Copenhagen University needs to work on finding international students if not nice, an ok place to live. Since the whole city lacks dormitory rooms for danish/international students, the university is placing the international students at private housing and most of my fellow international students found it unsatisfactory. I was lucky enough to get a room in a dormitory but I have heard so many complaints from other international students.

The housing service of Copenhagen University is not very helpful. The International Office didn't manage to provide all of the students with housing offers.

Organisation by the international office was terrible, people were trying to find accomodation for the first months of moving here, also, some people did not receive their deposits after they returned home.

Housing
Type of housing: Private dormitory for any student in Copenhagen.
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
It was very difficult getting to know people while living in Groenjordskollegiet. Few of the residents were students at KU, so there was no continuity of contact inside and outside of the classroom. Groenjords was also a considerable distance from downtown Copenhagen and the Anthropology Institute. I would rather have lived downtown with a Danish student as an apartmentmate.

There is no standard accomodation for KU. There are a host of privately owned kollegiums, which students live in while they attend any institute of learning in Copenhagen. The rooms were adequate and private, perhaps too private. Each resident has a locked cabinet and a refrigerator shelf in the kitchen. Each room had its own small bathroon. The place is made of concrete and utterly depresing. Among some of the Danish students it was known as the suicide dorm because of the atmosphere as well as an actual suicide that had taken place there many years back.

They could have tried better - they had chosen rooms with families without previously asking and the reception lady was extremely rude.
