Arrival Day and Workshop (Summer)

Information for Admitted and Arriving Summer Students: Arrival Day and Workshop

On the official start date of your program, DIS staff greet you at Copenhagen airport, where you are then transported to your Kollegium or Residential Community.

You must arrive in Copenhagen between 7:00 and 15:00 if you wish to be greeted by DIS staff and transported from the aiport to your housing. If your flight arrives before 7:00, we recommend you wait at the airport until DIS staff are there to greet you in the arrival hall outside of baggage claim.

You will spend your first day in Copenhagen in your new home, where you will get settled, become oriented in your surroundings, familiarize yourself with the itinerary for your first week, and conclude the day with a welcome dinner led by your Social Residential Advisor.

Arrival Workshop

Following your initial arrival day, DIS will hold an Opening Ceremony, where you will meet your fellow classmates and hear from keynote DIS staff and speakers. Following the ceremony, you will participate in DIScover Copenhagen, an activity for you to get to know Copenhagen’s most impressive historical sites. Together with a group, you will navigate the city for the very first time!
