About the dorm

Det Ny Emdrupborg Kollegium is a great option for students looking to socialise, since all bedrooms are shared by two roommates of the same gender, making it easy to find friends and study buddies—with the inbuilt bonus that rent is comparatively easy on the budget. The small kitchenette in each room lets you prepare basic food in privacy, but every floor also features larger shared kitchen where you can hang out prepare bigger meals with friends. The common party and fitness rooms make it easy to stay happy and healthy, and the laundry room means you don’t need to leave the house and find a laundromat (an otherwise common occurrence in Copenhagen).

About the area

Det Ny Emdrupborg Kollegium is located a bit further out of central Copenhagen in the northwest of the city, but that is not a bad thing: Several lakes and green spaces are nearby, making it easy to go for a quick run or stroll during a study break, and swimmers and sun worshippers can reach Svanemøllen beach in about 15 minutes by bike. In the evenings a short cycle gets you to Nørrebro, a trendy area popular for going out, due to its many bars and lively music scene.

Things to do

The local lakes and beach make it fun and easy to stretch your legs and get out for some exercise or hanging with friends. For some nightlife, the close 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. 

Important info

Furniture and inventory

All the rooms are furnished but you need to bring your own bedding, towels, cutlery and cooking utensils. Please bring or buy what you require. However you might 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 included in your rent:

Electricity, heating, water, Laundry, and internet


You will be able to connect a router via the wall socket. You will have to buy your own router and find an internet provider. 


Laundry facilities are available in the building and you pay for it as a utility. A laundry chip is available in your room and ready for you to use.
