Two people sharing a room/apartment – University of Copenhagen

The descriptions here are basic information only. For full details, please read the relevant sections in the Booking Manual

Housing for more than one person

If you arrive with a partner or friend, there are different ways to book a room for the both of you. Please take note of the following: 

Renting a full studio

You are able to book a full studio for you and your partner, provided that you select a studio room marked as "2-person." This only requires one ID, and there will be one contract holder.

There will be 2 single beds in the room (one for you and one for your companion). You are of course welcome to re-arrange the furniture to suit your needs, but please arrange it to the original structure when you depart. 

You are not allowed to book a studio room marked as "Single" if your aim is live with a companion. There can only be one bed in these rooms. Furthermore, you will not be able to register two CPR numbers on the same address. 

Renting a shared room (half of 1 room)

These rooms will be marked with an A or a B (eg. 201A and 201B), and will also have the label "Shared." This allows for two users to book the same room (furnished with 2 single beds). 

If you and your (same-sex) friend or partner would like to share a room together, you can opt to book A, and your friend can book the B side. Each of you will have your own contracts and financial accounts. 

If you are a couple consisting of a woman and a man, one of you will need to enter faulty gender information, since the booking system by default is set to allow only same-sex occupants. This will allow you to view the same room. One of you will be able to book the A side, and the other can book the B side of the same room. Once the contract is in place you can change your sex back again. This is the only time we will ask you to cheat on your registration.

Apartments with Shared Rooms (A and B rooms)

Shared rooms (1 room with two beds) are in the following residences:

  • A/B Alleen
  • Det Ny Emdrupborg
  • Rebslagervej 
  • Sølvgade
  • Tåsingegade Kollegie
  • Øresunds

Should you require two beds in Sølvgade and there are only single rooms left in the housing system, please contact us as we may be able to make arrangements with specific rooms. 

Sharing with a spouse (and kids):

Family rooms are marked "Family" in the booking system. We do not have so many family options in the system, so please email us to see if we have other options. We cannot promise that we will. 

If you end up booking one of our family apartments, you are of course welcome to re-arrange the furniture to suit your needs, but please arrange it to the original structure when you depart.
