I stayed in a student dorm whilst on exchange. This is organised through CBS and they have a big list of dorms that you can choose from. My advice is to do your research on each dorm as you have to put an order of 1-7 on accommodation and it is very competitive so ensure that you are confident in your top 3 choices. I stayed in Svenevej, which I absolutely loved, but there are a few things to be aware of. The Svanevej photos shown on CBS are NOT what the rooms actually looked like. The photos that are used are from the permanent residents that live in the accommodation and the student rooms are a lot more basic and not furnished in this way so do not make your decision based on this. I paid extra for a bigger dorm room and I HIGHLY recommend doing this. In the scheme of things you do not pay that much extra and it is so nice having the extra space.
My dorm room was so much bigger then the smaller ones and I absolutely loved it. It was like having a small studio apartment with my own little kitchen and bathroom. There are only 2 big rooms in Svanevej so be quick with requesting them. My room was 113 and was in the corner of the dorm so I had no noise from the street or the staircase.
Svanevej is in the Norrebro neighbourhood, which is an up and coming neighbourhood of Copenhagen. My favourite area of norrebro is just 5-10mins walking distance from Svanevej. Be aware that this is a very multicultural neighbourhood. I always felt 100% safe day and night, but a lot of people in Copenhagen say it is very “dodgy.” I was very nervous about this initially but I loved the area. So many young people live around Norrebro and Jaegesborgade is an amazing street that is right nearby. There are supermarkets right next to the dorm as well as a bus and train line within a 5 minute walk. I absolutely loved the dorm, we had our own common room and shared kitchen although everyone had their own kitchenettes anyway. This is a much smaller dorm than the others listed so it is not much of a “party” dorm, which I preferred. We also had a huge rooftop terrace which was great for BBQs and drinks.
