Important info:

Students cannot make a shortening offer for this residence. The rental period is always two full semesters (except for ITU students). Student tenants are bound by the contractually agreed rental dates and cannot exit the rental contract early. This is because the dorm wishes to host long-term tenants only. 

This dorm is considered a form of social housing, so according to Danish law you must sign a formal contract with the dorm as well as a service contract with us. However, only your contract with us regulates rent, keys, access, etc.

Tietgenkollegiet is highly sought after and there are very few rooms available to the Housing Foundation. Therefore, very few students will be able to reserve a room here.

If you move to Signalhuset, Tietgen, Øresunds, Rebæk Søpark or Kagså, you do not pay a moving fee, but instead need to pay the Administration and Handling fee. Each time you move to these specific residences, another Administration and Handling fee will be applied. If you move within the same dormitory, you do not need to pay an extra Administration and Handling fee. 

About the apartments

The Rævegade apartments are situated very centrally, located in the charming and historic neighbourhood of Nyboder, a row house district that used to be part of a historic Naval base. Though small in size, the apartments are cozy and kept in a Scandinavian design. They are an ideal option for individuals who wish to have some private space in an extremely central location. They are also suitable for couples, who don’t mind living together on limited space.

About the area

The location is one of the best in Copenhagen – central yet very quiet and calm. Copenhagen’s inner city is just around the corner, with all major tourist sights and shopping areas located within walking distance. The apartments are also close to Østerbro, a residential area, which offers a great variety of parks, cafés and shops.

Things to do

Many of the city’s major museum’s are in easy walking or cycling distance, including the national art gallery Statens Museum for Kunst, the independent art collection at Davids Samling, the Geological Museum, and several more. You are also within walking distance from green areas such as the beautiful historic Naval base Kastellet, the park Kongens Have (The King’s Garden), as well as tourist attractions such as Amalienborg (the Queen’s residence), the historic harbor of Nyhavn, the elegant Magasin department store, and Copenhagen’s main shopping street Strøget. All major cultural institutions, incl. the Opera and the Royal Theatre and Ballet, are similarly close.

Important info

Obligations

Since the apartments are locate in a regular residential building, you have to be considerate towards neighbours who have to get up to work, tend to a family, etc.

Furniture and inventory

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. Therefore it is often worth moving in first and checking this before buying kitchen items.

Utilities

Many utilities are included in the rent. However, you pay for internet. Please see your rental contract for details.

Internet

An internet connection is available in each apartment and you pay for it as a utility. The network name and password can be found in the entrance hallway. 

Media license

By Danish law, everyone who has an internet connection must pay media license. This expense is not included in your rent. For further information please refer to the website of Danish broadcaster DR.

Laundry

Laundry facilities (but not drying facilities) are available in each apartment. The cost is included in the rent.
