The bookshop is the students’ own and its policy is clear: Students must be able to get all the books on the curriculum list and at reasonable prices.

Apart from necessary books, the bookshop stocks a selection of, for example, computer literature, calculators, accessories and material for handing in assignments. The bookshop is also available to order other books on request.

Your student card gives you a 10% discount on most textbooks.

The bookstore is open Monday to Friday from 8.45 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you do not have time to stop by, you can send an email to skt@sktbooks.dk.

CampusNet is your virtual gate to DTU. When you are accepted by DTU you will first receive an email and then a letter confirming that you are accepted as a student at DTU. With this you will receive a DTU login and password for your personal site on DTU’s intranet “CampusNet”. This provides you with a webmail and access to relevant information from the International Office, the professors, participation lists, info about exams, courses, and much more.

All communication with accepted students take place via CampusNet and therefore it is important that you check your mail and messages regularly.
