The University of Copenhagen - Faculty of Humanities is unable to facilitate accommodation for full degree students.
Due to the limited number of available dorms, rooms and apartments in the Greater Copenhagen area, finding long-term accommodation can be difficult. We advise students to begin the search for housing in Denmark as soon as they have accepted an offer of admission. Searching for accommodation after your arrival in Denmark is not recommended.
For information on finding housing, please refer to: →Advice on finding accommodation
Full degree students are required to obtain a residence permit in order to reside in Denmark for the duration of their enrolment as a student at the Faculty of Humanities.
For further information, visit →International Education and Grants' website.
If you are a non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizen, please be aware that you will need to obtain a residence permit prior to entering Denmark. Information will be forwarded to you in the offer of admission. For more information, please consult →International Admissions at the Faculty of Humanities.
Civil registration number (CPR-number)
Once you have arrived in Denmark, you are required to register with the Citizen Service Registration Office.
In order to obtain a CPR number, you are required to have a valid Danish residence permit (non-EU/EEA citizens) or a Danish registration certificate (EU/EEA citizens), along with proof of residential address in Denmark.
You can find more information about how and where to register at →International Citizen Service.
We hope that your stay in Copenhagen will be a pleasant experience without any major problems or difficulties. Still, there are some practical issues to be aware of, should you find yourself in a situation where you may need help or special guidance.
