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. For more information about a particular residence hall, please click on the specific residence below.

Halls of Residences for Students

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
  • 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 the tenants are from the Housing Foundation and have already attempted a solution on their own.
