Well hello there, college-bound Lovelies! As you start packing up your belongings for the next chapter, you’re probably filling up with anticipation about your first home away from home and the freedom that comes with it. Hopefully, your new residence is far from the prison-like dormitory I lived in for two glorious years. And how cool would it be if you landed in a dorm such as the Tietgen Student Hall, located in Denmark? Take a look inside of this dorm and its endless features!
The Tietgen Student Hall is located in Ørestad, a developing area within Copenhagen, Denmark. The building houses exchange students attending the University of Copenhagen and was completed in 2006 by Danish architects Lundgaard and Tranberg. Standing at seven stories high and containing 360 rooms, the design has won many awards for its unique shape and size that focus on a communal concept.
Along with the students’ rooms, the building also houses a cafe, auditorium, study and computer rooms, bicycle parking, music rooms and a massive courtyard smack dab in the middle. The building encourages community among the students and it will no doubt resemble a busy zoo once the school year starts back up.
What are some of your favorite college dorm stories? Are you headed to college this Fall to make some?
