Mariendalsvej – University of Copenhagen

Hall of Residence: Mariendalsvej

The hall of residence Mariendalsvej is brand new and was only completed in 2019. Therefore facilities are completely modern. The dormitory is located in Frederiksberg, one of the most popular residential areas in Copenhagen due to its great variety of parks, cafés and shops. It is also located very close to Nørrebro, a trendy area popular for going out, due to its many bars and lively music scene.

Note: Please be aware of the fact that there is still construction work going on outside the Mariendalsvej building. Frederiksberg Kommune is making improvements to the street in 2019. This does not affect the entrance or the standard inside the house.

Deciding whether Mariendalsvej is right for you
Mariendalsvej is a good option for tenants who have a strong sense of community, and wish to enjoy modern facilities as well as the bustle of some of central Copenhagen's most popular areas. Since all flats (except those for families) are shared, this dorm is a good choice for those who wish to mingle with their flatmates. This also means sharing -- and jointly cleaning -- bathrooms and kitchen. The two rooftop terraces are an attractive bonus (but please note: No smoking and no barbecues). Transport options are very good for both exploring the city and getting to most of KU's locations, including Søndre Campus.

Type of Accommodation 
The building consists of several floors, with each floor featuring several shared apartments, where each tenants has their own room. 
Tenants share a kitchen and one or two bathrooms with their flatmates. The top (sixth) floor is reserved for staff only, so that staff and students live on separate floors. The ground floor will soon feature a commercial gym and a commercial café. Several rooms have balconies, and as a special highlight, there are two roof terraces for all residents to enjoy. (Please note: Smoking and having barbecues is strictly forbidden throughout the entire building, including on the roof terraces.)

For students, there are a large number of single rooms and several rooms suitable for couples or for sharing with a roommate. For staff, there is a smaller number of single rooms and one which can be shared by a couple or two roommates. On most floors, there is also one room which comes with a separate private office beside it.

There are also three entire apartments for families (one of these very large) with their own kitchen and bathroom. Two of these apartments are on the ground floor and one is on the 4th floor:
57B, 0.-6 (Netto m2: 2 rooms at 11m2 and 11m2 and 1 living room 45m2)
57B, 4.-2 (Netto m2: 2 rooms at 10m2 and 17m2 and 1 living room 51m2)
57D, 0.-2 (Netto m2: 2 rooms at 11m2 and 12m2 and 1 living room 38m2)
These apartments are furnished for two people. You can add more furniture. At the end of your contract you must remove the furniture you added. That way you leave the apartment as you received it. Two people per small room may live in the apartment, so four people in total per apartment.

Internet & TV
Although there are no facilities for traditional TV reception, internet access is provided. 

The UCPH Housing Foundation does not provide you with a TV. By Danish law, everyone who has an internet connection must pay media license to the Danish public broadcaster DR. This expense from DR is not included in your rent, so it is your responsibility to ensure that you pay this media license fee.  

Transportation
Mariendalsvej is located within walking or cycling distance from several KU locations in the area, as well as CBS. There are also a variety of buses and train stations close by, including Nørrebro and Fuglebakken stations for trains and Fasanvej station for the metro. 
The metro station Fasanvej is located c. 3 minutes away by foot, and the metro M2 takes you directly from there to Islands Brygge station, where Søndre Campus is located (total journey time c. 25 mins). You can also take the no. 12 bus, which gets you to Søndre Campus in c. 30 mins. The dorm's location makes it excellent for cycling through town, and bike parking spaces are available at the dorm.
