The official religion of Denmark, as stated in the Danish Constitution, is Evangelical Lutheran. Approximately 85% of the Danish population is Evangelical Lutheran, 3% are Roman Catholic, and approximately 5% of the population is Muslim.

If you are interested in practicing your faith while in Denmark, you are welcome to stop by the Student Hub at the start of the semester to discover how to involve yourself.

Bias Education and Information

Although we hope that you have not experienced a bias-related incident or discrimination, we do know that bias situations can occur within our community and in Copenhagen.

DIS takes bias incidents and discrimination very seriously, so we developed a tool for you to inform us about bias-related incidents involving you or another DIS student, whether at DIS or in the public.

Should you encounter situations where you feel discriminated against, e.g. by the police, at a nightlife venue, or elsewhere, find information about how to inform DIS here:
