Hans Christian Ørsted Institute

The Hans Christian Ørsted Institute at the University of Copenhagen is a building complex that houses the departments of Mathematics and Chemistry, as well as part of Physics. It is named after the physicist Hans Christian Ørsted (1777-1851), who discovered electromagnetism (1820) and was the first to isolate aluminium (1825). By students and staff the institute is commonly called simply "HCØ".

The complex is made up of 5 connected buildings: A, B, C, D and E.

Building A is a long connecting building, it's in ground, 1st floor and basement level and holds the canteen and auditories.

Building B is a 5 floor building, and holds facilities for inorganic (ground, 1st and 2nd level) and organic chemistry (3rd, 4th and 5th level). In the basement of the building is a mass spectrometry apparatus.Building C is a 5 floor building similar to building B and holds the sections for theoretical chemistry and spectroscopy.Building D is a 5 floor building similar to B and C, but this is dedicated to physics and is as such part of the Niels Bohr Institute. It holds the "Ørsted Laboratory".

Building E is another type building, not as large as the other three. It holds the mathematical section.
