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.
