We offer a unique place to live for university women. This beautiful house in the heart of
Malmö is a home where study, friendship, and personal development are nurtured.

LIVING AT ALTONA

Altona offers housing for university women between the ages of 19 and 25. The location is ideal for a student – it’s just a 15 minute walk from Malmö University and a 10 minute walk from the central station so it’s easy to commute to Lund and Copenhagen. The students at Altona get much more than just a room. They have access to shared spaces such as a nice living room, dining room, study room, kitchenette, and even a chapel.

OUR VISION

Altona’s mission is to gather students together who want to take their studies seriously and at the same time develop as people in the company and friendship of others. With this goal in mind, we offer a stimulating study atmosphere and different types of cultural, spiritual, and volunteer activities. All of the formation that is offered at Altona is founded on a Christian understanding of the human person, and the spiritual formation is entrusted to Opus Dei, a catholic pastoral institution. Altona is open to all people, regardless of their cultural background or beliefs. What we practice and ask of all residents is a deep respect for others’ freedom, an open attitude towards others and their opinions so that, through dialogue, we can all be enriched by each others’ ideas. At Altona, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to:

Study atmosphere

● Get a lot out of and contribute to a stimulating environment
●The Altona staff take care of some household tasks so that you have more time to dedicate to your studies

Friendship

● You’ll have the opportunity to get to know girls from all over the world
● You can be enriched by building relationships with the other Altona residents through shared meals, outings and excursions, movie and game nights, etc.

Cultural activities

The cultural activities we have vary depending on the people who live here. Some examples of what we have organized in the past are:
● International dinners
● Weekly cultural presentations
● Book clubs

Volunteer activities

● At Altona, we’ve experienced how important and rewarding it is to engage in volunteer work. Altona residents are therefore expected to dedicate 2 hours of their time per month to some volunteer work.
● We facilitate contact with volunteer organizations and projects

Spiritual activities

● We offer opportunities to get to know the Christian faith
● Retreats, classes, and meditations (time of reflective prayer led by a Catholic priest) are offered for those who are interested
