We spoke with the maintenance crew at CBS to get the scoop on what happens when you’ve parked your bike in a “no parking zone”. But before we get into that, we’ll explain why you cannot park your bike in any old place.
When we bike to school, chances are we’re running late or have just gone through the all too common, excruciating experience of having to bike in a headwind for nearly half an hour. In these situations, we’re inclined to find the parking spot closest to the entrance of where we want to be.
But before you decide to do that, just stop to think about the maintenance crew who are going to have to go through the daunting task of moving your bike to a less obstructive spot. According to the maintenance staff at CBS, “At times, the number of bikes parked in the wrong area was so abundant that they actually had to call for a transport company to move all the bike.” Why do they have to do this you ask?
The maintenance crew at CBS explained that “some of these spots are subject to complaints from local residents who say they have problems getting from one place to the next, in and around the neighbourhood, are having trouble walking their dogs, and that these are areas where if there is an emergency, the fire fighters or ambulances will not be able to gain access to the building.”
In the case that you do not heed our advice, and discover that your bike is gone, don’t panic, most likely it has been moved to a designated bike parking area.
At Dalgas Have, the bicycle parking spaces can be found either right in front of the main entrance or if that is completely packed, the maintenance crew will have moved your bike to the back – where there is always a vacant space. At Porcelænshaven, you can find the cellar located to the right of – if you are facing – the entrance.
The designated parking area at Porcelænshaven is in the cellar, which is located to the right of – if you are facing – the entrance.
One last piece of advice, if you leave Denmark for over one month, make sure to move your bike from the campus. If a bike is parked anywhere on campus for over one month, the maintenance crew will put a little slip on your handlebar and the commune will take it away… for good this time.
The Danish democracy festival Folkemødet attracts crowds of people every year. Several professors from CBS have been asked to participate and share their knowledge.

"Studying at an institute of higher education is not on the cards for everyone. I trained as a social and healthcare worker when I was 19 years old and now I have a master's degree in Human Resource Management. That meant I had a different background to many others on my programme, but that only creates positive input if you dare to use your experience and are proud of not taking the traditional route," says Lea Riis Jensen. She is a former CBS student and for years she thought she was never going to complete an education at a university. In this article she writes about her doubts about ever finishing the education of her dreams.

“We had all experienced how difficult it was to maneuver through the jungle of various scholarships and apply for funding for our exchange stays abroad, and we thought: Hey, we can make this process easier,” explains CBS student Morten Handest Høyer. Together with his two close friends, Christian Rudolf Larsen and Malte Jessen, he has started the company Legathjælp to help students find scholarships for their exchange stays abroad.
