IMPORTANT INFORMATION for students already living in UCPH Housing Foundation housing:


Please note that the deadline for extending your contract for the spring semester is October 31st!

You do the extension yourself directly in your workflow by rebooking your room for the extension period (the end allocation date will be 14.07.15)



Please note that the deadline for shortening your contract from 2 to 1 semesters is October 31st!

You do the shortening yourself directly in your workflow by rebooking your room for only 1 semester (the end allocation date will be 31.01.15)



If you want to swap to a different residence for the spring semester, you can use your log-in for the booking system to look for new housing options - this will be possible from mid-November (week 47, Nov 17-21), when we invite new students for the spring semester. Please read more in section 9 in the Booking Manual. Remember that swapping to another housing option means you willl have 5 nights with no housing, since move-out is always 4 days prior to the contract end date.

If you swap to a different housing option for the spring semester, the system will automatically shorten your current contract to 1 semester.

About the University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation (UCPH Housing Foundation)

The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation (UCPH Housing Foundation) is an independent entity which from November 2013 assists international students and researchers coming to University of Copenhagen in finding accommodation while in Copenhagen.  

It is the only entity providing housing services. Housing service in various parts of the university such as at The International Office and at the Housing Department of the Faculty of Science has been transferred to the UCPH Housing Foundation.

We are a group of 6 employees, most of us being transferred from various housing departments at the University of Copenhagen. This means that no knowledge will be lost, both in regards to university procedures but also in regards to years of experience working with accommodation for international students and staff.


We are:

Charlotte Simonsen, Director of Housing

Katrine Russell, Accounts and Finance Manager

Eva Petersen, Housing Coordinator (Student contact)

Marianne Høimann, Housing Coordinator (Student contact)

Julie Rosenkilde Hannibal, Housing Coordinator (Staff contact)

Helene Bak, Housing Assistant


Board of Directors:

Grete Bertelsen, Chairman

Anders Boe Hauggaard

Lone Lund-Rasmussen

The various housing options available

Guidelines on how to apply

All practical information regarding your arrival, during your stay and also about your departure

Danish universities do not generally own housing facilities for guests and students. Danish students typically live at home, in private flats, or in one of the residence halls in the Greater Copenhagen area. Accommodation for our international students and guests we have to find through public as well as private housing companies.

Housing in the city of Copenhagen is difficult to find and it is very important to apply as soon as you have received the invitation from us to apply in our online system.

For the time being we have approximately 1000 rooms available for our approximately 3000 arriving guests a year. This means we depend on private home owners to ensure that everyone has a place to live once they arrive.

Please take some time to explore the different housing options we offer and this way also prepare to reserve your accommodation once we send you your invitation to apply online.
