Tietgenkollegiet is an attractive residence hall in Copenhagen on Amager, which is close to the city center and CBS. It is primarily for Danish students; however, 10% of the rooms have been reserved for international students. The core value at Tietgenkollegiet is the active participation of all residents in the community in the shared kitchen and at the residence as such. Tietgenkollegiet offers an unique opportunity to get to know Danish students as well as other international students through the daily interaction with your fellow residents.

Residence Handbook


Type of accomodation
The residence has 6 floors with a total of 360 rooms. CBS has access to 18 single rooms for exchange students.

"Tietgenkollegiet is by far the most endearing and modern setting for any prospective exchange student. The facilities are amazing: computer labs, study rooms, restaurant quality kitchens and a residence bar recently fitted with a 300,000 kroner sound system, just to mention some. The rooms are very spacious (even the small ones), which come with heated bathroom tiles, lots of light and gorgeous views. The atmosphere is great, especially during the weekend when there is always an event or a dorm party. It is a little further out of the CBS area, but this is totally compensated for by the fact that you are literally two metro stops from all the Copenhagen nightlife.
Aside from this, Tietgen is perhaps the most visually alluring of all the residences offered by CBS, receiving awards for innovative design. You are guaranteed to make fast friends and have a great Copenhagen experience. It comes highly recommended by an exchange student who lived in both private residence in 1st semester as well as Tietgen in 2nd semester."
