About the dorm

Kagså is the right dorm for students who like peaceful surroundings but a social environment and want to keep the budget low. Tenants live in private ensuite rooms, but share kitchens and social rooms with other students, making for a nice student atmosphere. At the same time, the dorm is situated in the suburban town of Herlev, c. 10 kilometers from the center of Copenhagen, and so is located in a peaceful green environment. Herlev Hospital is only a short walk away, making the dorm ideal for medical students and interns.

Due to its suburban location, residents do need to rely on busses or a trusty bicycle to get into central Copenhagen—but the low rent more than makes up for this, since Kagså is perhaps the most affordable dorm that we offer. And affordable doesn’t mean ‘cheap’ either, since the dorm still has plenty to offer, including a café, conference/party room, study room, gym and a bicycle workshop.

About the area

Herlev is a quiet suburb north of Copenhagen with its own town centre and shops, etc. Excellent cycle paths make the 40-minute cycle into central Copenhagen a breeze and the 5C bus takes you directly to Tivoli, the central station, and even all the way out to the airport.

Things to do

The dorm itself offers a nice social scene, with frequent parties. Herlev is a small town, but features plenty of entertainment, including two cinemas (with another one in nearby Lyngby), as well as an ice skating rink and the Gammelgård culture and arts center. There is also plenty of nature in easy travelling distance, such as Kælkebakken hill, the Killegård Nature Centre, and the Utterslev Mose lake area.
