If you are unable to hand in the keys within our opening hours you can leave them in our mail slot in the main door to the office, Grundtvigsvej 14A. Make sure you put everything in an envelope that is marked clearly with your name, Danish address, and room number, and that key sets are complete and identifiable (tagged).


You must hand back your keys on your move-out date. Please make sure your keys and other items you were given are handed back into the UCPH Housing Foundation office (or left in our mailbox - please see below), or at the residence's office.

Key(s) should all be handed back, kept together on a key ring and with the ID-tag you received them with. Please do not present us with loose, unidentifiable keys or incomplete key sets. If we do not have the keys on time we will have to make replacements at your cost.

Returning more than just keys?

Laundry cards or key cards must be returned. Replacement cards are DKK 250,- each.

If you received a USB internet stick (only very few residences), this should also be returned to us (including paperwork and pin code). The replacement cost is DKK 375,-

The TDC Homeboxes for internet connection should NOT be returned - please let it stay in the room/apartment for the next tenant to use.

If the tenancy is not vacated in time or the keys are not returned we reserve the right to bill the arriving tenants delay expenses to you: Hotel, storage of luggage, transport and the likes.
