Personal comments
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.

Final comments
The easiest way to get to Copenhagen is to take a plane to Malmo in Sweden, with the cost even lower then for a train or ferry. Try also to arrange a living place for at least first two weeks before you get here (some student hostels may be good fer thet) then just start looking for an accomodation.
