Campus Næstved


ZEALAND Campus Næstved is located in the southern part of the island of Zealand, approximately 1 hour by train from down-town Copenhagen.

The campus facilities
Zealand in Næstved is a modern building located by the vibrant life at the docks, which corresponds with the Zealand way of thought, and makes it a part of the developing business life in the city.

The campus facilities offer different student labs, which the students can use for their academic work and own personal projects. At Campus Næstved you can find the Student Hub, which is an information and counselling service for students, run by current students from Zealand.

We encourage students to spend their personal study time at the Student Hub, where there are good opportunities for relevant feedback from other students and for help from the teaching staff.

Næstved is the fourth largest town in Zealand. It is located only 45 minutes by train from Copenhagen, and its roots run as far back as 400-500 BC.
