Kalundborg is located on the coast of Zealand 100 km west of Copenhagen - by the sea and some of the most characteristic landscapes in Denmark.
It is a city of contrasts, where the beautiful “High City” that hasn’t changed since the Middle Ages, meets the future in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
With its old history, Kalundborg is very interesting. The inner city can be divided into 7 areas with qualities of its own, but a weak connection between them. There are plans for connecting the areas and in collaboration with real estate investors and the industry there are plans for housing, parks and cultural activities.
Outside the city is the campus area, where the University College Absalon (professional bachelor degrees), The Process School, Helix Lab (MSc students) and Biotech City are located. The area is under development and the schools need more teaching space.
Much effort is put into creating a good environment for the students and Kalundborg holds a unique environment where the students engage in an organized community in close contact with fellow students, teachers, and representatives from the industry.
