Copenhagen is relatively small (1.2 mill) and compact compared to other capitals, so it is easy to quickly know your way around. The University of Copenhagen has four campus areas in Copenhagen. The University premises range from historic buildings in the medieval city centre to modern buildings being constructed today to develop the campus areas and accommodate state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities.
