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

Booking housing through the UCPH Housing Foundation online system will result in a booking fee. This fee does not apply if you just browse through the system. The booking fee is charged to your account after completing a booking, and is not to be paid in advance in order to access the system. You can find the fee amount in our list of fees. 

Binding fees when cancelling a booking after the cooling off period

The following fees apply to both staff and students: 

  • If you decide to cancel your booking after the 14 day cooling off period and prior to the start date of your contract you will be charged the Booking Fee and Early Cancellation Fee. This fee applies regardless of whether you have signed a rental contract. 
  • If you wish to cancel after the start date of your contract, and you haven't moved into the residence, you will be charged the Booking Fee, the Withdrawal Fee, and 1 month of rent.  The cancellation option does not apply if your contract rental period has surpassed 1 month after the first rental day. After this period, you are not able to cancel your contract. Please consult shortening offer options (if you are a student), and the shortening terms in your contract (if you are a staff). 
  • If you wish to cancel after the start date of your contract, and you have moved into the residence, you will be charged the Booking Fee, the Withdrawal Fee1 month of rent, and the Inspection/Maintenance Fee.  This cancellation option does not apply if your contract rental period has surpassed 1 month after the first rental day. After this period, you are not able to cancel your contract. Please consult shortening offer options (if you are a student), and the shortening terms in your contract (if you are a staff). 

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. Note that your own bank might charge an additional fee.

Transfers might take several days so make sure you take care of everything well in advance. Payments via bank may incur fees from your own bank.
