Halls of Residence
The University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation has dorms in different residential areas of Copenhagen, rather than on university campuses. 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. Facilities vary a great deal from hall to hall.

Typical things to expect when living in a Halls of Residence
- The residence halls usually have common kitchen facilities on each floor.
- Some residence halls have very small one-room studio apartments with their own, small kitchen.
- Most residence halls have a private bathroom (but there are some where you share the bathroom with the other residents on the floor).
- All halls of residence are self-catering and you will be cooking your own food. There is always a place to cook food in a hall of residence.
- There will be single rooms, as well as rooms with 2 single beds in the same room
Common areas means common responsibilities
When you have shared areas and facilities you also have shared responsibilities. It is mandatory that everyone living in a residence hall
Participates in cleaning and maintenance of the common areas. If there is a cleaning schedule, then you must respect it. If you fail to do so, a professional cleaning crew can ultimately be sent at your expense
- 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
