Tietgen Kollegiet

Repairs will take place from spring 2024 - You might be relocated

Unfortunately, extensive damage has occurred to the water pipes at the dorm.  Necessary repairs will take place from Spring 2024 and onwards.

These repairs will require relocation of students to other parts of the dorm. This means that there is a risk of being relocated to another room for an expected period of up to six weeks.

During the relocation period it cannot be guaranteed that the room size will be similar to the one you have reserved.  We regret however that it will not be possible to compensate you for this.
