Family dorm with a green and social profile.
The dorm is mainly for families, single parents or couples who are planning to have children. All adults must be students (at least 23 hours/week and eligible for SU) with at least 2 years remaining study when they move in.
The dorm has a daycare for the smallest children (0-3 years) on the 11th floor and a kindergarden/pre-school (3-6 years) on the ground floor. Residents apply for the daycare and the kindergarden through the Copenhagen Municipality. The parents can use the studyroom while the children are in daycare. Parents and children in the dorm can meet in the common room in the afternoon. In here you will also find "Solbaren" and it's possible to have film showings.
The green focus is based on a number of different things such as:
The laundry uses recycled water; Cleaning is mainly organic and fair trade; It is possible to recycle used clothing, furniture etc.
The location of the dorm is green as well, situated between Valbyparken, Vestre Kirkegård, Carls Have and Søndermarken. Add to this the playgrounds in the municipal park on the southern side of the dorm.
Social activities are a big part of the culture in this dorm. There are parties (Halloween, summer etc.) all arranged with the children in mind, monthly arrangements like "clothes trading day" and common breakfast.
The residents house - one of two common facilities - is used for e.g. rythmic classes and indoor rollerskating. And - when the weather is right - there are places for grilling or having a campfire.
The 2-room apartments - 140 in total (~63 m2) all have their own kitchen, bath and balconies to the North and to the South. In addition to this there are several common areas, parking areas for bicycles and prams both indoor and outdoor, fitness room in the basement and a small elevator by each staircase.
