DTU Risø Campus

Located on the peninsula Risø in Roskilde Fjord 7 km north of the historic town of Roskilde and 40 km west of Copenhagen.

The buildings on Risø Campus are located in groups on a stunningly beautiful 262 hectare site.

Main architects were Preben Hansen and Paul Nieport who designed the one-story standard buildings. 

An avenue of poplars line DTU Risø Campus’ ‘main street’ which runs from the entrance close to the highway to the head of the peninsula. The avenue was laid out in 1957 by the Danish landscape architects C.Th. Sørensen—the most celebrated landscape architect of his time.
