If you find accommodation by yourself, the University cannot help you with furniture and kitchen equipment. You should be aware that accommodation in Denmark is very seldom furnished.
The University does not have any insurance to cover any possible theft, fire etc. We strongly recommend that you take out adequate insurance while studying in Denmark. The following insurance coverage is recommended:
- Third-party liability insurance (‘ansvarsforsikring’) – covering expenses if you have to pay compensation to another person
- Accident insurance (‘ulykkesforsikring’) – covering the financial consequences of an accident
- Home insurance (‘indboforsikring’) – for your personal belongings
- Car insurance (‘bilforsikring’) – If you bring a car with you, please make sure it is properly insured. If you decide to take out the insurance in Denmark, try contacting some of the larger insurance companies. Their websites are in English.
In Denmark anyone who has a television or a computer, smartphone or tablet with internet access has to pay a media license. The media license fee is 2,492 DKK (updated November 2016) a year. The laws for the media license are set by Parliament and are described in the Executive Order on License Fees by the Ministry of Culture. DR collects the license in accordance with this order.
This means, media license is not included in the rent, as this is a personally tax.
