The World’s Coolest University Dorm
Located on Orestad, a newer district in Copenhagen, Denmark, lies the award-winning Tietgen Student Hall (Tietgenkollegiet), a large circular residence with a massive interior courtyard.
The building was completed in 2006 and was designed by Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter. The seven storey structure contains 360 rooms, comprising a total area of 26,800 square meters (288,000 sq. ft).
The building’s circular form – a symbol of equality and the communal – is contrasted by projecting volumes expressing the individual residences. Below you will find information about the building and its unique features, along with a complete gallery of both the interior and exterior and of course the incredible communal courtyard.
