Study Environment

The study environment is the environment and the social networks that students are a part of when they are on or outside campus.

Inviting physical surroundings and a rich association life, just to mention two important things, make a positive mark on the study environment.

On these pages, you can find information about the study environment at Nat and Tech.

In the menu, you will find local information about locations and the study environment at your department. Note, that most local information is in Danish.

Student associations
