The residence at Porcelænshaven is the only residence situated on campus at CBS.

Porcelænshaven 28
2000 Frederiksberg


Type of Accommodation
The residence is five floors with 20 rooms per floor and located in part of the former Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory that was completely renovated for CBS and is now part of the CBS Campus. The residences were finished on 17 August 2006.
Although the residence is composed of individual self-contained one-room apartments, students can be given access to a CBS student common room.

Porcelænshaven is the residence which is nearest all CBS buildings; I even have some courses in the same building in which I am living. It is a really comfortable dorm; we know each other because it is not too big. I have a single room and it is quite nice, I have my own mini-kitchen inside, and I share a bathroom with only one person. I am going to stay in the same room for the next semester as well. I would not change it!! I am very happy here.
