Southern Denmark, campus Kolding, is the first university building in Denmark that meets the strict Danish legal requirements for low energy consumption for 2015.
The architectural design was an important part of the sustainable strategy. Among other things, the atrium skylight ensures an even dispersion of daylight to the entire building, and the geometry ensures that all square metres are utilised to perfection.
