Deciding whether Bispebjerg Kollegiet is right for you
Bispebjerg Kollegiet is reserved for students.
Bispebjerg Kollegiet is a good option for the independent student who wants to have much privacy while still being in close proximity to other students. This housing option requires more of the students in terms of getting into contact with other students.
