Halls of residence – University of Copenhagen

Halls of residence for staff

The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation has access to several different halls of residence in Greater Copenhagen. They are located in different residential areas of Copenhagen and not on the university campuses. They are mainly reserved for students, but in a few of them there are rooms reserved for staff:

In Østerbro Kollegiet we have reserved the entire 1st floor for staff. Here there are both single and shared rooms available. Each studio has a private bathroom and kitchenette. If you're staying in a shared room you will be sharing these facilities with the other person.

In Nordre Fasanvej Kollegiet we have reserved the 4th floor floor staff. Here there are only single rooms available. Each studio has a private bathroom and kitchenette.

In Tåsingegade Kollegiet we have reserved most rooms on the 1st floor for staff. The other floors are occupied by students.

All halls of residence are self-catering and you will be cooking your own food. There is always a place to cook food in a hall of residence.

Is A Hall of Residence Right For Me?

When trying to decide if a hall of residence is the housing solution for you, you should keep in mind that it is a great way to meet people, there is always somebody around, and if you make an effort, this is a great opportunity to get to know people from many different countries.

However, you should be aware that all the people and the many activities can sometimes be overwhelming. So, if you prefer to study in your room and it has to be absolutely quiet, maybe a hall of residence is not the right place for you.

It is mandatory that everyone living in a residence hall

  • Participates in cleaning and maintenance of the common areas, at least to the extent where you clean up after yourself.
  • Pays attention to the other tenants living there and respect that everyone must compromise to the extent where you can both study and socialize in the residence.
  • Adheres to the general house rules in the hall of residence.
  • Is prepared to face and address issues with the other residents and solve problems in a civilized and democratic fashion If you have issues with other tenants, you should be prepared to deal with the issue yourself and for instance complain directly to them if a problem should arise. The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation solely gets involved if the tenants have already attempted a solution on their own and then only if it is between two international students at the University of Copenhagen. Also note that the University of Copenhagen solely has contact with tenants who got their housing via the Foundation and has no knowledge of or say over any other students.

Common areas - common responsibilities

You are responsible for keeping all areas you have access to tidy and clean at all times. You are required to participate in common area cleaning and keeping to a cleaning schedule if there is one. If you continuously fail to do so, a professional cleaning crew can ultimately be sent at your expense. Whenever someone is moving out of a shared room, a thorough "spring cleaning" has to be carried out. When there are common areas both UCPH Housing Foundation tenants must participate in carrying out the move-out “spring cleaning” even if not both tenants are moving out at the same time. If there is a bill for damages/cleaning upon inspection of the common areas the bill will be split between both the tenants in the shared room.
