About moving to Copenhagen
Moving away from home can at times be challenging and doing so in Copenhagen at the start of the academic year can be even more so. From the experience of former international students in the program, we recommend that you send applications for housing to the 'Centralindstillingsudvalget' (CIU) and 'Kollegiernes Kontor I København' (KKIK), since the sooner you do it, the better chance to get accommodation easily. You can find the addresses and more information on this housing link.The International Office also manages what is called the 'Mentor programme', in which you will be paired with a group of mentor students from UCPH. The main objective of this initiative is to help make your landing and firsts steps in Copenhagen smoother, and also to help you to start a social life outside the Master’s programme.
Related, you should also look out for the many associations and
social networks for students in Copenhagen. As one example, you can find a relatively new initiative
undertaken by students an the SCIENCE faculty: the International Student Society of Copenhagen .
Other relevant information for international students can be found at the International office at University of Copenhagen.
