Fees

Please take a look at and familiarize yourself with our list of fees to avoid any unpleasant surprises or misunderstandings. 

The fees are evaluated once a year (typically before the fall semester) and therefore are subject to change.

Mandatory fees at Signalhuset, Øresunds, Tietgen, and Kagså

The following fees only apply for tenants with a contract for Signalhuset, Øresunds, Tietgen, and Kagså.

Administration and Handling: DKK 2875 (one time cost applied to the beginning of each semester). Since these dorms are classified as social housing by the authorities, we may not charge for administration and handling procedures as part of the overall rent, as we usually do. Therefore we must make a separate charge for these services. 

Furniture Services: DKK 250 per person per month (DKK 500 at Tietgen). In Denmark, dormitory rooms are usually not furnished, so the UCPH Housing Foundation provides furniture for all the rooms it rents out. However, as these four dormitories are classified as social housing by the authorities, this means we may not charge for furnishing the room as part of the overall rent, as we usually do. Therefore we must make a separate charge for costs relating to buying, placing, and maintaining furniture in these dorms.
