Safety and Keys

For safety reasons you must remember to always lock the door to your room when you are out, even when you are only gone for a couple of minutes and still in the building. The main door to the residence should always be locked, even if you are inside.

Making extra copies of the keys is not always possible, as they may be system keys.

If you lock yourself out of your room, we often (but not always!) have copies of room keys at the UCPH Housing Foundation, which you can pick up during office hours. If you lose your key the replacement is at your own expense.

Contact the UCPH Housing Foundation as soon as you discover the keys are missing and we will make the arrangements for you to get a new set and have the locks changed if necessary.

Please note that the replacement fee is approximately DKK 500 for new keys and approximately DKK 2000 to change the locks.
