Applications for housing are independent of applications for admission. Students will apply online through the University of Copenhagen Housing Foundation (UCPH). More information is available on the UCPH website.
Copenhagen – the capital of Denmark – was officially founded in 1167. The small fishing village, as it was then, prospered and developed into København – 'port of tradesmen'. Today Copenhagen is the commercial, cultural and administrative centre of Denmark, and the greater city area has a population of 1.2 million. Although busy and noisy as any large city, Copenhagen continues to captivate visitors because it has managed to maintain some of its original charm. Compared to many other cosmopolitan cities, it is considered a safe city.
