The word Campus is Latin and means open field and the typology is primarily known from the British and American educational environments. As an identity The Campus holds the undisputed quality, of a well-balanced relationship between natural landscape and buildings. In Ejby Campus it is in the open green space that synergy and activities occurs and where people and companies can meet.
