Housing for more than one person

If you arrive with a spouse or friend who is not related to UCPH you may need a housing option with two (or more) beds. Some of the housing options we offer are flexible so you can book accommodation for two (or more) persons, but only on one contract.

Shared rooms or studio apartments/two beds in one room.

Renting the full studio

There will be one contract. You will be booking both beds for the use of you and your companion, and the entire contract is issued to you. 

Renting the studio as a shared room

There will be two contracts. You will each have a contract issued to you.

This option is only possible for two UCPH students who are both eligible for housing services who would like to share a room, but still be financially and legally independent of each other. Please remember there is only one room which you will both sleep in. 

When booking on the system, these rooms will be marked with an A or a B. 

eg. 201A and 201B

Rooms for couples

The booking system is by default set to have only same sex tenants in the one-room residence (shared rooms).

In order to book the room as an ‘opposite sex’ couple one of you must tell a lie to the booking system and pretend to be the same sex as your spouse/ companion. Once the contract is in place you can change back again. This is the only time we will ask you to cheat on your registration.

Shared Rooms/A and B rooms

Rooms for two beds in 1 room are in the following residences:

  • Østerbro Kollegiet 
  • Tåsingegade Kollegiet 
  • Sølvgade
  • Rebslagervej 
  • Gimle
  • Øresunds
  • University Guest House
  • A/B Alleen
  • Det Ny Emdrupborg

Sharing with a spouse (and kids):

The above option also exists in some shared apartments with two or more rooms. The entire apartment, both (or all) rooms, furnished for two/three/four persons is booked by you and the one and only contract for the entire space will be issued to you.

You are of course welcome to re-arrange the furniture to suit your needs for your stay in Copenhagen, but please arrange it to the original structure when you depart.
