The neighbourhood

Tietgenkollegiet is located in Ørestad Nord – a vibrant neighbourhood that also houses the University of Copenhagen Amager, IT University of Copenhagen and DR Danish Broadcasting Corporation as well as a number of residential buildings.

“It’s great that it’s so close to the city and I can ride my bike almost everywhere. But it’s also nice to have the metro so close when it’s snowing because then the trip across the bridge Langebro is no picnic. The neighbourhood Islands Brygge blooms in summer full of people and ice stands and it’s great to experience Copenhagen this way.” Stephanie, resident

Living along the channels

In the area around the residence hall you will find the characteristic channels, the banks of which are a natural place to gather for e.g. students from the universities in the area. And when the frost of winter sets in they are perfect for skating or a hockey match.

Close to both city and nature

Tietgenkollegiet is close to the neighbourhood Islands Brygge that, with the harbour bath and many restaurants, is the obvious destination if you want to go out. The nearby metro stations makes it very easy to get to and back from the rest of the city. And if you need a break or a run in the fresh air you have the protected green belt Amager Fælled only a stone’s throw away.

An up and coming neighbourhood

Ørestad Nord is an ever-changing neighbourhood and a lot has happened just in the few years that Tietgenkollegiet has been located there. New buildings are continually added and with them more people and more life. Most recently, the neighbour of the residence hall, Mikado House, has been completed and now houses both a café and the supermarket DøgnNetto.
