About the dorm

Rebæk Søpark Kollegiet is a good choice for students who like peaceful surroundings, a social environment, and a low budget. Built in 1977, Rebæk is a traditional older dorm located in the suburban area of Hvidovre. The building itself is in a green park with a small lake, only a few minutes’ walk from a forest. Tenants live in private ensuite rooms, but share kitchens and social rooms with other students, making for a nice student atmosphere.

Due to its suburban location, residents do need to travel into central Copenhagen—either by train from the station right next door or on a trusty bicycle. However, the low rent more than makes up for this, since Rebæk is one of our most affordable dorms. Facilities, while older, offer plenty of opportunities for socializing, with common areas including a billiard table, table tennis, exercise equipment, and even a sauna.

About the area

Hvidovre is a quiet suburb west of Copenhagen, meaning that you are never far away from green spaces. Good cycle paths make the 40-minute cycle into central Copenhagen easy, and trains to the city leave regularly from the station next door. Hvidovre hospital is close, making this dorm especially attractive for medical students and interns working there.

Things to do

The dormitory hosts many Danish students and so is a good place to get to know the Danes and their style of living. The nearby forest makes it fun and easy to go for a long walk or run, and Copenhagen is never too far away for an excursion into town. Brøndby beach is only 30 mins by bike away, offering miles of white sands and lovely views—and while you’re there, you can visit the wonderful modern art Museum Arken for some cutting-edge culture.
