About the dorm

Dyrlægevej kollegiet is a very modern dorm located on the KU Science Campus in Frederiksberg, making it one of our most sought-after accommodation options. The dorm’s location means that KU’s Frederiksberg campus is literally around the corner and the Copenhagen Business School is in easy walking distance, so the time from your bed to your lecture/workplace is kept to an efficient minimum. The Frederiksberg area is one of Copenhagen’s most popular neighbourhoods due to its central location and great variety of parks, cafés, culture, and shops, and so Dyrlægevej is hard to beat on location. As all rooms are studio flats, it is the ideal dorm for independent students who like some privacy but still wish to socialize with friends and neighbours, which you can do in the common kitchens and terraces on each floor—and, not to forget, the large roof terrace. The common kitchens on each floor also demand participation in a common weekly cleaning session, which is a great way to get to know your neighbours.

About the area

The dorm is located in Frederiksberg, one of the most desirable and central neighbourhoods in Copenhagen, filled with shops, cafés, pubs, and parks—even Copenhagen’s zoo. The large park Frederiksberg Have and the Copenhagen city lakes are nearby. Access to the city centre is quick and easy, with many public transport options very close by. For nightlife, nearby Nørrebro, with all its live restaurants and music bars, can be reached on easily on foot.

Things to do

In Frederiksberg, shops, cafés, and pubs are abundant and there are several libraries, music venues and museums. The large park Frederiksberg Have extending into Søndermarken Park is close, as are the city lakes, making it easy for runners and walkers to stretch their legs. Frederiksberg Have also contains Copenhagen’s zoo and often the elephants can even be seen from the regular park.

For nightlife, the nearby Nørrebro area can be reached easily on foot. It is perhaps the most popular quarter for going out in Copenhagen, as there are lots of places to eat, drink, dance and experience live music. But there is also much to see, for example the famous graveyard Assistenskirkegården, where celebrities and musicians are traditionally buried and the locals go for walks. Or the Red Square (Røde Plads), a hub for multicultural encounters and political rallies, where also many sports and music events take place. 

Important info

Obligations

Please note: We never provide bedlinen, duvets, or pillows. Please bring or buy what you require. We also do not provide kitchen items (e.g. pots, pans, plates, etc.), however you will often find that previous tenants have left kitchen items for you to use.
