Welcome to the University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation (UCPH Housing Foundation). We are an independent foundation which assists certain groups of international students and researchers coming to the University of Copenhagen in finding accommodation.  

The Foundation is not a part of the University of Copenhagen. We are a private non-profit organization, but naturally the two institutions work closely together. All questions regarding your accommodation should be directed to us at contact@housingfoundation.ku.dk and not to the university.

Our website provides all the necessary information:

If you expect to be invited into the booking system soon, please take some time to explore the site in advance. This way you will be prepared to reserve accommodation once we send you your invitation to the booking system.

Extensions available for all existing tenants

We understand that, due to the ongoing Covid-19 epidemic, it is currently very difficult for all our existing tenants to find private housing when they leave us. Therefore, all existing tenants can now apply for up to a one-year extension with us. If you would like to be considered, please email us by 20 May 2020 with your details.
