Some apartments have been renovated to fit modern standards, but the bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms are often very small. All apartments have been used by previous tenants so please expect some degree of wear and tear. Some apartments date back one or two hundred years. 

If you are coming to Copenhagen accompanied by someone who is not affiliated with the University (whether they are a spouse, partner or friend) this might be the right option for you.

Things to consider

  • Some apartments require that you pay electricity directly to the supplier, so it will not be part of your monthly rent. It will be stated on your rental contract if this is the case. 
  • Your neighbours may not necessarily be tenants of the Housing Foundation

To get an idea of the options we offer, please click on the specific residence below. The apartments vary in size, type, and facilities. Not all apartments allow children, so make sure to read the descriptions carefully.

Who has permission to move in and take address at your apartment/room and how many must live there.

If you think about sharing an apartment with someone it is important to read the following text.  You will receive a paper to clarify who is allowed to  stay in the apartment with you rented by UCPH Housing Foundation. The paper also tells how many there are allowed to live in the apartment/room and what you must do when a person moves in.
We get questions from time to time from tenants about these issues.

You must also be aware of the fact, that if a person want to move in in your apartment/room and apply for a CPR, the Local Authority (eg. Copenhagen Municipality) will contact UCPH Housing Foundation asking us to confirm if we will permit the person to take address at you. In this paper, we also describe the procedure we follow in such a situation.
Whom has permission to stay with you in your apartment/room and take address there?
Only members of your household are according to the Rental Act § 26 allowed to move in and take address at your apartment. Household includes your family and other close relationship.

A person with whom you have no other relationship than you have decided to share an apartment/room is not a member of your household and can therefor not move in and take address. If you anyway let the person move in, it is subletting.
According to your contract, you has no permission to sublet. If you are subletting, you are acting against your contract and it can be a violation of your contract.
If you are not sure, about a person being accepted as a member of your household you are always welcome to contact UCPH Housing Foundation.

How many persons can get permission to stay in the apartment and take address there?

Normally it is so, that when you rent a “one room” student apartment you are normally not allowed to stay other than yourself as contract holder and take address here.
Some of our “one room” apartments is possible to rent as a shared apartment, which means that there are two contract holders. In that case you do not have to be seen as a household.
Other “one room” apartments can have a size that makes it possible for a household with two persons to stay there.
For other apartments, according to the act of Housing Regulation § 52 a, we are not allowed to rent an apartment out to more than two person pr. living room (not including kitchen, bathroom etc.) and they shall all be members of the contract holders household. If we ask for it, you are bound to inform us about the size of your household and their relationship to you.

The procedure if a person asks the Local Authorities for CPR

When a person apply for CPR at the Local Authorities, they ask UCPH Housing Foundation if we permit the person to take address at your apartment.
We send you a scheme you must fill in. In the scheme, you must tell us who is member of your household, and their relationship to you. You must also tell us about your relationship to the person who has applied for CPR.
We will then tell you if we accept membership of your household and what we answer the Local Authorities.

Private Apartments
