Other options


Since it can be very difficult to find accommodation in Copenhagen we advise you to start early.

As everywhere, from time to time students are cheated by fictitious landlords. Be aware of offers that seem ‘too good to be true’, and preferably you should ask a local friend to check the lease before transferring rent and deposit. Read our guide to avoiding housing scams to avoid any unpleasant situations.
