KP strives to find accommodation for as many incoming students as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee to find housing for all students due to the shortage of housing in the greater Copenhagen area.
Be aware that if KP Housing send you a housing offer it will be the only one you receive. If you reject the housing offer or miss the deadline for completing the process, the room will be offered to the next student on the waiting list.
Incoming students will be housed in either private homes or student residences with other students. Please note that student residences are not separated by gender so you might share common facilities such as kitchen and bathroom with students of mixed gender. If you are offered a double room at a student residence you will always share room with a student of the same gender.
Please be prepared that the commute from your home to KP might be between half an hour and an hour each way, this is not unusual in the greater Copenhagen area.
When to apply for housing
In the month after the deadline to apply for an exchange at KP, you will receive an email with a link to apply for Housing.
Rent is paid on a monthly or full semester basis depending on the type of accommodation. A deposit may also be charged up front.
If the rent is charged for each semester, it will be independent from the actual study period of the semester.
Housing in the Copenhagen area is generally expensive, with prices varying between DKK 4700-7500 per month. Some places will charge rent for the entire semester up front.
Types of accommodation
KP offers a wide range of different accommodation for students. This can either be in a student residence, a room in a privately-owned apartment or a house through a private landlord. Please note that we are unable to accommodate any specific preferences.
Room in student residence
The student residences are located in the greater Copenhagen area. Depending on your study institution or placement, you may expect a daily commute of up to one hour each way.
Student residence rooms are simply furnished with a minimum of a bed, desk, desk chair, closet and a lamp. There will also be a towel, bedding and linen available. Bathrooms are either private or shared with other students. The kitchen is typically shared with other students.
Upon arrival, you will receive further information about keys or door code.
KP Housing can facilitate contact to a limited number of single and double rooms in private homes through private landlords.
The room will be furnished, and you will have access to kitchen, bathroom and internet.
If you accept the housing offer, you and the landlord are responsible for agreeing on the terms of your accommodation, e.g. the rental agreement, the procedure for payment and return of deposit, the handover of keys and any other practical matters
