OUR ASSISTANCE, SERVICE and advice
The International accommodation Office at the Copenhagen campus readily provides guidance on how to search for accommodation in Copenhagen.
The housing situation in the capital is one of the most severe ones in Europe, and the task of securing affordable accommodation should not be underestimated. As Aalborg University Copenhagen unfortunately cannot offer any housing guarantee along with your place of study, we recommend starting your search as early as possible, preferably at least three months prior to your study start.
The best way to prepare for your search for accommodation is by reading the short accommodation guide from the International House Copenhagen: "Fact Sheet Accommodation" (.Pdf)
We also recommend reading our advice below and to visit two main websites providing crucial information for newcomers:
Since Danish law requires that you apply for a Civil Registration number (CPR number) if you stay more than three months, it is crucial that you are allowed to registre the CPR number at your accommodation adress in Denmark. Please take care to ask the landlord in writing before signing any contracts or transferring a deposit.

Important rule of thumb to avoid scams: Never transfer money to a non-Danish account - if the landlord owes or sublets property in Denmark they have a Danish bank account.
You have the possibility to book a personal appointment by writing to us on mail if you have a more specific question not addressed at our website. Please note that the IAO AAU CPH can only guide you with your search for accommodation but cannot provide legal assistance concerning rental contracts (non AAU), CPR registration issues, translations, disputes between tenants – private property owners, or matters alike.
