Payment information

In this section you will find useful information regarding all aspects of your payment such as how you pay via bank transfer, why and how you pay a security deposit, the different payment plans for students and guests, and our detailed list of fees. Below you can see when the different fees become binding when using the booking system.

Booking fee

Please note that it costs a booking fee of DKK 600 to book housing through the UCPH Housing Foundation online system. This fee applies when you do a booking, but not if you just browse through the system without booking anything. The booking fee is charged to your account after you do a booking, and is not to be paid in advance in order to access the system.

Binding fees when cancelling a booking after the cooling off period

  • For students and staff: you make a booking = The Booking Fee is binding

  • For students and staff: You book a residence, you sign and upload a contract, 14 days (the cooling off period) pass and it is prior to to the start date of your contract, and you decide to cancel the booking = The Booking Fee + The Early Cancellation Fee is binding.

  • For staff: You book a residence, you sign and upload a contract, 14 days (the cooling off period) pass and it is after the start date of your contract, and you decide to cancel the booking= The Booking Fee + The Withdrawal Fee + The Inspection Fee + rent covering the period your contract has been active for, is binding.

  • For students: You book a residence, you sign and upload a contract, 14 days (the cooling off period) pass and it is after the start date of your contract, and you decide to cancel the booking= The Booking Fee + The Withdrawal Fee + The Inspection Fee + 1 month's rent is binding. Please note that this is only an option up until 1 month after the first rental day, and only  in case you did not yet move into the accommodation, e.g. if your stay in Denmark was cancelled.

Late Payment Reminder Fee

Approximately every 14 days you will receive a service message from the Finance and Accounts department of the UCPH Housing Foundation. This service message is merely to remind you that you have a payment coming up. If you miss a payment deadline we will charge a Late Payment Reminder Fee continuously every other week until your payment is received. The service message does not exempt you from being charged a late payment fee if you do not pay on time.

Bank Transfer Fee

If you pay via bank transfer the UCPH Housing Foundation charges a fee for reception. Please note that your own bank might charge an additional fee.

Kindly be aware that the transfer procedure might take several days; so make sure you take care of everything well in advance. Also please note that payments via bank may incur fees from your own bank.
