What is it like to live at Majparken?  

Our unit is situated within a seven-story building, with the shared apartments for group housing distributed across four of these floors. The studio apartments are conveniently grouped on a single floor. Our studio apartments are equipped with their own kitchen facilities, providing residents with added convenience and autonomy. 

In terms of furnishings, our apartments are left unfurnished, allowing you the freedom to personalise and decorate them according to your preferences. 

On weekdays, the majority of our residents actively engage in various day activities, while many also enthusiastically participate in leisure pursuits. Our community enjoys a wide range of communal activities, including outdoor adventures and diverse games. Creative pursuits such as drawing, singing, crafts, and trips to the theatre are popular among our residents. 

We often have cooking sessions where residents work with our staff, fostering a sense of togetherness and shared experiences.
