Hempel Kollegiet, DTU

The new Hempel Kollegiet, DTU will provide accommodation for 200 international students at Lyngby Campus. The facility will be sited in the green, wooded area on the corner of Anker Engelunds Vej and Lundtoftevej.

The new residential units in Hempel Kollegiet, DTU will make it considerably easier for the many international students to find accommodation while studying at DTU. At the same time, the residence hall will bring more life to Lyngby Campus and support the vision of a living campus busting with life 24/7.


The new residential facility will be organized in three clusters, with each cluster comprising two buildings with 12 and 13 units on two or three floors. To promote a sense of community among the students, each floor has a communal kitchen and study lounge.

The buildings will have a simple U shape, and enclose an inner courtyard which will serve as a social meeting place. By having the woods as close to the buildings as possible, it creates student residences which boast a strong relationship between the internal and external environments.

Construction work on Hempel Kollegiet, DTU will commence in spring 2016, and the buildings will be ready for occupation in connection with the start of the new academic year in autumn 2017.
