About the apartment

The apartment is located in an apartment complex in a residential area, situated between the Nørrebro and Østerbro areas. The charming Scandinavian design with wooden floors and minimalist furniture makes it quite cozy. Its location provides excellent transport connections to all KU campuses, with Nørre Campus being in walking distance. The large park Fælledparken is also in walking distance and offers playground areas for children. 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.

About the area

The flat is situated in the eastern part of Copenhagen, on the border of the Nørrebro and Østerbro neighborhoods, meaning that transport connections to all university campuses are good and the nearby major roads offer excellent cycle paths into town. Nørrebro is a trendy area popular for going out, due to its many bars and lively music scene. Østerbro is one of the most attractive residential areas in Copenhagen due to its parks, cafés and shops, and is popular with families with children.

Things to do

The apartment is located in a quiet residential area, but amenities like gyms and public transport are close by, and the large park Fælledparken is within walking or running distance. The nearby Nørrebro area is perhaps the most popular quarter for going out in Copenhagen, and features 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


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. Since the rest of the building is 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.


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