About the apartment

A/B Alleen is a shared student apartment on the top floor of a regular residential building in suburban Copenhagen. There a three private rooms and one room for two roommates to share in a flat for five students, with bathroom and kitchen being shared among all flatmates. This makes A/B Alleen a great option for social people, who wish to live closely with a small group of other international students, but are mature enough to share chores and household responsibilities. As the flat is in a regular residential building, tenants are expected to be considerate of their neighbours in the other flats and keep noise levels down. Situated close to the beach and to the airport, this accommodation option makes it a great base for those who enjoy travelling and the outdoors.

About the area

A/B Alleen is found on the large island of Amager, which hosts a good chunk of Copenhagen city as well as large green spaces. The apartment is situated in the suburb Kastrup and is within walking distance to Copenhagen Airport. Within only a few minutes cycling or walking, you get to Copenhagen’s lovely beach at Amager Strandpark, which is a great place for walking, running, swimming or just relaxing. University of Copenhagen campuses can be reached easily by public transport or bike: There is a metro station on the same street and bike paths into town are excellent, though the suburban location means one needs a trusty bicycle to cycle the 30 mins into town.

Things to do

Kastrup is a little outside the city, but a 20-minute metro ride will get you into central Copenhagen. However, there is also plenty to do in the neighbourhood: As the apartment is very close to the sea, the public (and free) bathing areas on the beach can be reached in just a few minutes cycle or walk, offering white sand and picturesque views to Sweden. If you prefer pounding pavement to treading water, the beach paths offer plenty of space for a long run. Just around the corner you’ll find the fantastic aquarium ‘The Blue Planet’, featuring sharks, otters, and lots of other sea creatures. And Kastrup’s town centre features several restaurants and shops, and the culture house and cinema are in easy cycling distance.  If you’re in the mood for a daytrip, the woodlands and picturesque fishing villages of rural Amager are worth a longer cycling trip.

Important info

Obligations

This residence is not a student dorm but a shared residential flat. Therefore tenants are expected to be considerate towards their neighbours and flatmates to a higher degree than in a regular dormitory. For example, tenants are expected to make an effort to get along with other students, participate in cleaning chores, solve disputes, be considerate when playing music or having guests over, etc. Since the rest of the building is a regular residential building, you also have to be considerate of neighbours who have to get up to work, tend to a family, etc. All tenants have a common responsibility for cleaning their own room and common area.
