About the apartments

The Sigynsgade / Vermundsgade shared apartments are located in an apartment complex in a residential area situated between the Nørrebro and Østerbro areas. As these apartments are shared between two or three flatmates, they offer a convenient option for those who wish to keep rent low by sharing an apartment and yet want to live in a central location. As a result they are a great option for social people, who wish to live closely with other international students or researchers. Naturally, this living arrangement also requires tenants mature enough to share chores and household responsibilities. 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. The charming Scandinavian design with wooden floors and minimalist furniture makes these apartments quite cozy.

About the area

The flats are 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.

Things to do

The apartments are 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. 

For all manner of practical advice, please see the Residence Handbook.

Important info

Obligations

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. For example, tenants are expected to make an effort to get along with flatmates, participate in cleaning chores, solve disputes, be considerate when playing music or having guests over, etc. Since the rest of the building is a regular residential building, you also have to be considerate of neighbours who have to get up to work, tend to a family, etc.

Furniture and inventory

Please find an inventory list for rooms in Sigynsgade/Vermundsgade here.

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.
