Facilities on campus

DTU Lyngby Campus has several student canteens, a library, a bookstore, and unique student facilities such as DTU Skylab. As a student you also have access to DTU Inside and CampusNet, which will be an indispensable part of your studies.

DTU Library

DTU Library is at once a traditional library, a digital library and Denmark's technical and scientific information centre.

Here you will find a wide range of aids for your study time. You can search for scientific articles, online e-books or a book from our large collection, which you can borrow at home or use in the library. In addition, the library also offers group rooms, quiet workstations, printers, scanners, copiers and binding facilities.

You can get professional help from a librarian weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Outside of normal opening hours, access to the library is available with a student card.


We have multiple canteens at Lyngby Campus, where you can purchase a variety food and beverages. 

Should you wish to order catering for a meeting or event at DTU, you can ask your DTU contact person for a link to DTU’s online catering platform. Additionally, your contact person can provide you with contact details for the canteens, in case of any questions or specific requests. 

If you are working or studying at DTU, please visit DTU Inside for more information about meeting and event catering, the various food and beverage outlets, and their respective opening hours.

DTU Skylab

With a ‘floating’ meeting room, workshops, and state-of-the-art IT facilities, DTU has transformed a former research building on Lyngby Campus into a key facility for start-up businesses and innovative entrepreneurs.

Learn more about this unique facility.


DTU has a wealth of various research facilities ranging from ultra-modern laboratoriums to massive full-scale test facilities. Other facilities include test centres for wind turbines, ocean going vessels, and anechoic chambers.

DTU favours the hands-on principle. Students are not expected to just watch, they are allowed hands-on access to all facilities.


Located in building 307, Nanoteket is a student facility where advanced equipment is made available to DTU students and high school students.

Cash point machine
