Accommodation in Copenhagen

Important advice

  • Please note that the housing situation in Copenhagen is very difficult and it takes some time and effort to secure your accommodation.
  • We advise you to budget with a rent from DKK 3.500 to DKK 4.500 per month depending on location and standard.
  • A deposit is required from most landlords and is normally 1 month's rent for a room and 3 months rent for an apartment.
  • Please be aware of scams and be wary of deals that are "too good to be true".
  • Watch out for landlords/owners who are out of the country, travelling or cannot meet you personally.
  • If possible, check out the room or apartment personally. You can also check with a Niels Brock Buddy whether they can help you check the room. Use the Facebook forum created for your semester. You must at least have someone check that the apartment actually exists.
  • You should never send money via Western Union or other private money transfer institutions. Use only authorised banks for transferring money and ask the landlord to send identification details – e.g. a copy of a passport.
  • You should always sign a contract with your landlord. Study the contract carefully and be sure to check deadlines for how to give notice.

Life in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is one of the oldest and loveliest capitals of the world and the largest city in Scandinavia. It has a population of 1.5 million and is the capital of the world's oldest kingdom.

The architecture reflects the medieval origin and the city combines Old World charm with the life of a European metropolis. Among the joys of the city is its cleanliness and relative lack of traffic as most of the city centre is for pedestrians only.

Living with the Danes you will soon encounter the ancient cult of "hygge" which is almost impossible to translate fully but is a special feeling of warmth and cosiness with good food and drink added! Copenhageners are generally friendly, helpful and most of them speak English. Interacting with Danes is generally enjoyed in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
