About the dorm
Kulbane kollegiet is a comfortable dormitory in the Valby area. Recently renovated, the dorm offers a number of studio apartments as well as a shared kitchen, making it ideal for students who wish to have their own space but still want to mingle with friends and neighbours. Access to the city centre is convenient by bike, bus or train, offering easy commutes to university. Thanks to its suburban location, green spaces are close by: A series of interconnected parks lead to the sea to the south and the small lake Damhussøen to the north, making it easy to go for runs and walks. As a result, Kulbane kollegiet is a good accommodation option for independent-minded students who want to enjoy city life, but value their private space.
About the area
The dormitory is located in a pleasant suburban area between Valby, Hvidovre, and Sydhavnen. This means that Copenhagen’s city centre can be reached by bike, bus and train – making it easy to commute to university and find your way home after a night out. It also has options for regional transport nearby, should you wish to explore other parts of Zealand or Denmark.
The local area has many green spaces, making it convenient for runs and walks. A series of interconnected parks leads to the sea to the south and the small lake Damhussøen to the north. Among the closest ones is Valby park, a large green space that is used for festivals and events in the summer and offers views of the sea. Nearby Valby town center features many shops, cafés, and a cinema, while the Sydhavnen area offers outdoor swimming facilities (please see more below).
Things to do
Kulbane kollegiets location puts it between several interesting areas. Valby town center features a mall called Spinderiet, boasting many shopping possibilities, a fitness studio and cultural facilities, including a cinema. Valby Hallen, the local sports arena, offers regular concerts and sporting events. In Valby you will also find a variety of restaurants and cafes. Another nearby town center, Sydhavnen, offers outdoor swimming facilities in the harbour sea bath, ideal for a quick dip with friends.
A short ride on a bike or bus will get you to Frederiksberg, one of the most desirable and central neighbourhoods in Copenhagen, filled with shops, cafés, pubs, and parks. There are several libraries, music venues and museums and the large park, Frederiksberg Have, also contains Copenhagen Zoo. Often the elephants can even be seen from the public section of the park.
