Practical information and facilities
During your enrolment at UCPH you will need your student ID Card, your username and PIN code. You will receive important messages from UCPH on your KUmail, so be sure to check it often.
As a student at UCPH, you will receive a student ID card at study start. You must use the card for:
- identification for exams
- borrowing books at University libraries
- opening doors at the University.
The card will only be produced after you upload a photo of yourself via Self Service. Please note that there are a number of requirements for the photo:
- Your face must be recognisable.
- The photo must be square and a minimum of 200x200 pixels.
- The photo must not exceed 2 MB in size.
- The photo must be of the following format type: JPG (JPEG).
- The photo must contain only yourself, and it must reflect your current appearance. Cards with photos that do not reflect your appearance will be discarded and a new card will be produced when you have uploaded an adequate photo. This will delay your card by 2-3 weeks
As a student at UCPH, you have your own UCPH email account – the so-called KUmail. Your email account has the address [UCPH username]@alumni.ku.dk. You can log in to your email account via http://webmail.ku.dk or by clicking the link on the front page of KUnet. The password for the account is the same as the one used for KUnet.
On South Campus printing and copying for students is linked to the personal profile. This means that you have to use your KU username and PIN code, and your computer has to be connected to the wireless network eduroam. Please note that you have to log on to eduroam on the sc-domain (email@example.com).
In addition, you have to install a network printer on your computer:
- How to install printers on print/copy system at South Campus.
- Read How to use the network printer.
- Read how to scan to an e-mail address on a photocopier.
When you want to print, you have to select the correct network printer on your computer, click print, and then collect the printed material in a print/copy machine, using your KU username and your KU pincode.
Copy/Scan also requires that you log in with your KU username and PIN on the machine itself.
Eduroam is an international wireless network that allows students and staff, of higher education institutions, free and secure internet access worldwide. You can read more about how to set up eduroam on your device by following the instructions:
To use the print/copy system on South Campus, you have to be logged on to South Campus' network. You can do that via Eduroam.

Students at the Faculty of Humanities have access to libraries on campus as well as in other parts of Copenhagen. The Royal Library is the largest library in Denmark and consists of several departments. One of its departments is situated at the Faculty of Humanities.
The Royal Library, Faculty Library of Humanities
The library is situated in a modern building at the centre of campus and offers great study facilities. You will find quiet areas for intense periods of study as well as places for study groups and academic discussions. The library has a wireless internet connection which you are welcome to use free of charge.
The library also has a large selection of international newspapers and magazines which you can read in cosy surroundings on the ground floor. You will find more information on opening hours etc. at the Royal Library website.
Most departments have their own libraries, which function as reference libraries with limited lending facilities. Departmental libraries specialise in their own subjects. These libraries also offer places to study. For information about opening hours etc., please see the relevant departmental website or contact the department's international student counsellor.
You can see a list of departmental libraries here.
Municipal libraries can be found in every district of Copenhagen, as well as in the suburbs. You can search all the libraries in Denmark here. Once you have registered with the Danish authorities you can use the extensive network of public libraries free of charge. Your yellow health insurance card doubles as a library card.
