About the dorm
Bispebjerg Kollegiet is a great option for independent students who wish to live more privately, as each tenant has their own studio flat, but still want to live among other students. The common room and terrace are great places to hang out with friends, but there are also smaller study rooms where you can prepare for exams in peace. Since it is located in northern Copenhagen, it offers easy access to Nørre Campus and all its faculties by bike (10 mins) or public transport (15 mins). The Frederiksberg and City Campuses are also easily accessible in 15 minutes by bike.
About the area
Bispebjerg is located in a more residential area, but amenities like gyms and public transport are close by, and access to the city centre is quick and easy. Since the dormitory is located in northern Copenhagen, it is quite close to Nørrebro, a trendy area popular for going out, due to its many bars and lively music scene. Leafy Frederiksberg, one of the most attractive areas in Copenhagen due to its great variety of parks, cafés and shops, is also readily accessible by bike
Things to do
Nearby Nørrebro area is perhaps the most popular quarter for going out in Copenhagen. There are 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.
