Halls of residence for Staff


The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation has access to several different halls of residence in Greater Copenhagen. They are located in different residential areas of Copenhagen and not on the university campuses. They are mainly reserved for students, but in a few of them there are rooms reserved for staff.  

Living in a dorm/halls of residence is a great way to meet people from different countries and be social. Most rooms are private studios, but there are also options where there are 2 single beds in the same room.

Halls of Residences

Common areas means common responsibilities

It is mandatory that everyone living in a residence hall must adhere the following:

  • Participates in cleaning and maintenance of the common areas, at least to the extent where you clean up after yourself. If you continuously fail to do so, a professional cleaning crew can ultimately be sent at your expense.
  • Whenever someone is moving out of a shared room, a thorough "spring cleaning" has to be carried out regardless of whether 1 or 2 people are moving out. If there is a bill for damages/cleaning upon inspection of the common areas the bill will be split between both the tenants in the shared room.
  • Pays attention to the other tenants living there and respect that everyone must compromise to the extent where you can both study and socialize in the residence.
  • Adheres to the general house rules in the hall of residence.
  • Is prepared to face and address issues with the other residents and solve problems in a civilized and democratic fashion. The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation solely gets involved if tenants have already attempted a solution on their own. The foundation has no knowledge or say over any students/tenants who do not have a rental contract with the Housing Foundation.
