About the dorm
Watch a student video about Tåsingegade. (Video produced by Olivia Parkinson)
Tåsingegade kollegiet is an affordable dormitory for students only and is located in the popular neighbourhood of Østerbro. Østerbro is a central residential area of Copenhagen and features many shops, cafés and parks, and transport options to all KU campuses are excellent. Since all residents at Tåsingegade live in private studios, this dorm is best suited to those who enjoy having their own space—or, given the many shared rooms available, also for those who want to reduce the rent by living closely with a roommate. While facilities at Tåsingegade are older, this is reflected in the low rent, making it one of our most affordable accommodation options. As a result, the dorm is very popular with students on a budget who still want to live in a central location.
Please note: As Tåsingegade Kollegiet is an older building, we are making continuous improvements to it. Therefore various kinds of construction work are being carried out and shorter breaks in utilities (electricity, water, etc.) can occur during specific repairs.
About the area
Tåsingegade kollegiet is situated in the central neighborhood of Østerbro, one of the most popular residential areas of Copenhagen, offering a great variety of cafés, shops, gyms, etc. Tåsingegade is close to Østerbrogade, one of the city’s main streets, which features excellent shopping and opportunities as well as the Park cinema. The large park Fælledparken is just around the corner from the dorm. Transport options are excellent, and access to the inner city is quick and easy. The vibrant nightlife scene of Nørrebro is only a short cycle away.
Things to do
The large park Fælledparken is just minutes away, making it easy to go for long and short walks and runs—or just for sitting in the sun with friends. The beach at Svanemøllestranden is also easily accessible on bike or even on foot, making a quick swim very easy. The busy street of Østerbrogade is around the corner, and features many restaurants, cafés, shops, and even The Park cinema. A few minutes’ cycle or bus (or even walking) gets you into Nørrebro, the city’s most popular area for restaurants, bars, and live music. But there is also much to see there, 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.
You are responsible for maintaining and cleaning your flat—and if you are sharing with a roommate, you are both jointly responsible. You are also responsible for cleaning and maintaining the common area.
