Hall of Residence: Tåsingegade Kollegiet

The hall of residence Tåsingegade Kollegiet is situated in the eastern part of Copenhagen at Østerbro, one of the popular residential areas in Copenhagen. Østerbro offers a great variety of parks, cafés and shops. Tåsingegade Kollegiet is close to Østerbrogade, a street with excellent shopping opportunities as well as cafés and Park movie theatre and dance club.

Please note: Tåsingegade Kollegiet is an older building where continuous improvements are going on. Therefore various kinds of construction work are being carried out and shorter breaks in utilities  (electricity, water, etc.) can occur. Currently, we are preparing to make improvements and install new card readers in the laundry room; please be aware that this may result in laundry machines being out of order on certain days.

Deciding whether Tåsingegade kollegiet is right for you
Tåsingegade Kollegiet is reserved for students.

Tåsingegade Kollegiet is a good option for the independent student who wants to have much privacy while still being in close proximity to other students, and who wants to live in one of the mundane areas.
The shared rooms are ideal for the student who wants to keep a low budget and who doesnt have a problem living very closely with a roommate.
