Goals of a Residential Community
Build a community with other DIS students and challenge yourself to engage locally, as you will have to be proactive to meet locals and get a feel for their culture.
Residential Communities can be structured differently, housing a varying number of students. The Communities are co-ed residences.
Residential Community Highlights
- Exploring cultural differences among fellow DIS students
- Have the opportunity to learn important life skills, such as cooking and navigating a city
- Building a community together and going the extra mile to get out of your comfort zone and engage with the local community
This housing option is right for you if, you are willing to:
- Be social, self-reliant, and want to contribute to a healthy living community
- Commute from home to DIS using public transportation available in Stockholm or Copenhagen – you can use this time to do homework, take a nap, or just listen to your favorite tunes and enjoy the view
- Share a room or have your own room. The room sizes vary and most often two students share, but up to four people may share a room. Single rooms are available but are limited
- Share a kitchen and bathroom
- Do your own grocery shopping
- Share cleaning responsibilities for your own room, and common areas on your floor such as the kitchen, bathroom, and living room
- Live in the city or metropolitan area
