Arriving at UCPH Housing Foundation

Please note that you can only access our office from Grundtvigsvej by foot or bike, and not by car, due to construction work being carried out by Frederiksberg Kommune. You can ONLY access in car from Bülowsvej/Dyrlægevej or Thorvaldsensvej/Grønnegårdsvej. Please note that our entrance door faces Grundtvigsvej, so if you arrive at the back of the building, please go around to the front door.

The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation

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

The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation is  not a part of the University of Copenhagen, it is a private foundation, but naturally the two institutions work closely together. However, all questions regarding your accommodation should be directed to us: contact@housingfoundation.ku.dk, and not to the University of Copenhagen.

We are a group of 5 employees, many of us with years of experience working with accommodation for international students and staff.

We are:

Søren Peter Hvidegaard Jensen (Director)
Mai-Britt Petersen, Housing Coordinator (Student contact)
Nesrin Tufanoglu, Housing Coordinator (Student and Staff contact)
Rebekka Marie Arborg Poulsen, Housing Coordinator (Student contact)
Lena Bech Pedersen, Finance and Accounts Manager

Board of Directors:
Erik Bisgaard Madsen (chairman)
