Facts and figures

Vejle is an ancient town whose origins go far back in the Middle Ages; it is mentioned for the first time in the mid 13th century. Geographically, Vejle is located in the so-called ‘Triangle Area’ of Southeastern Jutland.

With a population of more than 55,000, Vejle is the 9th largest town in Denmark.

Vejle is best known for its natural surroundings with long valleys, steep hills and Vejle Fjord.

Social life

At the many cultural events on offer in the town you can meet other young people who are studying, or just enjoy the activities.

There is a lively music scene in cosy cafes and venues, at the Musikteater, Torvehallerne, or at Jive, the unofficial Danish champion at getting world-famous performers to the town. Musikteater also offers cultural events such as plays, opera and ballet. Museums and art galleries highlight art in the life of the town.

Erasmus Student Network Odense

Although Erasmus Student Network Odense arranges most of its events in Odense, students from Vejle are very welcome. Odense is only a short train journey away.

Where to live?

If you are enrolled at one of our campuses in Vejle or Jelling, the International Office will try to find you a room through private landlords. For example you could be offered a room belonging to a Danish student, who would like to sub rent her own room/accommodation to you during a study abroad period.

Another option is accommodation through Lillebaelt Hospital, who provides accommodation to short term medical staff. If they have rooms available, you will be offered one of their rooms. These rooms are furnished and provided with bed linen, towels, dishtowels etc. There are kitchen utensils in all rooms.

In case the International Office can’t find a room through its network of private landlords, UCL will let you know well before you travel to Denmark.

Getting around

Vejle is centrally located in Southern Denmark, and you are therefore only a short train journey from Odense, Jelling, Kolding or Århus.

Of course you can use buses to get around locally in Vejle, but UCL recommends international students to get hold of a bike and experience Danish biking culture first hand.

It’s fun and keeps you fit – and you quickly get from place to place.
