About the area
Engvej Studios is found on the large island of Amager, which hosts a good chunk of Copenhagen city as well as large green spaces. Engvej is located right between the lively Amagerbrogade and Amager beach, which means you are only a short walk away from the vibrant city-life and the calm beach-side.
The city section of Amager is popular with young professionals and families. It is considered ‘up-and-coming’, with many cafes and small shops on the local shopping street Amagerbrogade and the small streets alongside it – making your daily grocery shopping convenient.
A large shopping centre with all manner of stores is only a short bike ride away, and Copenhagen’s city centre is less than 30. min away by bike. As is KU’s South Campus, the Christianshaven and the diverse Christiania neighborhoods. However, with the beach within walking distance you might want to stay close to home.
Things to do
Engvej studios offers numerous activities, with the beach and vibrant Amagerbrogade on each side. If you want to explore the beach, kayak rentals are easily available and the sea bath lovingly named “the snail” should not be missed. If you prefer dry land, Kastrup Fort and the national aquarium ‘The Blue Planet’ are must sees. And the beautiful nature of Amager Fælled is just a short cycle away or a few stops with the metro.
With KU’s Søndre Campus only a short cycle away, and Engvej being a large student dorm, student life is never far away. If you prefer to get out into town, the exclusive Christianshavn neighbourhood, with its trendy cafes and boats, and the bohemian ‘Freetown of Christiania is easily reached by bike or the accessible metro running all night. Immediately next to Søndre Campus you’ll find Danish Radio’s modern concert hall featuring both pop and classical music. A little further out on Amager you can find the newly built multi-use “Royal Arena” that has already hosted some of the biggest artists in the world.
You are required to participate in whatever common cleaning and maintenance tasks organized by the dorm.
