Kollegieboligselskabet was established in 1973 by three dormitories in Odense as a non-profit organization. In 1998, the company was converted into a general housing society.
The fact that Kollegieboligselskabet is a general housing society has a big impact on the way our dormitories are managed. The most noticeable is probably the fact that the rent our tenants pay exclusively consist of the cost for maintenance and administration. Therefore, we do not actually earn any money for managing the dormitories and the result is a lower rent for our tenants.
Kollegieboligselskabet is a modern and active housing society, which builds and manages dormitories and youth housing in one of Denmark’s biggest education cities, Odense. Our accommodations are spread out over all of Odense and they vary in size and price. Therefore, there should be something for everybody.
With focus on a modern and effective management style and resident influence, we wish to create stable settings for our residents, so they can focus on what is important - their education. Therefore, our daily work is very much characterized by service, development and community.
To always be a step ahead of what happens in the general house society market, we have made alliances with many other dormitory administration companies in Odense and in the rest of Denmark. Here, we have an opportunity to share our knowledge and become better at knowing what the students want for accommodation types, accommodation politics and regulation etc.
We are members of Boligselskabernes Landsforening. Kollegieboligselskabet is an administrative company for Foreningen Kollegienet Odense and private dormitory and education accommodations.
As a resident in one of our accommodations, you are a part of a social community and you have plenty of opportunities to create a network with your fellow residents through events at the dormitory.
Through resident democracy, you can get the opportunity to create a good dormitory. By participating in the annual resident meetings and by becoming a board member, you get insight into budgets and the economy of your dormitory. You also get experience in working together and being responsible for your own and common decisions - Experience you can use the rest of your life.
At Kollegieboligselskabet, we do what we can to have resident democracy. There is nothing like experiencing happy and committed residents who take responsibility for their dormitory.
Digital development: Simplicity for our residents
To be more effective and better service our applicants, residents and those who have moved out, we are continuously trying to have focus on the development of digital solutions. Therefore, we also try to avoid paper solutions.
We have made changes so we now have digital signatures, digital inspection reports, digital leases, final settlements and a lot more. Applicants, residents and people who have moved out now do not need to manage paper documents. They have also gotten an easier way to find old documents and correspondences again.
