The Venue – Reykjavík University

Reykjavik University

Reykjavík University (RU), situated in the heart of Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland, is a dynamic international university with over 3,000 students and almost 500 faculty and staff members. The university focuses on bridging the gaps between business and technology, reasoning and creativity, and the generation of knowledge and its application.

The geographical position of Iceland, located midway between Europe and North America, creates unique crossroads for international co-operation. This enables RU to conduct its teaching, research projects and program developments in close co-operation with outstanding universities on both sides of the Atlantic.

RU offers modern and well-equipped facilities which were built in 2010. The campus area also offers various additional services for students such as a gym, cafés and a good access to outdoor activities.

RU is ideally located at a very short distance from Reykjavík Airport and also from Reykjavík’s city center.
The university is served by bus, which can help you moving within the city.
